Notable NYC Neighbors

APRIL 19, 2012

Retired Yankees catcher Jorge Posada recently lowered the price on his 5,600 square-foot Upper East Side condo in The Seville at 300 East 77th Street. The condo, which is a combination of several smaller units that Posada and his wife purchased over several years, was reduced from $11.5 million to $10.5 million (CurbedNY). The Seville was built in 2002 and features a wine cellar, fitness room, kids’ playroom and garage.

Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz (a.k.a. Ad-Rock) recently sold his SoHo townhouse—purchased for $2.3 million in 2000—at 186 Spring Street for $5.5 million. The buyer was Canadian developer Stephane Boivin, who bought the eight-room home for his own personal use—probably so he can keep an eye on his planned mixed-use development at 182 Spring Street that’s just steps away (RealDeal).

An enormous duplex at 740 Park Avenue is reportedly in contract at the asking price of $60 million. It belongs to Courtney Sale Ross, who, along with her late husband, TimeWarner CEO Steve Ross, combined two units in the classic 1930 Rosario Candela-designed co-op building to create the 30-room manse.  It's the latest in a series of jumbo-ticket sales starting with the $88 million sale of Sandy Weill's penthouse at 15 Central Park West in December (NYObserver).

Get a peek inside celebrity fashion wag Joan Rivers’s opulent 5,200-square-foot penthouse at 1 East 62nd Street, steps from Central Park and Fifth Avenue: The comedienne is selling the apartment, which features 23-foot ceilings, for $29.5 million (Curbed).
