[Three Cents Worth #276 NY] Proving New York’s Blockbuster $100M Sale Is An Outlier

It’s time to share my Three Cents Worth (3CW) on Curbed NY [1], at the intersection of neighborhood and real estate in the capital of the world [2]…and I’m here to take measurements.

Check out my 3CW column [3] on @CurbedNY:

Finally, after nearly two years of referring to the $88 million sale at 15 Central Park West as the “highest Manhattan residential sale on record,” we get a change of scenery. A new record was set with the $100.47 million sale of the penthouse at One57 recorded late last week. Timing is everything, although, in this case timing really wasn’t. I believe this sale went to contract in 2012, which would be shortly after the $88 million sale went to contract in December 2011 and closed in early 2012. While these super luxury sales are more of a circus sideshow and have little, if anything, to do with the vast majority of the Manhattan housing market, I find them surreal to consider…
