New York apartment sells for NZ$105m
The family of a Russian billionaire has bought a New York City penthouse apartment for US$88 million (NZ$105.3m).
The Wall Street Journal says the property on Central Park West in Manhattan is now the most expensive apartment in New York.
The seller was Sanford I Weill, the former head of Citigroup Inc. It was bought by a trust for the daughter of Dmitry Rybolovlev.
Features of the apartment include a wraparound terrace.
The Journal says the sale generated nearly US$2.5 million in city and state taxes.
The brokers' commission: about US$3.5 million.
The deal closed on Wednesday (Thursday, NZ time).
Weill previously said he plans to donate the proceeds of the sale to charity.
