Rounding out the top five: 268 Bay 38th Street, a 140-unit Bensonhurst rental, sold for $20.5 million; 350 Hicks Street, a garage Continuum Health Partners owned while it operated LICH went to SUNY Downstate for $17.2 million; and a 113-unit apartment building at 2440 East 29th Street in Sheepshead Bay fetched $16.3 million.
