Last Week’s Biggest Sales


1. PARK SLOPE $4,000,000
178 Garfield Place GMAP P*Shark
This is J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyon’s much-talked about Park Slope townhouse. As a HOTD, we noted: “Beautiful place, great location, nothing not to like, really, except maybe the price, which weighs in at a hefty $3,750,000. Who knows: It’s definitely the kind of place someone with dough could fall in love with and just have to have.” Entered into contract on 12/2/11; closed on 2/06/12; deed recorded on 3/26/2012.

2. DUMBO $3,000,000
30 Main Street, #11G GMAP P*Shark
A Condo of the Day in December: “This 2,500-square-foot corner loft in Dumbo’s Sweeney Building at 30 Main Street is pretty darn sweet and the owners know it, which is why they’ve floated a $3,100,000 asking price.” #11G was the most expensive on a per-square-foot basis than any of the four other units currently on the market in the building. According to the Real Deal, this unit was actually sold by Vince Clark, a musician and songwriter who purchased Jenna Lyons home above!
