• Actress Demi Moore finally closed on her triplex penthouse atop the south tower of the landmark San Remo. It took two years to reach a deal, and a $US30 million ($40.4 million) reduction from the original asking price, which had included a two-bedroom maisonette.

The $US45 million sale of PH26C last month, minus the additional apartment, was still the highest price ever paid for a residence at the twin-peaked, Emery Roth-designed building at 145-146 Central Park West, between 74th and 75th streets. The previous record, $26.4 million, was set in 2014.
