He knows a good deal when he sees one.

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank CEO Barry Gosin and his wife, Jacqueline, paid $5 million for a co-op at 200 Central Park South, according to a deed that hit property records on Wednesday.

The seller was the Bernard and Anne Spitzer Charitable Trust, headed by Eliot Spitzer and named after the former governor-turned-real estate developer’s parents.

Bernard Spitzer developed the 35-story tower near Seventh Avenue in 1963 and sponsored its co-op conversion in 1984. In 2013, he moved into a rental apartment on the 27th floor.

The Gosins’ new pad, unit 19B, was not listed for sale. But units 18B and 20B – which measure 1,850 square feet each and likely have similar layouts – feature curved windows and wraparound terraces facing Central Park South, according to prior listing information for those units. Unit 18B sold for $975,000 in 1997 and 20B sold for $2.9 million in 2004.

Barry Gosin declined to comment.

In 2010, the Gosins purchased the Westchester County estate of Eastern Consolidated founders Peter Hauspurg and Daun Paris for $9.4 million.

The 26-acre parcel, on Croton Lake Road in Bedford Corners, includes three residences, a pool, two-story pool house and tennis court. Hauspurg and Paris paid $4.25 million for the home in 2000.
