From the January issue: The news that former Citigroup chairman Sanford Weill found a buyer for his 15 Central Park West penthouse — listed only three weeks earlier for $88 million — rocked the real estate community last month.

The buyer, a Russian fertilizer billionaire named Dmitry Rybolovlev, purchased the spread for his 22-year-old daughter, and an anonymous source told Forbes that she would be paying full price. If that’s true — when contacted by The Real Deal, a spokesperson for the family declined to say — the price would demolish previous records for the most expensive Manhattan residential sale.
