It was a big week for celebrities trying to sell their New York City pads. The New York Post reported that singer Katy Perry and Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez each recently found buyers for their multimillion dollar Manhattan apartments. Alex Rodriguez sold his 3,585-square-foot, full-floor apartment on the 35th floor of the Rushmore, at 80 Riverside Boulevard on the Upper West Side, for $6.6 million.

While the sale had previously been reported, the price had not been determined. It works out to $1.4 million less than the $8 million he sought through Modlin Group broker Adam Modlin, but more than the $5.5 million he paid for it last year. Fox Residential Group President Barbara Fox brought the buyer to the table, who also paid $400,000 for A-Rod’s furniture.

Meanwhile, Perry sold her 1,500-square-foot Tribeca duplex penthouse at 65 North Moore Street to a mystery buyer for near its $2.75 million asking pice just two months after putting it on the market. The unit, which she bought with ex-husband Russell Brand in late 2010 for about $2.7 million, was listed by John Prince of Prudential Douglas Elliman. [Post] and [Post]
