A 51st floor penthouse at the Trump International traded hands for $33 million, according to property records filed with the city today. The four-bedroom unit at 1 Central Park West was originally listed for $43 million and most recently dropped to $37.5 million.

The roughly 5,000-square-foot unit has four-and-a-half bathrooms and overlooks Central Park and the Hudson River.

The transaction closed on January 9. Corcoran Group’s Cathy Franklin and Alexis Bodenheimer, who were previously at Brown Harris Stevens, had the listing. The unit was completely renovated and “received a lot of offers,” Franklin said.

Every single room boasts a spectacular view, Franklin added, including the shower.

The seller of the unit in the Philip Johnson and Costas Kondylis-designed building, is listed on the deed as an LLC called DLNH and Bean. Socialite Elizabeth Ross Johnson, New York Jets owner Robert Wood Johnson’s sister and heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, used to live in the unit but sold it in 2007 for $18.5 million. That buyer immediately flipped the place for $21.1 million.
