Bruce Ratner and 130 Furman; Kenneth Griffin and 220 Central Park South

Billionaire hedge funder Ken Griffin’s record-shattering buy of a penthouse at 220 Central Park South stole the show this week for residential sales not just in New York City, but across the country. But there were some other memorable deals that popped up in records over the past seven days. Here’s our list.

Source: A TRD review of public records filed with the New York City Department of Finance from Jan. 18 to Jan. 24.

1.) Forest City Ratner co-founder Bruce Ratner along with Linda Johnson snapped up a condominium along the Brooklyn waterfront. The couple paid $4.7 million for the two-bedroom pad at 130 Furman Street. Ratner split from Dr. Pamela Lipkin, a plastic surgeon, who at one point during the couple’s divorce had alleged Ratner was trying to evict her from her clinic at 128 East 62nd Street.

2.) Brett Yormak, CEO of BSE Global, which manages the Brooklyn Nets, the Barclays Center and other entities, sold a penthouse at 303 East 49th Street in Turtle Bay. The listed buyer, Hui Zhang, paid $3.65 million for the four-bedroom triplex.

3.) Jennifer Sunwoo, chief merchandising officer at Barneys New York, bought a three-bedroom co-op for $3.55 million at 103 East 75th Street in Lenox Hill. The sellers were listed as Gregory and Kendall Ley.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly listed Jennifer Sunwoo as the chief marketing officer at Barneys; she is the chief merchandising officer.
