New York City saw some high-profile residential sales this past week. For instance, a marijuana executive and his wife picked up Extell Development’s Carlton House at 19 East 61st Street for $27.5 million — about half of its asking price in 2014. Here are some other transactions to note.

1.) A penthouse at 2150 Broadway, also known as the Laureate condominium in the Upper West Side, traded for just under $10.5 million. The buyer was recorded as Marcos Rodriguez. The unit has a tie-in from the real estate world: Seller CWB Realty Holdings LLC bought it from developer Maurice Mann in 2014 for $9.3 million.

2.) A unit in one of the city’s oldest co-op buildings, 34 Gramercy Park East, is officially off the market. Friedrike Merck, heiress to pharmaceutical giant Merck, sold a one-bedroom unit for $2.25 million after restoring it with period details from when the building was built in 1883, according to the property’s listing with the Corcoran Group. The buyer was recorded as Julie Harkins, through a trust.

3.) Joel and Ulrika Citron snapped up a sponsor unit at 116 University Place in Greenwich Village for $9.7 million. Joel is CEO of Tenth Avenue Holdings, a diversified holding company, and Ulrika is active in the nonprofit world. Architect Morris Adjmi designed the six-story building, which was developed by Ranger Properties and KD Sagamore Capital.

4.) Tomer Pinkusiewicz, a partner at law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, and Julie Zeruneith dropped about $13.2 million for a penthouse at Taconic Investment Partner’s71 Laight Street, known as the Sterling Mason. The four-bedroom duplex had seen several price chops over the years. In 2013 it had been listed for $20 million, according to Compass, which had the listing.
