UPDATE: March 19, 1:05 p.m.: Former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter and his wife Anna Scott Carter are creating quite the spread in the Village.

The couple closed on two co-ops at 40 Fifth Avenue for $6.995 million, records filed with the city show. The seller of one unit was financier Peter Karches Jr. and the other was Sarah Arison. Compass’ Clayton Orrigo marketed the units as a four-bedroom duplex asking $6.995 million.  Orrigo declined to comment on the sale of the first unit that closed in February. Meanwhile, movie producer Scott Rudin and his husband John Barlow are going to buy Carters’ 3,200-square-foot Bank Street townhouse for north of $15 million, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the transaction.

Here are some other notable resi deals that closed last week:

1) Edmondo Schwartz, co-founder of independent film distributor Greenwich Entertainment and a local real estate developer, bought the five-bedroom penthouse atop 50 Gramercy Park North for $6.4 million. The deal prices out to about $1,524 per square foot. The property, previously owned by an Icelandic businessman who bought the unit in 2011 for about $22 million, had seen numerous price cuts over the years. Most recently it was listed for $8.5 million in April, per StreetEasy. The building has had other notable buyers over the years. The late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld sold his pad there for $4.5 million in 2013, and designer Derek Lam picked up a unit in 2014 for $4.8 million.

2) Mo and Hilary Koyfman picked up a co-op at 200 Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights for $5.295 million, or just over $1,800 per square foot. Mo Koyfman is a venture capitalist and former partner at Spark Capital, which has backed eyeglasses company Warby Parker and fintech startup Plaid. He has since founded MOKO Brands, an investment firm that focuses on consumer and technology brands. Hilary Koyfman is an interior designer who has designed spaces like the Wing, a women’s only community and co-working space. The 2,935-square-foot home has three bedrooms, an office and library, according to its listing with the Corcoran Group. The unit is located in an eight-story pre-war co-op one block away from the Brooklyn waterfront. Corcoran’s Leslie Marshall and James Cornell had the listing. The sellers were Andrew Martin and LisaMarie Casey. Joshua Wesoky of Compass represented the Koyfmans.

3) Artist Eric Fischl sold the Soho pad that served as his studio at 37 Greene Street for $4.75 million, a deal that prices out to about $1,440 per square foot. Fischl’s work has been featured in museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. He’s married to painter April Gornik, and the two live in Sag Harbor, New York. As for the most recent sale, the 3,300-square-foot loft, which has 13-foot ceilings and Corinthian columns, was first listed in September for $4.3 million, according to StreetEasy. The property served as the artist’s workspace, said Bruce Ehrmann, whose Anderson-Ehrmann team at Douglas Elliman had the listing. The apartment’s buyer was “37 Greene Version 2.0, LLC.”
