New York City’s residential real estate world recently saw the sale of a record-breaking, nearly $80 million townhouse deal and the U.S. government picking up a penthouse at 50 United Nations Plaza. These are some other top deals that hit public records last week:

Source: A TRD analysis of public records filed with the New York City Department of Finance from June 3 to June 7.

1.) Vanity Fair’s former editor officially closed on the sale of his 22 Bank Street townhouse for $17.4 million. The buyer of Graydon Carter’s three-story West Village home, which went to 22 Bank Street LLC, reportedly tied to producer Scott Rudin. Carter had acquired the property in 1998 for $2 million.  Meanwhile, Carter and his wife Anna Scott Carter earlier this year bought two co-ops on Fifth Avenue for just under $7 million.

2.) Thomas and Judith Iovino bought a three-bedroom co-op at 1115 Fifth Avenue, next to Central Park in Carnegie Hill, for $7.75 million. Thomas Iovino founded Judlaw Contracting in 1981, a construction firm that undertook billions of dollars in work for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. He retired from Judlau and as CEO of OHL North America, Judlau’s parent company, in 2017. The Corcoran Group listed the unit in October for $8.45 million, according to StreetEasy. The sellers were listed as Staci and John Barber.

3.) MetLife’s CEO Michel Khalaf and Andrea Khalaf picked up a penthouse for $6.8 million at 120 East 87th Street, known as the Park Avenue Court condominium building in Carnegie Hill. Spanning 3,000 square feet, the deal pencils out to $2,267 per square foot. Khalaf became the insurance giant’s chief executive in January, after serving as the firm’s president of business in the U.S. and Europe, Middle East and Africa. The sellers of the four-bedroom pad were recorded as Steven and Jean Mayer, who had bought the unit in 2011 for $4.35 million. The property went on the market for $6.75 million in February, according to StreetEasy. Douglas Elliman’s Lauren Muss had the listing.

4.) Falling in line with other buyers at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South, the buyer of unit 31B also is a mystery. The entity 220 CPS 31, LLC shelled out about $16.5 million for the two-bedroom, 2,455-square-foot pad, pricing the deal at roughly $6,740 per square foot. Its offering price was $16.25 million.
