Money still can’t buy an easy commute from Greenpoint, but it can fetch a pretty sweet pad — an unnamed buyer is in contract to purchase a 1,400-square-foot waterfront penthouse at Saddle Rock Equities’ the Gibraltar for $2.1 million.

The per square foot price at the new condominium, at $1,482, is a record for the G train-locked neighborhood. According to listing agent Bryan Atienza, of Nest Seekers International, the prior record-holder was the June sale of 90 Guernsey Street Unit 6, which sold for $1,350 a square foot.
