It's Rupert Murdoch and $44 Million at 834 Fifth

We'd been hearing Wilbur Ross, but no, it's Rupert Murdoch who has agreed to drop $44 million for the Rockefeller triplex at 834 Fifth Avenue, reports William Neuman. If the co-op board approves the deal, Murdoch will be required to fork over all cash for the place?not to mention the $21,469.07 monthly maintenance. The deal, as reported earlier this week, is the largest residential sale in New York real estate history?at least until next month. (P.S. Happy holidays to the Brown Harris Stevens agents on the deal, Mary Rutherford and Hal Wilkie. Drinks on them!)
