Curtis Martin Back Out of Buying Brooklyn's Priciest Apt.

New, 21 comments

The noise coming from One Brooklyn Bridge Park is the hissing sound of major deflation. Former New York Jets star Curtis Martin, who was previously reported to have a contract in hand for the triplex penthouse at 1 BBP, isn't going to be buying after all. The Post, which also reported back in September that Martin was buying the most expensive apartment in Brooklyn, conveys the balloon-popping never mind today: "The retired NFL running back has decided not to buy the borough's most expensive apartment - a $7.25 million waterfront penthouse with staggering views of Manhattan, a Jets spokesman confirmed Friday. No reason was given." Until a new suitor willing to open up the checkbook comes along, it looks like the Brooklyn price champion will still be the $3.8 million penthouse at the Aurora in Williamsburg.
