The Times' Big Deal column reports today that Paul Marcarelli, the "can you hear me now?" dude from the Verizon commercials, has sold his 2BR apartment at 41 Fifth Avenue for $1.255 million. That's down from the $1.425 million he originally wanted (but a profit from the $1.19 million he paid in 2006), so maybe he was eager to leave. Bad cell reception? We're still a little jealous that the guy had a $1.255 million apartment to begin with. And he'll probably be able to buy an iPhone soon, too.
