How does a Times business reporter and author of an acclaimed tome on the implosion of the financial system buy an apartment? By paying more than the asking price! That sweet pad above is co-op #4B at 118 West 79th Street, which now belongs to business reporter/writer Andrew Ross Sorkin, according to records filed with the city this afternoon. Sorkin and his wife paid $2.315 million for the apartment, which was listed for $2.295 million and last sold in 2004 for $1.85 million. That's one way to help the market along.
