J. Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons listed her beautiful Park Slope townhouse at 178 Garfield Place in November for $3.75 million. It was in contract by early December, and now the sale has closed and the deed's in public record. The property went for an even $4 million, 7 percent over the asking price, to Vincent and Tracy Martin. Lyons and her husband, from whom she has split, paid just $1.3 million for the 4,400-square-foot house in 2004. Another interesting tidbit from the deed: Lyons' new address is listed as Tribeca's American Express Carriage House. The unit in question was last listed for $5.895 million.
