The record for the most expensive co-op ever sold in New York City has already been broken twice this year, and now it might be shattered, yet again. Billionaire owner of the New York Jets, Woody Johnson, is quietly seeking buyers for his 14-room duplex at 834 Fifth Avenue, and the Post reports that he has accepted an offer for a whopping $80 million, $5 million more than the asking price. The current record is held by a $71.3 million sale at 740 Park Avenue (before that, it was a $70 million sale at 960 Fifth Avenue, and before that, it was a $54 million sale at 785 Fifth Avenue). There are no listing photos for Johnson's home, but the brokerbabble paints quite a fancy picture.
