New, 14 comments

CHELSEA—The $47.5 million penthouse two at Walker Tower has entered contract for an unreleased sum. The five-bedroom home with 360-degree views represents one of the priciest sales in the building to date, and in the city this year. [NYO; previously]

UPPER EAST SIDE—Central Park enthusiasts, behold. The Museum of the City of New York is displaying the rarely seen Greensward Plan for Central Park, the original 1858 design by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux which won the competition to improve the park and shaped it into what we know and enjoy today. The pen-and-ink map sprawls 4-feet by 12-feet, and is on loan from the New York City Parks Department now through January 2015. [CurbedWire inbox; MCNY]
