In April, we told you about a six-bedroom Upper East Side townhouse that was asking $18 million, over five times more than the $3.375 million it sold for in 2000. In November, we told you that 21 East 83rd Street sold for $14.75 million. Well, the sale has now closed and Merrill Lynch VP Micahael Applebaum unloaded it for $14.4 million, The Real Deal reported. The buyer: attorney Rando Mastro, who is currently representing DraftKings in its fight against New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s cease-and-desist order against it and competing site FanDuel.
Mastro also did the internal investigation of New Jersey Gov. Christ Christie’s so-called "Bridgegate" scandal and served as deputy mayor to Rudy Giuliani. As for the townhouse, it has an elevator, double-height ceilings, and "antique glass paned doors sourced in France."
