In a Quiet Month, More Big Sales at 220 Central Park South

Several more apartments at the nearly sold-out 220 Central Park South closed in September, topping the list of sales in New York City in an otherwise quiet month for luxury real estate.A sprawling unit on the 72nd floor of the Midtown tower sold for $63.1 million, while one on the 71st floor went for $62.6 million, and one on the 69th for $61.6 million. All three deals, though, had been under contract before the coronavirus surfaced and the presidential campaign began to heat up — both of which have led many potential buyers to remain on the sidelines.The appraiser Jonathan J. Miller noted that sales activity had picked up since real estate restrictions were eased in the city this summer, “but remains short of year-ago levels due to Covid and the typical election-year slowdown from summer through Election Day.”Among the other sizable transactions in September was a 72nd-floor apartment at 53 West 53rd Street, the recently opened sculptural tower adjoining the newly renovated Museum of Modern Art. The closing price was $29.9 million and it, too, was in contract long before the pandemic.ImageOne57, the blue-glass condo at 157 West 57th Street, has striking views of Central
