If you wanted fireworks last week, you had to wait until the 4th of July. Which is not to say that the total of 24 contracts that were signed at $4 million and above was nothing to cheer about. In fact, the activity was a refreshing way to kick off the summer.
For example: Going against the prevailing trend, the No. 1 contract was 73A at 432 Park, asking $33.750 million, RAISED from $29.750 million when it was marketed off of floorplans in 2013. Now completed, the condo has 4,019 square feet including 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a library, and spectacular views of the city, East River, and Central Park.

Amenities include a fitness center, a 75-foot pool, private dining, parking, a garden, and a children’s playroom.
The No. 2 contract was 33 West 71st Street, asking $13.995 million, reduced from $18.5 million when it went on the market in November 2014.
