It's Good to Be Vikram Pandit

TEXT
(To be read in the voice of Robin Leach.) Vikram Pandit, Citigroup's newish head of alternative investments, is apparently not so bothered that CAI profit has dropped 40 percent since he started with the division, or that the Old Lane hedge fund he sold them for around $800 million dropped 5.9 percent last month. He's just plunked down $17.9 million for Tony Randall's apartment in Central Park West's Beresford Building, a ten-room spread that occupies an entire floor. According to the listing, it is a "truly superb residence," with "superb light," "impressive park views," herringbone wood floors, a fireplace, coffered ceilings, a butler's pantry, wine storage, and a private elevator. But none of that matters to Pandit, who told New York earlier this year that he never got into "the Gordon Gekko idea of Wall Street." He just really, really loved The Odd Couple.

Real-Estate Porn: Behold a Beresford Penthouse

Been shopping for a place on Central Park West? Curbed noticed the listing today for a three-bedroom park-facing duplex penthouse in the famous Beresford, just north of the Museum of Natural History and home to celebrities from Jerry Seinfeld to John MacEnroe. It hasn't been renovated in a while, but it's also only been lightly used: The current owner is apparently an Indian media mogul who only stays there two weeks a year. (It seems it's good to be an Indian media mogul.) The price tag: a mere $28 million. Hey, maybe it can be your uptown pied-à-terre. (Curbed has floorplans, too.)
