Time on market: one day.
Welcome to Miramax Monopoly (and, yes, it’s played with real money). As reported in this column last week, Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of Miramax Films, top, sold his Fifth Avenue penthouse after owning it only two years. (The buyer was not Sharon Stone.) Bob has settled into a rental. Now brother Harvey, bottom, who’s also co-chairman of Miramax, has bought himself a town house. The almost 7,000-square-foot, six-bedroom behemoth is located on the Upper East Side, near Central Park, and is an elegant old fixer-upper. The house was on the market for $3.95 million, and Mr. Weinstein paid the full asking price. But why so far from TriBeCa, where Miramax’s offices are located? Then again, who wants to be seen walking to work when he could get there via limo?
