Denzel Buys at 15 C.P.W.

washington denzel Denzel Buys at 15 C.P.W.

So Denzel Washington has apparently given up on the idea of living in a church-turned-condominium, and has grabbed an apartment at 15 Central Park West, according to the Wall Street Journal. (And it’s nice that The Journal is free this week so we can actually link to their stuff).

Mr. Washington’s 3,000-square-foot pad includes three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a terrace (facing the park).

And how is 15 C.P.W. stacking up against the nearby Time Warner Center in terms of early sales? Pretty good, if you ask a Zeckendorf:

At the Central Park West condo, two-thirds of its 200 units have received signed binding contracts since going on sale in September, its developer, Zeckendorf Development, says. In comparison, the nearby Time Warner Center took four years, until March, to sell its 201 units.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
