Kraft, Murdoch, and Putin.

The New York Post reports that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft–famous for giving his Super Bowl ring to Vladimir Putin–is buying at the The Plaza. However, there’s no word yet on the specifics of his apartment. Regardless, Mr. Kraft will join some elite company: Bear Stearns chief James Cayne, Formula One’s Flavio Briatore, and developer Harry Macklowe (who’s buying two units).

Also, jewelry designer David Yurman is buying a $3.125 million apartment to add to his triplex. And, Haley Lieberman Binn–wife of Niche Media head, Jason Binn–is leaving Stribling for the Corcoran Group.
