Tech Weenie Sells Prince St. Pad to Model for $1.41 M.

transfers ntrunfiojgomes1v Tech Weenie Sells Prince St. Pad to Model for $1.41 M. There’s now one less Internet millionaire in Nolita, but two more brunet waifs to take his place. Jeffrey Dachis, whose old tech consulting firm Razorfish just went to Microsoft as part of a $6 billion deal, has sold his three-bedroom apartment at 14 Prince Street to the Australian model (and reality TV star) Nicole Trunfio. The 22-year-old, who conquered a season of Australia’s Search for a Supermodel five years ago, paid $1.41 million.

One floor down, her friend, countrywoman and fellow Vogue face Jessica Gomes got a 553-square-foot place from Mr. Dachis for $810,000, according to public records.

“They decided they both had to have apartments in the building,” listing broker Julie Pham at the Corcoran Group said. “It was good luck. They thought the units were just so cute.”

Mr. Dachis never lived in either co-op, cuteness aside. “I had the top penthouse apartment,” he said, referring to two top-floor units that have since been sold for a total of $2.821 million. They were uncombined, so all four of his units in the building were separate.

Mr. Dachis co-founded the digital strategy and design firm Bond Art and Science last year, and in 2000 he was named New York’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. He was featured in a Crain’s rising star feature back then, which (deferentially) called Mr. Dachis “the very embodiment of high-tech hubris.”

Now he owns two floors and 3,652 square feet at 5 Harrison Street in TriBeCa, which cost $4 million.

His model buyers will fit in snugly on Prince. “I remember them saying they liked being there—the really cute shops and restaurants. And they had other friends there,” the broker said.

Mr. Dachis had rented out Ms. Trunfio’s new apartment to three fresh-out-of-college Wall Street guys.

“I’d be showing the apartments knowing there was a pile of disgusting dishes in the sink,” said Ms. Pham, speaking from the South of France. “I would beg my buyers to please look past this.”

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.
