Mets’ David Wright Closes on Manhattan Penthouse

New York Mets All-Star David Wright has closed on a Manhattan penthouse spread for a cool $6 million, according to city records. The closing date was August 23.

The Observer’s Max Abelson broke the news back in December that Mr. Wright had gone to contract on the 4,100-square-foot penthouse at Infinity Flats, a condo development at 21st Street and Broadway. The listing price for the apartment was $6.5 million, but a source told Abelson that the third baseman was getting a slight discount.

That discount now looks to be about $500,000. Oh, the cachet that comes with being a baseball player in New York City these days.
