$9 M. Mortgage at Fifteen Central Park West

Not every buyer at Fifteen Central Park West, the development du anneé, has ready cash to put down. Evelyne and Arthur Estey, recent buyers of Unit 7D, took out a $9 million mortgage to help pay for their $16.85 million condo, according to city records.

Both Mr. and Ms. Estey, of Bedford, NY, have raised funds for Yale (Mr. Estey is a ’78 alum). And when he donated money to a Republican congressional candidate last year, Mr. Estey listed his occupation as a managing director at Lehman Brothers. We couldn’t find a record of him at the firm now, though.
