Slow News Day: Jimmy Breslin Buys a Condo

From The Real Deal: “Legendary New York journalist Jimmy Breslin and his wife, former City Council member Ronnie Eldridge, paid $1.65 million for an apartment in the troubled Kent Swig condominium conversion Sheffield57, south of Columbus Circle. The purchase at the 58-story tower at 322 West 57th Street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, closed on December 8, according to property records published Friday.”
