— Once jauntily referred to as “the baron of bad tidings” by the Los Angeles Times, Hollywood strategic communication magnate Michael Sitrick has spent $4.225 million on an apartment at 980 Fifth Avenue, one of the most exclusive addresses in the city. Mr. Sitrick’s new home is on Central Park and overlooks the Met.
— Nicholas J. Munafo III, president of Shiseido, the oldest cosmetics company in the world and also apparently the first importer of seltzer to Japan, has bought a $1,649,565 million apartment at 305 East 85th Street. Also listed on the deed is Joseph Guigliano Jr., associate vice president of Cartier. The well-accessorized pair will have the golden opportunity to “recreate” in the building’s designated Wii room.
