unlce junior middle finger 0 In Deed! A Storage King Trades a Rising Star; Trump Heritage; Russell & Katy & Steve Bing; Uncle Junior Whacks — Believe it or not, the storage business is big money. Maybe it’s because everybody has tiny apartments. But not Nicholas Coslov, who just bought at 2,013-square-foot apartment in The Olcott at palindromic 27 West 72nd Street. Mr. Coslov and his wife Nicole spent $3.4 million of those hard-earned storage bucks — he is the CEO of Storage Deluxe — on this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath spread, which they bought from Haejin Baek, who is in charge of Commercial Real Estate Capital Markets at Barclays Capital. Ms. Baek made the top of Institutional Investor’s 2006 real estate Rising Stars list.

 — Roger Holstein, a manager at private equity house Vestar, has just landed a beauty of a duplex at the Trump Heritage, the northernmost building at Donald Trump’s Riverside South complex. The price was a cool $6 million, down from $7.5 million as of last May. Located in the building’s curving northern half, the duplex boasts expansive Hudson River views and a 180-square-foot walk-in closet for the master bedroom. There are four bedchambers in total and an equal number of bathrooms. A spectacular double-height living room looks out onto the 60-foot terrace on the lower level.

 — As the Post reported Saturday, Russell Brand and his Elmo-taunting squeeze Katy Perry bought a Tribeca condo at 65 North Moore Street. The couple paid $2.68 million for the top-floor duplex, according to city records, where the buyers are listed as, among others, Hollywood big Steve Bing. Will they be sharing the crash pad/tax haven (the Post alleges the latter was the purpose of the purchase).

 — Make him an offer he can’t refuse! The Observer‘s favorite tabloid — besides us! — is reporting that actor Dominic Chianese, best known for playing Uncle Junior on The Sopranos, has whacked 250Gs off his East 89th Street two-bedroom co-op, for a current ask of $1.9 Million. Throw in another $550,000 and the upstairs one-bedroom can be yours, too.

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.
