In the midst of the current real estate craze, it sometime seems that buyers are closing deals on apartments that they’ve scarcely had a chance to tour, let alone examine carefully. But West Coast-based interior designer Waldo Fernandez definitely had ample opportunity to consider (and re-consider) the contract he signed on a two-bedroom co-op at 69 Washington Place.
The sun-filled spread, which music producer and D.J. Mark Ronson bought for $1.8 million from real estate chronicler extraordinaire Michael Gross in 2006, entered contract way back in March 2012. Many, many months later, the deal has finally closed, and we hear, for Mr. Ronson’s $1.99 million asking price (the sale has yet to hit records). Douglas Elliman broker Raphael De Niro, who spent the last year and a half slogging through a seemingly interminable closing, declined to comment on the sale.

And as electronic rockers Phantogram left the stage of Symmetry Live—the W New York-Downtown’s music concert series—we asked him.
When we think of Versace we think of couture. We think of cutting-edge design that costs us more than our annual paycheck. We think…H&M? That’s right: last night Donatella Versace unveiled her line of disposable affordable fashion for the retailer at Pier 57 in meatpacking district.
High-low style is taken for granted in this age of Target capsule collections, but it still seems to inspire a certain amount of aren’t-we-wacky winking. Hence the barbecue/carnival/home cookin’ theme of Thursday night’s party honoring designer Charlotte Ronson’s “I [Heart] Ronson” line for J. C. Penney.
