Ex-Lehmanite Sells at 15 CPW for $7.1 M.

When David Bizer paid a cool $5.3 million for his apartment at acclaim-famed 15 Central Park West in December of 2007, he worked for Lehman Brothers, because, well, it still existed. Now, more than two years and one fallen former employer later, Mr. Bizer has sold his high-floor two-bedroom for $7.1 million (he now works at Nomura, a popular Lehman refuge where he occupies the title of Global Head of Fixed Income Securities).

According to city records, Mr. Bizer sold the park-view apartment to a Thomas Neslein, who also, strangely enough, appears to have bought another Central Park West condo (a little farther north, at 279 CPW) just three months ago for $4.2 million. What is Mr. Neslein doing with all this park-front property? The mystery abounds.

Though it’s easy to understand why one would have trouble resisting Mr. Bizer’s “stunning” apartment at the Grace Kelly of condos.  Listed by Corcoran‘s Robert Browne, the 24th-floor spread includes hardwood oak floors, 11-foot ceilings and “oversized” floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and master bedroom, to maximize those coveted park views.
