In Deed! Indian Liquor Tycoon Atop Trump Plaza

— Let the spirits flow, flamboyant Indian liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya has paid $2.4 million for a penthouse in Trump Plaza! New Yorkers unfamiliar with the billionaire’s lavish parties and penchant for buying sports teams may at least remember him as the guy who paid $1.8 million for Ghandi’s belongings at an auction last spring. The Penthouse A at 167 East 61st Street was unlisted, but if the price tag seems a bit modest for the so-called “king of good times,” keep in mind Mr. Mallya reportedly owns at least 26 residences around the globe.

— The doctor is out. Online health gurus Joshua and Marsha Silberstein have sold their apartment at 301 East 87th Street for $1.45 million. Before founding, http://www.HealthGuru.com, beloved by hypochondriacs everywhere, Mr. Silberstein was editor of How To Live Big in Manhattan Without Going Broke. It features useful tips on finding an apartment without a broker, of which the newly homeless couple may perhaps now avail themselves.
