Given the prestigious title of “Super Doctor”  by The New York Times, Dr. Hecht doesn’t confine himself to the gridiron but also offers his spinal services to the Islanders.

Dr. Hecht paid $3.6 million for an 11th floor co-op. The sellers, a Mr. Kenneth Citron and Ms. Leslie Citron, bought the pad back in 2004 for $2.45 million.

Details about the property are few and far between. Perhaps Dr. Hecht wants to keep his playbook close to his vest. The neighborhood is a primary draw to the classic pre-war building. Just a few feet from Central Park, Dr. Hecht can throw the old pigskin around (O.K.—we’ll stop) with his family whenever he so desires. In a listing for another apartment in the building, a broker notes that “the area, of course, provides all the amenities of a sophisticated New York lifestyle.”
