Sting and Bruce Willis sell Central Park West duplexes

Musician Sting and actor Bruce Willis have each said goodbye for now to Central Park West, after selling sprawling duplexes there.

The sales were among Manhattan's priciest residential closings last month, according to New York City property records.

Sting's transaction, at US$50 million (S$66.7 million), was by far the most expensive. He sold a penthouse on the 16th and 17th floors of 15 Central Park West.

The duplex at 271 Central Park West sold by Willis closed at its US$17.75 million list price.
