Activist investor buys NY mansion for record $147M | New York Post

Rosenstein will have Jerry Seinfeld, art dealer Larry Gagosian and hedge-fund manager Jim Chanos as neighbors.

Entertainment mogul David Geffen was said to be one of the house hunters who looked at the property before he signed a contract to buy Courtney Sale Ross’ estate on Georgica Pond for $50 million.

The $147 million sale of Browne and Gordon’s home breaks the record set two weeks ago when the 50-acre Copper Beech Farm in Greenwich, Conn., sold for $120 million.

The deal also tops the $103 million Ron Baron paid in 2007 for an undeveloped 40-acre parcel, also on Further Lane, where the billionaire is building a 28,000-square-foot mansion.

All of whom are, I believe, big donors/supporters of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party.

But don’t worry, middle class folks: You can come visit these people.  If they need a sewer cleaned, or a toilet unclogged.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
