An apartment in the Plaza Hotel just sold for $48 million, which is the highest price ever paid for a single condo in New York, Bloomberg reports.The record-setting pad is 6,000-square-foot and now belongs to a Russian composer called Igor Krutoy and his wife, Olga.

Their new unit is on the 12th floor, and “while it has sweeping views of Central Park, it is not even a full-floor unit,” the New York Post reported.

According to Curbed, the couple “picked up the place after a rather epic hunt that also included 15 Central Park West and the Time Warner centre.”
