When New York Jets owner Woody Johnson sold his apartment last month for a cool $77.5 million to Ukranian billionaire Leonard Blavatnik, he set the record for the largest-ever sale of a New York city co-op. 

The five-bedroom apartment at Fifth Avenue and 64th Street in Manhattan beat out the last record sale, a mere $71.2 million transaction made last year, according to The New York Times

Johnson left behind a two-story residence in a building that Bing Crosby once called home. 

The residence's monthly maintenance bill was $22,801. What is he fixing in there?

Now, if he and the Jets could just start setting some records on the field, then we'd really have something here.
