Musician Sting's apartment at 88 Central Park West has sold for $17.75 million, a 29 percent decrease from its original 2006 listing price of $24.9 million with the late Linda Stein, the Observer reported. The four-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot apartment -- recorded in city records under Sting's real name, Gordon Sumner -- was sold to Michael Naify. Sting originally bought the property from crooner Billy Joel in the 1980s. Before the apartment went into contract a few months ago, Halstead Property's Mark Friedman had it listed for $19 million.
