• It looks like Jann Wenner has finally given up his stake in the Upper West Side townhouse that he shared with Jane Wenner up until their marriage dissolved in the mid-'90s. (The Rolling Stone founder and publisher now resides with his longtime partner, Matt Nye.) Property records show that Jane paid Jann $4 million for his share of the five-story townhouse at 37 West 70th Street, which the couple jointly purchased from the estate of Perry Ellis back in 1987.

• Carol McFadden, the social fixture whose husband George was killed in a plane crash in 2008, has closed on the sale of her penthouse at The Metropolitan on East 90th Street. Nearly a year and a half after first listing the home for $8.9 million, the full-floor spread has been sold to Stewart Satter, the CEO of Consumer Testing Laboratories, for $6.925 million. That's about $1 million less than what Carol and her late husband paid for the place back in 2004. [Cityfile, Corcoran]
• Could Courtney Love be planning to buy a West Village townhouse? That's the rumor, since she was reportedly spotted checking out a townhouse at 56 Bank Street that is currently on the market for $5.998 million. [Curbed, BHS]
