When the prime minister of Qatar wanted to buy one of the late copper heiress Huguette Clark's apartments at 907 Fifth Avenue, the co-op board wasn't thrilled by the size of his security entourage and family (2 wives, 15 kids) and his application was denied. But when Wall Street "wunderkind" Boaz Weinstein, the guy on the other side of the $2B J.P. Morgan trading loss, and his wife came along and wanted to buy another, they were quick to be approved. An insider suggests that the board probably liked the fact that "they are a lovely family. A lovely, rich family." Sale price: $25.5M. [Curbed NY]
