Judge Judy Buys at the Sherry Netherland

Judith Sheindlin, better known as "Judge Judy," has settled on new digs in Manhattan: She's paid $6.75 million for a two-bedroom co-op at the Sherry Netherland on Fifth Avenue. The no-nonsense ex-judge scored herself a discount, too. The 3,150-square-foot, 11th-floor apartment, which comes with a separate 150-square-foot maid's room on the building's sixth-floor, had been listed for $7.999 million. [Cityfile]
• It's been more than a year since Brooke Astor's Westchester estate, Holly Hill, first went on the market for $12.9 million. Now the price of property has been cut by more than $2 million. The 11,000-square-foot manse, which was recently emptied of Astor's furnishings to save on security and maintenance costs, is currently listed for $10.5 million. [NYDN, Sotheby's]
• Arlene Farkas, the ex-wife of real estate/retail heir Bruce Farkas, has slashed the price of her 14-room duplex at the River House. The five-bedroom, 5.5-bath apartment that Farkas first placed on the market for $15 million in 2008 is now listed for $11 million. [Cityfile, Stribling]
