Location, location, location.

Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld and Tommy Rosenfeld’s townhouse is situated at the edge of one of Brooklyn’s iconic parks. Their recently purchased condo is situated at the edge of Brooklyn’s other iconic park.

We’ll tell you about the condo first.

The married couple recently paid $10,248,024 for an apartment at Pierhouse, the new development in Brooklyn Bridge Park, city Finance Department records indicate.

The townhouse they own is at 18 Prospect Park West in the Park Slope Historic District. The neo-Italian Renaissance limestone house, which was designed by famous late 19th-century architect Montrose Morris, faces Prospect Park.

They bought it for $3.75 million in 2004, Finance Department records show.

By the way, Goodstein-Rosenfeld is a film director, writer and producer. Her 2012 period drama “Mighty Fine” starred Chazz Palminteri and Andie MacDowell.


The Ingrassias still own the priciest Pierhouse condo

The couple’s Pierhouse pad is one of the most expensive homes that has been sold at Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital Group’s condo-plus-hotel development since closings began many months ago.

There are two condo buildings located at 90 and 130 Furman St. with a combined total of 106 residential units. And 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge — which has a rooftop bar with superb sunset views — is located at 60 Furman St.

The Pierhouse development generated legal controversy about whether it blocks part of the protected view plane between Brooklyn Heights’ Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge.

We’ve been writing about condo closings at Pierhouse since last winter.

At this point, the priciest purchase that has closed was made by Brooklyn Heights couple Timothy and Stephanie Ingrassia.

They paid $10,669,579 for their waterfront apartment, Finance Department records indicate.
