'The deal of the century': Sixers owner Josh Harris buys house for just $45 million

Joshua Harris, the billionaire owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils, just bought a home for $45 million. The price was actually 40 percent lower than the original asking price. According to New York Real Estate site The Real Deal, one insider called this purchase “the deal of the century.”

Co-founder of Apollo Global Management, Harris purchased the Sixers in 2011 for $280 million, which has turned out to be a tremendous investment given that Forbes latest valuation in February was $800 million.

Now, about this ridiculous house. Located at 50 E 69th Street in the Upper East Side in Manhattan, this massive 21,070 square-foot, seven-level, townhouse was built in 1926 for Otto Louis Dommerich, who ran his father’s international cotton business. It boasts 14 marble fireplaces, three elevators and 3,350 square-feet of outdoor space.

The location was once used as the site for the Center for Specialty Care, a luxury medical facility, but can be reconfigured as a single-family home.

The monthly taxes are listed at $28,386 for a yearly total of $340,632.

Here’s a look inside this amazing piece of architecture.

Pick some PPA violations and we'll tell you which Philly athlete you are

Is there anything more Philly than a Philadelphia Parking Authority violation? 

There is no greater sadness than walking out to your car, spotting that slim white and blue envelope on the front window from the distance, and just knowing it signifies: they got you. 

To those of us whom have fought this long battle, we salute you. While the PPA may have temporarily suspended some of their violations, we know it's only a matter of time before they emerge back and stronger than ever.

So, we've decided to create this handy little quiz for you to determine your Philly athelete personality, depending on the type of violation you will likely recieve next.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.
