Valuables stolen from luxury NYC apartments following Sandy evacuations

What a bunch of “Gold” diggers!

Stealthy thieves swiped valuables from luxury apartments at ritzy 2 Gold St. in the Financial District after residents there were forced to vacate because of Hurricane Sandy, The Post has learned.

The looters slinked into the empty pads at the 52-story high-rise and stole pricey watches, bundles of cash, a cherished baseball collection and assorted jewelry after the building was left without power — and, therefore, had no working security cameras to record the capers, law-enforcement sources said.

In each incident, there were no signs of forced entry or unlocked doors, the sources said. The building’s management firm, TF Cornerstone, had given workers keys to the tower’s 839 units in order to clean rotting food from refrigerators and for safety inspections.

“They took 15 [of my] baseballs autographed by the best Yankees still living,” said furious resident Chris Mirabile, founder of hotlist.com, a popular social-planning app. “It was a Christmas gift last year from an investor. It had a lot of sentimental value and, obviously, financial value.”

The collection included balls signed by such pinstriped greats as Yogi Berra, Derek Jeter, Reggie Jackson, Don Mattingly, Whitey Ford and Mariano Rivera and was kept in a wooden case. Also stolen was Mirabile’s $12,000 Rolex.
