Original Asking: $6.25 million
New Asking: $4.5 million
You Save! $1.75 million
Here's a broker unfraid to trumpet a massive price cut: "PRICE SLASHED 1.5 MILLION DOLLARS!!!" begins the listing description. That's not the whole story, though. Notes a tuned-in Curbed reader, "The broker says price was reduced $1.5 Million, but in fact he understates this. It came on the market originally at $6.25 million back in April or so, was soon reduced to $6 million, and is now selling for $4.5 million. Why the great price for the 3000 sf condo with 1500 sf terrace 1 block from Central Park and 2 blocks from Lincoln Center? Look at the pics (stage lighting in the living room) and the floorplan (for a "discerning" buyer)." The floorplan is indeed a corker; take a peek after the jump.
