What does it say about the current state of the market when the sort of character actors we'd long associated with new development marketing begin creeping into plain old apartment-for-sale ads? Emails a tipster, "Had to send this one in. Only listing I have ever seen with the residents (or actors) posing for the camera. Are these the 'celebrities' they are referring to in the description of the apartment? Should we know who they are? Too funny."
Per the floorplan, it is indeed a "celebrity penthouse" with wrap-around terraces on every side; asking $4.75 million. (Serious buyers are also allowed to ask for an explanation of what the hell is going on in the family tableau, above upper left.)
· Listing: 215 West 78th Street [Corcoran]
