On the Market: Brooke Astor's $46M Park Avenue Duplex

New, 28 comments

The Kentucky Derby may have been run over the weekend, but the real race is just getting underway. Once the jockey was selected we knew it was just a matter of time, and now the starting gun has fired and the gates have flung open (ctrl + alt + endmetaphor). Late grand dame Brooke Astor's legendary 778 Park Avenue duplex has hit the market at a $46 million asking price. Corcoran's Leighton Candler has the task of selling the 5BR, 5.5BA apartment on Floors 15-16, which is just above the full-floor spread recently purchased by rich guy William Lauder for $27.5 million. Surprisingly, the listing has several photos and complete floorplan pornage, and the apartment looks exactly like what you'd expect a classic Park Avenue duplex owned by a 4,000-year-old socialite to look like. We wouldn't pay a dime over $38.5 million, but that's just us.
