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.
