One Upper East Side co-op lets a few units go at a discount, and suddenly Manhattan's Gold Coast is just falling apart. The Observer brings word that, after nearly two years on the market, Palm Beach mall magnate Murray H. Goldman has finally found a buyer for his 960 Fifth Avenue spread. But oh, what he had to give up to get there. The place was initially listed for $32.5 million, but by the time it went into the contract, the price had been chopped all the way down to $22 million. Of course, Goldman paid only $1.41 million for the apartment in the 1980s. But outfitting one's dogs in suits is such a pricey endeavor these days.
