In a last-minute effort to prove 2010 the year of the short sale after all comes #PH1M at Battery Park City's 21 South End Avenue. The apartment, which boasts high ceilings and water views, first hit the market in September 2009 asking $750,000, and it had chopped all the way down to $625,000 by June. As of today, it has raised its price, to $672,384. That's the kind of optimism we like to see going into a new year! Even if, after more than a year languishing on the market, it feels slightly misplaced.
