This 778 Park Avenue duplex where conservative thinker William F. Buckley Jr. lived and, er, thought is kinda the stuff of legend. Now, so is its asking price. The 5,000-square-foot co-op was first asking 24.5 million when it hit the market in 2008. But it came off the market in early 2009. Now it's back up for sale, and into the PriceChopper Hall of Fame, with a new ask of $12 million and Brown Harris Stevens superbroker Paula Del Nunzio running the show. Feel the intellectual history! Or use the gallery above to remind yourself.
