That's a not-insignificant markdown from the original asking price of $9.9 million. The Kahns?whose current home, a Time Warner Center condo, was recently PriceChopped from $33,689,000 to $29,750,000?are probably an easy approval for even a skittish co-op board. Did that earn them the $1.9M discount? The seller is recorded, awesomely, as the United States of America. So which one of us was the pushover at the negotiating table?
