Aby Rosen's 45-foot-wide townhouse at 22 East 71st Street hit the market in April 2008 asking $75 million. And that was for a fixer-upper, since part of the building (for which Rosen paid $15.65 million in 2004) has been used as offices for years. But Rosen held fast on pricing through the bust, refusing two offers of over $60 million. So the Chopper's visit must have been something of a surprise! The 22,000-square-foot mansion is now $59,000,000?which actually works out to only 21 percent off. Suddenly within your price range? Stroll through the old photo gallery.
