Def Jam founder Russell Simmons had a very hard time selling his 11th-floor penthouse at 114 Liberty Street, to the point where he decided not to sell it at all. (Hey, where else would he get three terraces, two eat-in kitchens, and 40 windows?) But the 114 Liberty Curse seems to apply only to Simmons: the ninth-floor loft has sold and resold three times since 1998, always rising in price. Can it keep up the streak with its latest attempt? It's listed for $6.39 million. Window count: 29. Closet count: 10. Check the brokers' numbers in the gallery above.
