Pretty much anything in 834 Fifth Avenue--New York's grandest building, you see--qualifies as floorplan porn. As the Observer did so well to observe, the 14-story, 24-apartment co-op building designed by "regal uptown architect" Rosario Candela have units with all manner of "mahogany doors and plaster moldings, plus unique and Platonically perfect floor plans." In typical white-glove real estate fashion, we the people are not (yet!) privy to interior shots of the behemoth #3/#4C, on the market with Brown Harris Stevens for $27,500,000. Despite 834's mythic stature, sales waffle between the wow ($36 million for a unit in February) and the whimper (Hal Prince's heavily pricechopped unit sold for almost $10 million less than its initial $33 million ask).
