Ex-Credit Suisse broker Julian Tzolov went on the lam in 2009 to avoid going on trial for fraud. (He was sentenced this year.) At the time, he was under house arrest at an apartment in 225 Fifth Avenue?an apartment that, we learn via a StreetEasy thread, is going up for auction on November 17. Tzolov paid $1,985,587 for the 2BR, 2.5BA condo in 2007, and it now has a suggested minimum bid of $1.9 million. The buyer gets to keep all of what we assume are Tzolov's custom furnishings, plus his stereo/TV system, motorized remote-controlled shades, in-unit washer and dryer, and private storage space elsewhere in the building. The auction site has only a few shots inside the unit. Anyone planning on placing a bid?
