Nepotism won't get you everywhere: Robert De Niro has a son who happens to be an Elliman broker and happens to be the listing agent for the actor's townhouse at 14 Saint Luke's Place, which has been in the family for over 30 years. It hit the market this summer for $14 million and is now shedding a few post-Thanksgiving pounds with a new pricetag of $11,995,000. The 22-foot-wide 1852 Italianate townhouse has five bedrooms over five floors, a "secluded" private garden, plus a private terrace off the master suite. And now we know that the lack of interior photos speaks not just to De Niro's celebrity, but the recommendation that a "full renovation [is] required."
