"Note the octopus chandelier with shells holding the lights," writes the tipster who nominated this listing at 340 West 55th Street for That's Rather Hideous status. Duly noted. Also noted: the fact that the 1BR, 2BA co-op (with a floorplan for a potential 2BR conversion that provides a sliver of a second bedroom) has been on the market for 166 days. It's now asking $875,000, after a $23,000 price trim seven weeks ago. So what's the 800 pound gorilla in the room here? It might be the, er, actual gorilla in the room.
