The fourth time was the charm, at least when talking about price cuts on Hal Prince's Duplex on the 13th and 14th floors of 834 Fifth Avenue. After being initially listed at $33 million, then down to $29.5 million, followed by a cut to $27.5 million and then finally $24.9 million back in November of 2010 it finally sold. Brown Harris Stevens broker Ann Jeffrey declined to comment but we know the place sold for more than $23,000,000 and there was even a bidding war. The building didn't make the job any easier for Prince, having an unusually strict co-op board that typically prefers billionaires. In fact, some would go so far as to call it New York's grandest building. With this coming on the heels of the $36 million sale in the building, the high end market is looking pretty damn good.
