What's a roomy 3,100-square-foot three-bedroom overlooking Central Park doing lingering on the market with two pricechops to its name? Unit #18B at 860 Fifth Avenue started at a whopping $19,900,000 back in April, got reduced to $16,995,000 this summer, and is now asking 12% less than that at $14,995,000. It's got terraces (plural!), marble, herringbone wood floors, a windowed chef's kitchen, and a library of fine mahogany. Even foreign buyers and pied-a-terres are allowed, though be warned: maintenance on this puppy is $7,000 a month.
Here's one guess on the 'chop: the 1950 white-brick post-war building is no competitor to the Gilded Age townhouses and limestone facades of its neighbors a little further north on Central Park. To make up for it, the building is amenitied to the gills ("garage, bicycle room, storage, garden, rooftop deck, fitness room, common storage and a wine cellar" and even pets, if you agree to a dog interview).
