A tipster directed our attention to this heavily-discounted listing for a 3-bedroom in ultra-posh 50 Gramercy Park North, down to $5.2 million from its original $6,500,000 ask. A little digging reveals the 2,151-square-foot sixth floor apartment as #6A, the did-he-or-didn't-he pad bought by Karl Lagerfeld in 2006, maybe/maybe not ever lived in, perhaps/perhaps not put up for sale last winter. StreetEasy listing was just updated with the $1.3 million price cut, and it shows that the unit was officially listed at the end of July, five months after the original Hot Karl assured the masses he wasn't abandoning his Gramercy perch.
