There are a few potential record-setters of the NYC real estate world still seeking occupants, but there's always room for another, no? Here now, PH17-18 at 785 Fifth Avenue, home of songwriter (and Marc Rich ex-wife) Denise Rich and newly on the market for $65 million. That price makes it the city's most expensive co-op. Rich is selling, she tells the Post, because "I don't have the need for this type of space"?even if she did once need to convert one of the terraces into a figure-skating rink for a party. Don't we all?
