998 Fifth Avenue put the "Gold" in Gold Coast by luring the Guggenheims and Vanderbilts away from townhouse living. It keeps the gold in the Gold Coast with jewelry safes in the walls of every apartment. Still, it isn't always easy for those apartments to sell, and one that's had particular trouble is the 5,000-square-foot maisonette. (The unit also has the private address of 999 Fifth Avenue.) It started out asking $24 million and PriceChopped all the way down to $19 million. After a seven-month break from the market, it has a fresh listing for $22 million. The latest set of listing pics is in the gallery above.
