If the dim lighting in some of the above photos induces some feelings of emptiness, well, that would be fitting for the townhouse's history. This is 54 East 64th Street, which has held starring roles as the former home of the New York Observer, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, and a somewhat troubled investment of Derek Quinlan. After selling late last year for $20 million (Quinlan had been asking $25M), the property is on the market again, the Journal reports. This time CBRE is marketing the house without a specific asking price?considering what happened last time, probably a good move. The expected price is once again somewhere around $20 million, and potential buyers include foundations, foreign governments, or very rich persons.
