Amid all the outrageous flip attempts, and unreasonably priced listings a beacon of light emerges from Flatiron. The second floor of 35 West 23rd Street is simply a very nice apartment—and it knows it. Listed a few days ago for $4,200,000, it went ahead and upped its ask yesterday to $4,500,000 because why not. The 3,500-square-foot 3BR, 2.5BA pad's highlight is almost certainly the enormous living room, with a wall of windows facing 23rd Street, 14 foot ceilings, exposed brick, a fireplace, cast iron columns, and wood ceiling beams. And the north-facing terrace doesn't look too bad either.
