#14/15A in 35 Prospect Park West, a 1929 Emery Roth-designed co-op building, just became the most expensive individual apartment on the market in Park Slope, again, when it was listed for $4.5 million. The eleven-room, 6BR/5.5BA residence certainly looks the part—located on the second highest floor of the neighborhood's preeminent co-op building, it features an enormous foyer, paneled library, and wood-burning fireplaces in both the living and dining rooms, as well as sweeping Prospect Park views. This is, however, not its first foray onto the market in recent years. Originally listed in 2008 for $4.125 million, it was most recently priced at $3.5 million before it was taken off the market in September of 2011. It's also not the first 35 Prospect Park West apartment to experience a precipitous price drop (although it might be the first one to just call for a do-over). Two years ago, another, smaller duplex a few floors lower sold for $2.85 million after being first priced, incredibly, at $4.95 million. They certainly don't lack ambition, these 35 Prospect Park West duplexes.
