After two-plus years on the market and three price chops, the sixth floor of 521 Park Avenue has finally sold for $17.45 million. The Observer reports that the zoologically-bedecked pad was owned by Gordon Dyal, co-chairman of Goldman Sachs' investment banking division, and his wife Jillian, and they originally listed it in April 2012 for $23.5 million. Three price cuts brought the final ask down to $17.85 million, but it closed for even less, $17.45 million. The unit was renovated in 2010, but some of the decor might have deterred buyersthere is a ram's head mounted on the wall and not-faux-looking zebra print. The 4,500-square-foot home has three bedrooms, a walnut-paneled game room, and a 35-foot-long, limestone-clad entry gallery.
