Welcome back to Chopper Holdouts, a feature where we delve into the world of listings that time forgot. Any suggestions? Send them to the tipline.

While putting ridiculously lavish properties on the market for absurdly huge amounts money is basically a rich person sport on the Upper East Side, it's a more dangerous game downtown, where something as simple as a miscalculated view line or ugly neighbors can doom even the shiniest and glassiest of condos to linger on the market for years on end. Here now, five downtown listings that have been around for a while and don't seem to be going anywhere any time soon.

1. 52 Laight Street

52 Laight Street
New York, NY 10013

This isn't the first modern penthouse in Tribeca to have more than a bit of trouble finding a buyer. Unlike the penthouse in 16 Warren Street, however, this one's price has gone in the wrong direction. After it was listed for $5.5 million in 2011, it climbed to almost $7 million before it was chopped to $6.3 million in October.

2. 350 West Broadway

350 West Broadway's penthouse finally found a buyer after four years and a number of pricechops. No such luck for the sixth floor, which is still available for purchase, now asking $7.495 million (down from $8.95 million.) That's still kind of a lot for a 2BR, though.

3. 60 Warren Street

The 10,911-square-foot, five-story penthouse perched on top of 60 Warren Street Street is a pretty unique place, so in some ways it's hard to fault the owner, businessman Edward Bazinet, for waiting for the right buyer to come along. He's proven more than willing to wait—the place has been on the market since 2006, but less willing to cut the price, which is down to $24.5 million from a starting point of $28.5 million.

4. 15 Union Square West

15 Union Square West
New York, NY 10003

This third-floor 2BR in the 15 Union Square West, the former Tiffany & Co. building converted into a glass-wrapped condo tower, has endure years of minor price fluctuations since it was listed for $5.291 million in 2008. The ask as of today: $5.295 million. That ought to do it.

5. 32 Orchard Street

32 Orchard Street
New York, NY 10002

This little Chinatown townhouse has been looking for a development-minded buyer since 2010. It's also looking for $6 million, though, up from $5.2 million when it was first listed.
