Location: 610 Park Avenue
Lordy, we knew the whole death-of-the-market meme would lead to an interesting exchange of ideas on this newly renovated Park Avenue apartment, which—for what it's worth—is in the same building as Boulud's Daniel restaurant. And it was interesting, to say the least. There was enough venom in the thread to classify it as a WMD, but in terms of guessing prowess, the blue ribbon goes to an anonymous friend down at #21, who wrote rather awesomely: "$10 million and it will sell for close to it, Park Avenue never goes on sale. It's a great apartment for a Russian Billionaire that paid $50 million for a mansion around the corner to house his staff." "Park Avenue never goes on sale" had better be on a T-shirt by the end of the week.
