But the bathrooms were faithfully original, one in sunshine gold and black tile, the other in a seafoam green and black tile. Below is the view you would have enjoyed:
The penthouse was listed on the 16th of this month at $9500 per month. Two days ago, it was re-listed at $8500. Apparently that did the trick.
