Brooke Astor’s 778 Park Avenue duplex, near 72nd Street, once listed for an eye-popping $46 million, is now available for $24.9 million after its third price cut, the Daily News reported. Astor’s son, Anthony Marshall, who was convicted last year of stealing from his mother’s estate, has been trying to sell the 15th-floor apartment, which boasts 14 rooms, five fireplaces and six terraces, since Astor died in 2007. It is listed by Stribling & Associates’ Kirk Henckels — the Corcoran Group’s Leighton Candler had the original listing. The price, now nearly 50 percent off of its original, was first cut to $34 million, and then to $29 million last May. [NYDN]
