While New York City’s 56.1 inches of snow so far this season has almost certainly kept many five-borough buyers indoors and away from open houses, the same can be said for high-end shoppers in Connecticut and the Midwest, according to Curbed. As previously reported, Aby Rosen’s 21,000-square-foot townhouse saw its price slashed to $50 million in November 2010, a far cry from the $75 million asking price the mansion at 22 East 71st Street originally had. Elsewhere, a Southington, Conn. home is hoping buyers will slog through the snow for its $1.3 million spread, which includes a billiards room and numerous fireplaces. And, in Tulsa, Okla., which was hit with 13.2 inches of snow Tuesday, a single-day record for the city, a 17,000-square-foot mansion is searching for a buyer to meet its $9 million price tag. [Curbed]
