The Upper East Side duplex that Jane Holzer, the socialite and art collector best known as Andy Warhol’s “Baby Jane,” sold for $14.1 million during the recession is coming back on the market for $23.5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal, in a sign that at least some people are confident about a high-end Manhattan market comeback. Holzer, who sold the five-bedroom apartment at 23 East 74th Street’s the Volney in Feburary 2009, had originally asked $22.5 million when she listed it in June 2008. She eventually cut the asking price to $16.9 million before selling it at a 37 percent discount from the original to apparel mogul Jason Rabin and his wife, Nicole, who paid in cash. Now, the Rabins are moving to Hong Kong, and they’ve enlisted a Brown Harris Stevens team of Anne and Amanda Young and Jarrod Randolph to help market the spread. [WSJ]
