Sliding home is now slightly less expensive now in the A Building

A reader yesterday sent us a link to the Freshome site, which had a feature on everyone's favorite East Village helical-slide-showcasing duplex penthouse ...


We had almost forgotten about this SliPlex in the A-Building... We wrote about it back in March 2011... turned out that Phil Galfond, a professional poker player, owned this place. In February, The Wall Street Journal reported that the home was for sale with a $3.99 million price tag.


You'd figure any penthouse duplex with a game room, terrace putting green and a giant slide would be snapped up in a hurry around these parts ... Actually, we looked, and found that the place is still on the market — now just $3.699 after a 7 percent price cut on July 27, according to Streeteasy.

You can take a video-slide tour of it over at Curbed.

Who let that photographer into my house?

Doesn't look like a home at all. More like a waiting area for a Swedish film production company or ad agency.

This apartment looks like it from the set of Woody Allens's "Sleeper", Does it come with an Orgasmatron?
