The 48th floor penthouse at 1555 North Astor has just listed with wacky decor and faux vintage finishes intact. The condo claims 360 degree views, paneled living room and library, stained glass windows, eye-gouging curtains and carpeting, eat-in kitchen with terra cotta floors, and a bar. A cabal of figurines — mostly soldiers and waiters — must help keep the loneliness at bay when marooned atop the skyline. The place is big enough — 2,900 square feet — for the average family but, perversely, small enough for a loaded individual's pied-à-terre. Gotta love it! The initial asking price is $1.9M with assessments of $2,373/month.
