New York, New York (July 12, 2007) Gary Barnett, president of Extell Development Company, announced that sales at 995 Fifth Avenue are exceptionally strong with over 50% of the residences sold. According to Barnett, “The opening of the model residences galvanized sales at 995 Fifth. Once prospective purchasers come into the building and experience these extraordinary residences, they immediately envision themselves living there.”

The 26 residences at 995 Fifth Avenue range from 4,100 – 8,400 square feet and include a grand, top-floor, 7,000 square foot penthouse with outdoor terrace of 5,000 square feet featuring dramatic views of Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Highlights of the 995 Fifth homes include elegant entry galleries, expansive living rooms, formal dining rooms, butler’s pantries and grand, master bedroom suites.

Beth Fisher, Senior Marketing Director for Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, the exclusive sales and marketing agent for 995 Fifth Avenue remarked, “It is a privilege to offer homes of the caliber of 995 Fifth. Not only is it a rare opportunity to own a classic, Fifth Avenue, pre-war building with state-of-the-art infrastructure but 995 Fifth owners also enjoy co-op ownership with features and benefits of a condominium residence.

Fisher continued, “With its premier location, arguably among the best residential addresses in the world, choice of custom finishes of the finest materials and superb amenities such as the private La Palestra Health and Wellness Center, 995 Fifth has strongly resonated with purchasers. Financially savvy, our buyers recognize the great appreciation a property of this caliber generates.”

To assist potential owners in envisioning their modern-day Fifth Avenue lifestyle, designer Eric Cohler designed two stunning model residences representing two half-floor homes incorporating up-to-date appointments and state of the art technology. For each, Cohler has applied a distinct perspective, one traditional and the other contemporary, for every room.

Centered within the exclusive enclave of Upper East Side at 81st Street and Fifth Avenue, 995 Fifth Avenue is brilliantly situated at the nexus of New York culture and history surrounded by renowned museums, international boutiques, fine restaurants and elite private schools.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
