Oil Billionaire’s Daughter Parts With 956 Fifth Co-op for $6.25 M.

956fifth Oil Billionaires Daughter Parts With 956 Fifth Co op for $6.25 M.When Manhattan real estate was at its bleakest late last year, there were a few weeks when it genuinely seemed that the only New Yorkers buying up expensive apartments were the brood of billionaires: Sheridan Mitchell Lorenz (daughter of a Texas natural-gas billionaire), Alice R. Gottesman (daughter of a Warren Buffett pal) and Roy Judelson (son of a Gulf & Western founder) spent nearly $20 million on three apartments; Pittsburgh billionaire Henry Hillman’s grandson Talbott Lea Simonds spent $16.5 million on an East 91st Street townhouse; and Turkish billionaire Husnu Ozyegin’s son Murat (a Bear Stearns veteran) spent $6.2 million on an East 66th Street sprawl.

Finally, a billionaire’s child has decided to sell something off. According to city records, Anne Chandler Bass—the daughter of oil/aerospace/media magnate Robert M. Bass, the 62nd richest man in the nation—has sold her six-room co-op at 956 Fifth Avenue for $6.25 million. On the downside, her asking price had been $7 million.

The listing with Stribling says Ms. Bass’ corner living room had a wood-burning fireplace, her floor plan had “a fabulous flow for entertaining,” and her master bedroom had “en-suite his/her baths and dressing room.” But, most importantly by far, there was a mahogany-paneled butler’s pantry and wet bar.

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.
