This two-bedroom, six-bath condo at 50 Central Park South chopped $10,000,000 off its asking price, to $29,500,000. 


In RealtyHop’s latest monthly price drop report for New York City we see most of the same neighborhoods represented among the top five largest price drops as last month’s inaugural report, with the exception of the Upper West Side, which replaces the West Village. 

The report zeros in on neighborhoods with the highest total number of price cuts, as well as the biggest percentage drop in median price, and biggest median price drop. 

The neighborhood with the most price cuts in May was Turtle Bay-East Midtown, which saw a total of 210. The top five addresses with the deepest price drops by dollar amount are all in Manhattan—which makes sense considering the high prices for apartments there. This month the top address is also on the list of the biggest price cuts by percentage of total price.

The top addresses in dollar value saw cuts ranging from $1.5 million to $10 million. All addresses on the percentage price drop list saw cuts of more than 20 percent.

Below is a look at the listings with deepest price chops identified in RealtyHop's report.
