Ever wander up Fifth Avenue and wonder about the earthly delights behind the cloistered co-op walls? A tipster browsing the Sotheby's listings discovered that just because it's expensive doesn't mean you should be jealous.

The floral print explosion and are you fucking kidding me? doggy-in-a-tuxedo painting at 960 Fifth Ave. belongs to one Murray Goodman, who made his fortune building shopping malls. He bought this 13-room manse in 1981 for $1.4 million; it went on the market late last year at $32.5 million. Since then he's steadily dropped the price, now a steal at $27.6 million.
