This poor thing has sat for 18 months, unable to get a nibble at $4,200,000.
Meanwhile #12G got multiple bids and sold in a few weeks for $5,200,000: http://streeteasy.com/nyc/sale/678931-coop-146-central-park-west-upper-west-side-new-york
Both have the same 580 shares and in 1972 sold for $26,000 (plus a $34,000 share of underlying mortgage.)
Maybe buyers were put off by this one's having been chopped up into little rooms.
They want the *buyer* to pay a 3.5% flip tax. That's got to be off-putting.
Yes, the by-laws specify it's to be paid by the buyer. I guess buyer-pays was why such an unusually-hefty transfer fee was approved by the shareholders.
Didn't deter the 12G bidders, though, and buyers factor it in anyway.
Why has 15C been on the market for years?
Maybe undercut by better-priced south-front-corner competitors.

When 15C first listed, 19C had just gone to contract at $14,500,000, so $20,000,000 made no sense.
While 15C sat, 21C came along and went for $13,500,000.
Then 15D up the street at the Beresford sold for $16,500,000.
If someone wanted to pay ~$20,000,000, there was this duplex at the Beresford: http://streeteasy.com/nyc/sale/679015-coop-211-central-park-west-upper-west-side-new-york It didn't sell either.
