Steven Mnuchin and 740 Park Avenue (Credit: Getty Images, Wikipedia, and Warburg Realty)U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has slashed the price of his family’s 6,500-square-foot luxe co-op on the Upper East Side to $27.5 million.Mnuchin put the home, located at 740 Park Avenue, on the market a year ago for $32.5 million. In January, the listing took an initial price cut down to $29.5 million.Warburg Realty and listing agents Judy Kloner and Carol Lederman declined to comment. An inquiry to Mnuchin’s press team was not immediately returned.The $5 million chop comes as many pricey residential homes around the Big Apple have been selling at discounts to what they had originally been asking. Though in June, residential sales saw a bump as buyers rushed to close on deals before the imposition of new mansion and transfer taxes in July.Mnuchin’s five-bedroom, 12-room duplex has a private elevator landing, 11-foot ceilings and marble floors, according to its listing. It also has a curved staircase with its original banister.The co-op has been in the Mnuchin family since the 1960s, and Mnuchin bought the unit from a relative nearly two decades ago for $10.5 million.Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s grandfather James T. Lee built the Rosario Candela-designed building in 1929. The 19-story coop, which sits on the corner of 71st Street, has seen some famous residents over the years, from the Rockefellers to the Kochs. In July, developer William Zeckendorf sold his 17th-floor apartment at the property for $29.5 million. This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Now

Tyson Fury battled to a rugged points win over Otto Wallin as he fought for over nine rounds with heavy cuts to maintain his unbeaten record in a dramatic bout in Las Vegas.The 31-year-old Briton, a 1-25 favourite with bookmakers, was expected to walk through Sweden’s Wallin but a deep wound above his right eye was repeatedly checked by the ringside doctor, prompting moments of stunned silence at the T-Mobile Arena.It was a punch in the third round that drew blood above the eye and Fury displayed greater urgency when officials began to show concern, switching from patient boxing to planting his feet in a bid to land heavy, destructive shots.A barrage in the ninth forced Wallin to sway, before a hard right hand piled him into the ropes in the 11th as Fury came through the type of examination few expected with a unanimous 116-112 117-111 118-110 points win.RelatedTyson Fury To Undergo Surgery After Nasty Cut Against Otto WallinSeptember 17, 2019In “Boxing”Boxing: Fury Dumps Coach As Wilder Bout LoomsDecember 15, 2019In “Boxing”Deontay Wilder Promises To Do More Damage To Reopen Tyson Fury’s Cuts When They Clash In FebruarySeptember 19, 2019In “Boxing”

Is something considered a “beauty trend” if it makes people look way worse? Apparently, the hot new beauty trend on Instagram is dying your eyebrows green and then gluing little flowers to them. They’re called garden eyebrows. And sure, they make it look like you have a horrible face fungus . . . but beauty is subjective. So I guess fungus is sexy. You heard it here first.
# 3 – That Time Disney Just Screen Capped a YouTube Video For Concept Art and Then Tried To Cover Up the “Subscribe Here” ButtonNext year brings Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at DHS, but we did get a taste of the ride back in 2017 at DHS. “Art” that inspired the the attraction was posted in at the Walt Disney Presents gallery. When people looked closer, it turned out that it wasn’t actually printed art, but blown up images that were screen capped from Mickey Mouse cartoons on YouTube. They still had the a “SUBSCRIBE HERE” button in the picture. You can’t makes stuff this up. After some laughs were had, the art was seemingly replaced quickly without the buttons.At least, that’s what we thought happened.In April of this year, BlogMickey.com noticed something peculiar. Upon even closer inspection, the SUBSCRIBE HERE buttons were still on the pictures, they were just painted over, and now the paint was coming off.Taken in 2017, this photo shows some of the ” art” which inspired Mickey and Minney’s Runaway Railway. (photo by @blog_mickey)I wonder how many guests tried to press this “button?” (photo by @blog_mickey)Here is a pic of the “new and improved” art. Looks like the SUBSCRIBE HERE button is gone right?Updated art. (photo by @blog_mickey)Not exactly…Wow. (photo by @blog_mickey) # 5 – That Time Voodoo Doughnut Celebrates Its Grand Opening in Universal CityWalk By Having Grand Opening Sale. Only Location Not Eligible? Universal CityWalk.We’re one day removed from Black Friday, and everybody loves a good sale right? What if we were to tell you about a Grand Opening sale in which every store got a discount except the one that was actually opening? Sounds crazy, right? It happened this year though when Voodoo Doughnut officially opened its location at Universal CityWalk. This is like having a birthday party and the only person who isn’t invited is the person whose birthday you’re actually celebrating.Wait…what? Universal’s social media even got in on the game.After the Turkeys came out last year, another Disney owned Twitter handle also lost its mind when Freeform (the channel formerly known as ABC Family) tweeted the following…Edited for l’il SAT SIXers. # 4 – That Time on Twitter When Disney Went DARKThis one is still hard to believe, even as seasoned veterans of DisTwitter.Over the years we’ve shown the differences between the social media presence of Disney and Universal. While Universal is generally Johnny on the spot when it comes to staying relevant, such as a timely pizza fries tweet on the same day as the country received its first Presidential emergency alert, Disney almost always plays it safe. That all changed in April when Disney posted the following tweet.WHAT?!Here at the SATURDAY SIX we’re no prudes, but that is the definition of next level bonkers. As expected, DisTwitter couldn’t believe what they saw. Not only was it crazy that Disney posted something like this, but the tweet stayed up for a while.Average DisTwitter reaction. Share This!This week’s SATURDAY SIX is one of our favorites as we present the Fifth Annual Theme Park “Turkeys” of the Year. For Thanksgiving this week we took a look back at things both Disney and Universal fans should be thankful for, but today we are going to go the other way. Gather ’round as we continue the yearly tradition of awarding six Theme Park “Turkeys” to the craziest, most outrageous, or just downright weird stories of the year, concluding with the coveted Golden Turkey award. Let’s kick off the ceremony with a situation that which seemed to be orchestrated by the Queen of Hearts herself…# 6 – That Time Disney’s Audio-Animatronic Heads Kept Falling OffWe got no food, no jobs, and our pets’ heads are falling off! – Lloyd Christmas, Dumb and DumberBack in January, the theme park year started off with bang when audio-animatronics began to fall apart in front of guests. Of course everything breaks now and then, especially when you are open 365 days a year, but it’s extremely rare for high profile audio-animatronics to have their heads fall off in front of guests. However, on January 28th that’s exactly what happened when an Ursula audio-animatronic in DCA and a pirate auctioneer audio-animatronic in Disneyland Paris had a similar malfunction in front of guests on the exact same day.Ursula audio-animatronic from Florida’s version of the Little Mermaid ride.

(photo by Kim Winder-Thais)Auctioneer pirate head dangling off body. (photo by @HOPAJUL) Believe it or not, this wasn’t the only time Disney tried to cover up a weird mistake at DHS this year. Over in the bus area, there was a sign that listed out all the places where you could take a Disney bus to, like Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Disney’s EPCOT. However, you could also take a bus to Disney’s Disney Springs, which sounds – pardon the pun – Goofy. After a while, Disney finally used a piece of tape to cover “Disney’s” on the sign.Disney’s Disney Springs. (photo by @bioreconstruct)Disney Springs! (photo by @bioreconstruct)“We spared no expense!” – John Hammond, Jurassic ParkOut in Disney California Adventure, they had their own signage issues during the opening of Pixar Pier. On a wait time board, Disney labeled one attraction as the “Pixar Pal-A-Around.” The name is supposed to be “Pixar Pal-A-Round,” and it is the new name for the rebranded Mickey’s Fun Wheel.(photo by @RideVine)Lo and behold, the sign was changed with Disney trying to quickly erase the second “A.” Unfortunately it just made the sign look weird. They also took the “Jessie’s Critter Carousel” attraction off the board, possibly because the ride was not even scheduled to open in 2018.(photo by @Hastin)The next step? Well, just take the Pal-A-Round off the board and put Jessie’s Critter Country back on of course. DUH.(photo by Hastin) # 1 – That Time the Maleficent Dragon Float Breathed Fire FOR REALFestival of Fantasy. (art by Joel Carroll)The Festival of Fantasy parade at Magic Kingdom is our favorite parade at any Disney park. It has a wonderful soundtrack with fun variations on classic Disney songs. It has some tremendous floats, done with the conceit that they were all built by the residents of Fantasyland. And there are a TON of characters. But the true highlight of the parade is the insanely great Maleficent dragon float. The dragon has an awesome steampunk look to it, which is cool enough, but the fact that the dragon breathed fire throughout the parade just put it over the top.Maleficent breathing fire. (photo by Brandon Glover)Unfortunately, as the saying goes, when you play with fire you’re going to get burnt. On May 11th, that’s exactly what happened when the Maleficent dragon caught itself on fire. Its quite the visual to see something as cool as the Maleficent float moving around with its entire head going up in flames. Instead of running away, the entire crowd couldn’t stop watching, with many of them taking pictures and filming the disastrous event. Because all the good Florida theme park bloggers had the day off, every single photo and video of this once-in-a-lifetime moment was captured in PORTRAIT MODE. So while the dragon on fire wins the cherished Golden Turkey Award, every single guest watching the parade that day is awarded the even rarer Platinum Turkey Award for their ineptitude and sheer ignorance of the basic rules for theme park photography.“C’mon baby light my fire… – The Doors (photo by @redheadbabymama)Maleficent billowing smoke after the fire was put out. (photo by @martinMJ22)Now I could never be sure, but I thought that I heard the sound of “Taps” being played, gently. – Ralphie Parker, A Christmas StoryDon’t worry, Maleficent will come back better than ever. And this time with a fire extinguisher! (photo by @matthewcbayer) That’s it for this year’s Turkey of the Year Awards. A big round of applause for our nominees. Somehow there was still some next level insane stuff that happened which we will cover next month in our look back at Reasons We Can’t Forget 2018 (No Matter How Hard We Try!) So stay tuned for the Curious Case of the Missing Letters at Universal, Toothsome being shut down for cockroaches, and an audio-animatronic from the Hall of Presidents used in a way you’ve never seen before.So there you have it: The 2018 Theme Park Turkeys of the Year!

Honorable Mention – That Time Disney Pulled Skyliner Artwork After One DayThere may be only 3 days in the entire year in which EPCOT doesn’t have a festival running, but that’s actually fine with us because the Festival of the Arts has quickly become one of the best things in all of Walt Disney World. This year something odd happened though. In one area, Disney had posted several framed pictures featuring attraction art of various Skyway attractions. There was a poster done in the old timey style featuring the Skyway out in Disneyland, and there was also one featuring the Skyway we had in Walt Disney World. Sandwiched in between the two was a piece of art featuring the Disney Skyliner that is making its debut in 2019.Disney Skyliner attraction poster, as seen at the Festival of the Arts.
