British model Lily Donaldson spent $2.2 million on a two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan's Alphabet City back in 2008—at the time, brokers pegged it as the most anyone had ever spent on a co-op on that block. Now she's trying to rent the place out for $8,000 a month. Our sister site Curbed NY reports: "Donaldson started off asking $8,500/month, but she's just cut her price to $7,995/month. The apartment does have a separate dressing area and mirrored surfaces in many rooms, so maybe a fellow model will help Donaldson out." [Curbed NY]
