You never know what to expect. Especially from Don Imus.

If you saw a real estate listing for a penthouse apartment facing Central Park—with a wrap-around terrace featuring three exposures—in a grand old building on one of the best blocks of New York’s tony upper westside, would you expect the interior to look like an adobe casita somewhere in New Mexico?

Well, there’s a sky-high casita available—for $16-million. Don Imus just put his Manhattan digs on the market. Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.

The listing reads, “This remarkably intimate and sophisticated apartment, with its amazing terrace and views, is the perfect adaptation of a grand space to very personal and exceptional taste rarely seen in New York.”

The Imus living room

My translation, “This small, yet very expensive, 2 bedroom condo has a classic terrace going for it. But, at $7,505 per month, it’s a perfect example of high monthly carrying costs for a place that will require a total gut. Rarely seen in New York is this kind of design oddness.”

I hope at the open house they offer Margaritas.

We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
