In Michael Shnayerson’s compelling profile of the beautiful blonde fashion-PR-turned-fashion-ingenue Tory Burch, “An Empire of Her Own,” in the February 2007 issue of Vanity Fair, Burch says she and her soon-to-be-ex-husband Chris only looked at the most famous duplex at 740 Park , formerly owned by John D. Rockefeller Jr. and Saul Steinberg, as “a lark.” It was a potentially expensive lark, in that case. An intimate of Steinberg’s says the Burches offered “sizably more” money than the ultimate purchaser and current occupant, Steve Schwarzman (who paid $30 million for it in 2000), but were refused because Steinberg’s broker feared they’d be rejected by the picky building’s co-op board. Burch now lives in the Pierre Hotel, in a much-expanded version of what was once Chris’s bachelor pad.
