Donald Trump recently invited brokers to tour a floor-through penthouseapartment in his nearly completed renovation of the old Hotel Delmonico,a storied Park Avenue tower at the corner of East 59th Street inManhattan's high-rent Plaza district.

"The chandeliered lobby gleamed softly with multicolored stone tile and dark upholstery. Upstairs on the 29th floor, one of the dozen ultraluxe apartments on sale, brokers and reporters were toured through the unfolding rooms by sales agents; waiters proffered seared tuna, filet mignon and puff pastry. We watched the city through surprisingly narrow, deep set windows as the evening sky darkened in the east and to the north and south."
