Forbes is close to selling its headquarters for $55 million, or $380 a square foot, the NY Post reports.

Just two years ago, when the world was quite different, Forbes wanted to sell the building for $140 million, or $1,000 per square foot. Even earlier this year, the Post says the company wanted to get $80 million for the building at 60 fifth avenue.
