Manhattan's most expensive property is on the market
Recently placed on the real estate market for $125 million (not to mention a $47,000 monthly maintenance bill), there is an apartment that has officially become the most expensive home in the city, knocking the previous record holder, the 'One57' Penthouse off the top spot at $110 million.
The home consumes the 41st, 42nd, and 43rd floors, and offers unbroken 360º views of Manhattan, Central Park, the Hudson and East River, while the inside is furnished lavishly – inspired by the Palace of Versailles in France, of course. According to the location's listing, the living room is considered to be one of the "most magnificent privately owned rooms in the world".
It also includes four adjoining terraces, five master bedrooms, six baths (plus three half-baths), five working fireplaces, plus separate guest suites and staff accommodation.
The property was previously owned by stock market analyst Martin Zweig, who famously predicted the 1987 market crash just three days before it happened. Zweig, who passed away last year aged 70, bought the home 15 years ago for $21.5 million; also a record at the time.
