This luxury penthouse, one of America’s most expensive apartments, was bought for $43.7 million in 2007 by the former head of Citigroup, Sanford Weil, who was reportedly one of the 25 people responsible for the 2008 world financial and economic crisis. In 2001 the Weils decided to move downstairs to the 6th floor and give the apartment to charity! Nevertheless, in 2012 they sold it for $88 million to Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev who bought it for his daughter, Ekaterina.
This sensational Pre-War terraced penthouse is located atop a limestone-sheathed apartment building which is truly one-of-a-kind. Designed in French neo-classical style, the 42-foot wide plush pad is among the few stunning architectural residences by noted architect Horace Trumbauer located in New York.
