Joan Rivers Penthouse Is Legendary

Joan Rivers Penthouse is back on the market for the asking price of $28,000,000. This is just slightly less than the listed price of $29,000.000 back in 2012 when I shared the grand old Manhattan Penthouse on Joan Rivers Penthouse.

Corcoran has the new listing and calls Joan Rivers Penthouse “New York’s most legendary apartment. This coveted Penthouse is changing ownership for the first time in 25 years.The penthouse is a turn-of-the-century opulent mansion of the Gilded Age.”

The Manhattan apartment is ornately decorated and I agree is legendary. I wish they would film a movie here before it sells to show off all the lavish gold and gilded decor.

One of my favorite rooms in the Penthouse is the Music Room with its curved window seating area. Back in 2012 the maintenance on the apartment was listed as a quarter of a million dollars per year.

“The second floor, with a mezzanine that overlooks the music room and ballroom, leads to the master suite that has French doors opening to views of Central Park. Staff quarters can be accessed from this floor, which has a separate staircase leading to the kitchen.”

Our most loved and missed Joan Rivers did a lot of entertaining here over the years.
