TAKE A LOOK INSIDE JOAN RIVERS’ EPIC NYC CO-OP: REAL ESTATE PORN
UPDATE (July 2015): The New York Times reports Rivers’ co-op was sold for the asking price to “Middle Eastern royalty”…
“It’s where Marie Antoinette would have lived if she had money.” That’s how the glamorous and genius, trailblazing comic Joan Rivers described her New York City co-op, located just off Fifth Avenue on 62nd Street.
Rivers’ 11-room, 5,000 square foot, pre-war triplex penthouse has just been listed for the nice even sum of $28 million ($17,000 / month maintenance fee). It’s the place she had her legendary annual holiday party where Howard Stern said she “welcomed everyone like they were part of Hollywood” and acted like a “rich protestant,” serving cucumber sandwiches sans crust.
This one-of-kind oasis is part of a converted, fully-staffed Gilded Age limestone mansion. Rivers’ home features a private elevator, 23′ ceilings in some rooms, a working fireplace and two terraces partially facing Central Park.
No images of the kitchen, four and one half bathrooms or four bedrooms are available. Antique furnishings are being prepared for auction soon.
