Fugitive Jacob "Kobi" Alexander used to be a proud resident of Midtown's Park Imperial, but he now lives in Namibia, and his apartments belong to someone else. One of them, the building's 64th-floor unit, is now on the rental market?for a whopping $100,000/month. The brokerbabble notes that the apartment is "also available for sale, price upon request to serious pre-qualified buyers. We wouldn't mind seeing that rent vs. buy comparison.
The pricing history for this unit is a bit of a see-saw. The place was asking $120,000/month in 2010 and $85,000/month this year. So maybe $100,000 is the sweet spot here. Six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a sunset room, a library, and a reading lounge.
