New, 25 comments

UPPER WEST SIDE?The Zeckendorfs created a bastion of modern wealth with 15 Central Park West, attracting celebrities, Wall Street millionaires, Russian billionaires, and bigwig tech execs, and real estate author Michael Gross pulls back the curtain on the exclusive building for his forthcoming book, House of Outrageous Fortune: 15 Central Park West, the World's Most Powerful Address. Having already written the book on old-money New York real estate, Gross was given "unprecedented" access for this endeavor. From the publisher, Simon and Schuster:

Granted unprecedented access to the Zeckendorfs, New York's premier real estate dynasty, Gross offers a penetrating look at their billion-dollar development and into the mindset of its residents, today's upper-crust. With its two concierge-staffed lobbies, walnut-lined library, screening room, sixty-seat dining room with a private chef offering room service, and subterranean health club, Fifteen Central Park West emerges as a character in itself—a towering Olympus for plutocrats whose power and excess stand as emblems of our age of extreme inequality.It hits shelves in March.
