Martin Zweig's Pierre Penthouse Could Fetch $120 Million

New, 75 comments

Chatter about the fate of Martin Zweig's Pierre penthouse began almost as soon as the financial expert (and predictor of the 1987 stock market crash) died in February. Zweig set a record when he spent $21.5 million on the penthouse in 1999 (those were the days), and his penthouse looks to do so again: it's about to hit the market and could sell for $100 million to $120 million or more, a source hints to the Post. Of course, grandiose price predictions are worth nothing, but it's possible this penthouse could deliver. It's a 12,000-square-foot triplex with a ballroom, four terraces, and views of Central Park. A broker once called the apartment's ballroom "the most important room in private ownership in New York City." One dark mark on its history, though: the place failed to sell when listed for $70 million in 2004. Photos from that listing in the gallery above.
