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.
