Financial expert and stock market crash predictor Martin Zweig died in February, and his much-talked-of Pierre penthouse will soon hit the open market. Those in the know have hinted that the place could fetch as much as $100 to $120 million, and so far all we've had to ponder are a handful of old listing photos.

How 'bout that ballroom?
