Palatial United Nations Home With Insane Murals Wants $8.5M

The sprawling apartment near the UN has "just" two bedrooms and 2.5. baths, but makes up for it with a massive living room, dining room, and library that all boast East River views. The 24th-floor co-op at 870 United Nations Plaza, a building Walter Cronkite once called home, just hit the market asking $8,495,000. The 5,500-square-foot apartment has been written up in Architectural Digest, and that's not surprising considering the lavish spread has features from "gold-plated hardware to the sumptuous silk, leather and hand-painted murals adorning all walls." Yes, it's the kind of apartment with multiple pieces of gilded, framed artwork in the all-marble bathroom (plus statuary, of course) and a canopy bed in the master that looks straight out of A Knight's Tale.
