Joan Rivers' Gilded East Side Penthouse Returns for $28M

New, 32 comments

The palatial Upper East Side penthouse that Joan Rivers called home for the last 25 years is now on the market. The queen of comedy died in September, leaving a void not only in the entertainment industry, but also her condo board, where she served as the president. Rivers loved her gilded apartment—she described the decor as "Louis XIV meets Fred and Ginger"—and told the Times in 2012 that she had only listed it to "placate [her] business manager." The apartment first hit the market in 2009 for $25 million, and was last listed in 2013 for $29.5 million. After her death, the condo was transferred to her daughter Melissa, who has now put it back on the market for $28 million. The triplex home measures 5,100 square feet and features four bedrooms, five fireplaces, and opulent things like "gilded antique boisserie paneling and columns."
