Paul McCartney is the proud new owner of the $15.5 million penthouse in 1045 Fifth Avenue, the Post reports. The duplex apartment was created and customized by the co-op building's developer, Manny Duell, who died in 1977. His wife lived there until she died last summer, at 92. As a result, the penthouse is, as the Times described it, "a glamorous 1960s time capsule with a dash of Hollywood in its décor." Know who's probably a fan of the 1960s? Paul McCartney. So that worked out.
