Joan Rivers' Opulent Penthouse Sells for Full $28M Ask

New, 13 comments

As previously speculated, the late Joan Rivers' gilded Upper East Side penthouse has found a buyer. CNBC reports that the buyers are "Middle Eastern royalty," who paid the full ask, $28 million, likely in an all cash transaction based on how quickly it sold. The 5,100-square-foot triplex, which was described by Rivers as "Louis XIV meets Fred and Ginger," was transferred to Joan's daughter Melissa after the former's death in September 2014. It was put on the market in February, and the family reportedly received multiple offers.
