Meryl Streep’s Tribeca penthouse sells at a discount

After nearly two years on the market, Meryl Streep’s sprawling Tribeca penthouse finally found a buyer. The Wall Street Journal reports that the legendary actor’s enormous abode at 92 Laight Street sold for $15.8 million—or 36 percent less than its original asking price of $24.6 million. (The broker who represented Streep, ever optimistic, told the WSJ that the figure was still a “very strong number” considering the current state of the market.)

Streep, along with husband Donald Gummer, closed on the penthouse for $10.13 million in 2006, per public records. That was two years after the New York Times casually reported on their purchase of the “4,000-square-foot penthouse with a wraparound terrace.” Whoever bought the place is getting a stunner: The apartment has incredible views, beautiful interiors, and the prestige of having once been home to an actual living legend.
