The Madoff NYC Penthouse

Madoff Penthouse floorplan via curbed

Ever since this whole Madoff scandal hit the press, I've been nothing short of obsessed. I know, it's sick to watch this man and his family's pathetic downfall, but I can't look away. I've been mostly waiting to see each of their many properties. How does someone with that much money decorate their home? Well, The Daily News came out with some images of the penthouse from a number of years ago BUT STILL. Something to think about.

Yeah, so this living room is about three times the size of my apartment. Besides that, this room has a gorgeous Lavar Kerman Persian rug estimated at $35,000, gorgeous architectural detailing, a $20,000 Chippendale tea table, and many priceless antiques and works of art.

The Madoff boudoir? EESH to that bed. That's a beautiful wardrobe in the corner though with Chinese porcelain jugs from the 1700s.

Word on the street (slash HERE) is that the property will appear on the market sometime in the near future. I'll just be waiting for more pics of this incredible penthouse, the house in Montauk, the house in Palm Beach, the yacht, and the castle in France.

I'm counting on you to report on the Madoff penthouse when it eventually comes on the market!

I really do not like that old, heavy decorating style, but I am not surprised that this is what the Madoffs chose for their home. I wonder who their decorator was?

Hey TTI,
I googled it and their designer was Susan Blumenfeld who's husband is Ed Blumenfeld, one of Madoff's victims. Here is her/their website (he's a developer). My reaction...EH.

Fascinating! What a layout, but you're right, that bed, my eyes!

Holy crap! I can't get over the floorplan - crazy. So glad he got the sentence he deserved.

Thanks for the view of their apt. It is just all nauseating, especially that bed! Yes, please, updates as they progress!
