    I Want To Be Haunted By Your Ghost: Sam Waksal’s Creepy Apartment Bought By Blackstone Managing Director

    Its two previous tenants have been arrested. It’s got a secret, illegal stairway sealed up behind sheetrock. The interior—from private foyer, to huge living room leading into a skylighted bedroom—sounds like the place Al Pacino called home in the Devil’s Advocate.
