Sleep Where Sandy Weill’s Son Hath Slept

The former Citigroup chairman bought the property next to his house in Greenwich hoping it’d become “a family compound,” and while his son Marc built a house on it and lived there for four years, in 2008 he sold it back to dad and split for NYC. So! What do you get for $14 million asking price? 16,460 square feet, views of Long Island Sound, a home theater, and a koi pond, yes, but also, and much more importantly: the opportunity to have Sandy Weill knock on your door and ask to borrow a cup of sugar, as he’ll be your neighbor. And according to Papa Weill, the house on the market practically dwarfs his own, which is something of a hovel in comparison. Read more »

When Sandy Weill sold his penthouse at 15 Central Park West for $88 million — the most expensive home in city history for more than twice what he had previously paid — it made headlines around the world. But now, The News’ Matt Chaban has learned, Weill is quietly trying for an even bigger flip, selling his former maids quarters in the platinum-plated building for six times what he paid. Unit 6H, facing out on busy Broadway, came on the market for $6.25 million in the middle of January, but Weill cut the price to $5.65 million two weeks later. That’s still a lot more coin than the $980,000 he paid for the 1,079-square-foot unit in October 2007. It’s also twice what an identical unit two floors up sold for last May. [NYDN via BI]

No one took a bite at $115 million but at 98, this thing’ll practically sell itself! Read more »

Want to make a difference in the life of an economically disadvantaged ex-bank chief? As some of you may recall, the collapse of Bear Stearns in March 2008 made a serious dent in former Chairman and CEO Jimmy Cayne’s net worth, shrinking $1 billion and leaving him with a net worth of mere millions. For a boy who was once in a position to buy anything his heart desired (90210 Kush, Grand Daddy Purple, Blueberry YumYum, Alaskan Thunderfuck, Lavender Hash, Northern Lights #5), it’s meant a seismic change in Cayne’s lifestyle. For example, JC can no longer justify the cost of the 10-week sleepaway bridge camp he’s attended every summer for the last 18 years. That’s where you come in. Read more »

Sleep Where George Soros (‘s Son) Hath Slept

Update: just kidding, you can’t– GS was the buyer, not the seller (we’ve been drinking).

It may not be your dream apartment but it does have some nice qualities, like 5,700 square feet and a rooftop basketball court. The younger Soros is asking for $12 million; make him an offer today before it’s promised to someone else. [Curbed via BI]

As you all well know, Steve Cohen has been on a bit of a shopping spree lately. And while the SAC Capital founder is a fairly wealthy man and can buy most if not all of what his heart desires, it never hurts to have a little extra cash on hand (one never knows when an impulse purchase will present itself). That’s where you come in. Read more »
