Have you pissed Vladimir Putin off? Done something that might make Ken Griffin want to swing a piece of furniture in your general direction? Thrown Steve Cohen under the bus, or tried to have your decades-old divorce from him reopened? Pursued an investigation into Argentina’s outgoing president? Or perhaps you’re just a foreign oligarch looking for a place to stash some of your money, sensitive documents and maybe yourself if things get a little too hot at home?

Well, look no further than the Heritage at Trump Place, where a spacious triplex is now available for just under $50 million. That may sound a little rich for the Upper West Side but it does have a unique amenity: bullet-proof panic rooms. Three, in fact—one on each floor, presumably. Never been used, either, as the Saudi prince who had them installed barely ever saw the place.

The apartment is four-bedroom, four-bathroom and six half-bath home that was created by merging six smaller units on the fifth, sixth and seventh floors of the 31-story condo building, city records showed. The apartment has a suite of customized spaces, including three bullet-proof panic rooms, a fitness center, billiards room, hair salon, a ventilated cigar room and a 60-foot living room overlooking the Hudson River, the listing said.

There are also built-in saltwater aquariums, a sushi island bar, outdoor terraces and a six-person Jacuzzi in a lounge area overlooking the water. Large slabs of Calacatta marble and other stones are used throughout the space, and the apartment is fully automated with smart-home features.

They said it couldn't be done. They said it didn't matter if it was $4.5 million or $2.5 million or if they were giving it away. They said potentials buyers wouldn't be swayed by the pitch to "sleep where Angelo Mozilo hath slept, after a few too many troughs of Boone's farm" (AKA "The Mozilo Bedroom"), or to impress guests with the cocktail party fodder that "that chair you're sitting in right now the very one Ken Lewis was sitting in when he decided to buy Merrill Lynch, can't get better investing karma than that." They said the vomit stains on the rug would not be a selling point. They were wrong.
