Simon Garber, aka the Taxi King, has slapped his showy Tribeca penthouse back on the market, this time for $25 million. Here is a look inside.

Garber, who owns Yellow Cab SLS Jet Management Corp. and operates roughly 275 taxis in the city, combined two units on the 32nd floor of the building at 101 Warren Street into one penthouse. Garber is also the founder of the polo club of Colts Neck, N.J., and owns roughly 850 taxi medallions in Chicago.



Garber has previously offered the apartment as a $100,000-a-month rental and listed it for $30 million, then $27 million. The 6,400-square-foot penthouse has now seen another $2 million discount, according to Curbed.



Designer Richard Mishaan gave the apartment its lime green kitchen, mosaic tile motifs and all its other generally over-the-top finishes. Selling this one might require finding a very special buyer.
