Hedge fund billionaire Steven Cohen’s Manhattan apartment is “jinxed” – at least according to the New York Post.
After failing to find a buyer, he slashed $17 million off the four-bedroom’s price tag in December of that same year.
The 9,000-square-foot apartment features 24-foot-high walls of windows with views of Central Park and Downtown. But the price was slashed yet again, to $82 million, before Cohen took it off the market.
“The lack of a buyer might be because some feel the place might have some bad karma or be jinxed because of his SAC troubles,” a broker told the Post at the time.
Now Cohen’s penthouse is back on the market, asking $79 million, but another real estate insider told the Post, “It was way overpriced … There’s still a feeling from some big-money guys that the place is still jinxed.” [NYP] – Christopher Cameron
