Hedge fund billionaire Steven Cohen’s Manhattan apartment is “jinxed” – at least according to the New York Post.

The SAC Capital founder — who owns $300 million in luxury real estate — First Slapped His One Beacon Court duplex on the market for $115 million back in April 2013.

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
