The Brentmore at 88 Central Park West

The daughters of late Bernie Madoff associate Steven Mendelow sold their Central Park West co-op for $13 million.

Cara and Pamela Mendelow sold the apartment at the Brentmore at 88 Central Park West to a buyer hidden by a trust, property records filed with the city Tuesday show. Neither party could be immediately reached for comment.

Property records show that the sisters’ father transferred control of the unit to them in 2006. Famous owners in the 12-story building include actor Robert DeNiro and photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Steven Mendelow was an accountant who allegedly played an instrumental role in funneling investors to Madoff’s notorious Ponzi scheme. He died in 2016.

More than 13,500 people and entities were listed as Madoff victims when a New York federal bankruptcy court revealed their names in 2009, with a high concentration living on the Upper East Side.
