From the New York Web site: Bernie Madoff’s penthouse on New York City’s Upper East Side may be close to finding a buyer.

Brokers asking to show Madoff’s former
at 133 East 64th Street have been told that there is an accepted
offer on the property, sources said.

The seized co-op,
which is being sold by the United States Marshals Service, is
currently listed by Sotheby’s International Realty brokers Anne Corey
and Serena Boardman for $8.9 million after a $1 million price chop in November.

The property was listed as having an accepted offer in at least one
brokerage’s internal listing system Thursday afternoon.

But Roland Ubaldo, a spokesperson for the US Marshals Service, said
the brokers are negotiating with potential buyers and that the
property is still being shown.

Corey and Boardman were not immediately available for comment.

Madoff’s former Montauk home recently sold for $9.4 million. His five-bedroom Palm Beach property at 410 N. Lake Way is still on the market for $7.9 million, after a price cut from $8.49 million in October.
