Joan River's New York City Penthouse Sold Faster after She Died Similar ads Member's profile Email Advertiser Tell-a-friend Joan River's New York City Penthouse Sold Faster after She Died This ad is marked as Sold Description: The word is out. The New York City penthouse of the late comedian and talk show host Joan Rivers has sold for 4 million less than it's asking price of $28MM. Unfortunately, this place that had been on and off the market since at least 2009 didn't sell until after Joan has passed away. Did this create a higher level of interest in her place? It could be because it is a known fact that things produced by or belonging to celebrities gain value after they die. -------------------------------------------------------------- The Upper East Side residence, near Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, encompasses the top three floors of a 1903 mansion converted to condos in the 1930s. Many of the original Gilded Age architectural details were restored during Rivers' ownership. The resulting palace-like interiors are opulent and can accommodate grand-scale entertaining. A ballroom and music room with Louis XIV-inspired decor, for example, feature 23-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, antique paneling and columns, tall windows and two fireplaces. The penthouse also has more intimate spaces among its 11 rooms, such as a wood-paneled library with a fireplace and curved windows that look out on one of the penthouse's two terraces. French doors off the dining room open to the other terrace. A second-floor mezzanine overlooks the ballroom and music room. The master bedroom suite and separate two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest quarters with a living room and kitchen are within the 5,100 square feet of living space. Views take in Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. Rivers, who died last year at 81, gained notice in the 1960s as a guest on "The Tonight Show." Two decades later she went on to host "The Late Show With Joan Rivers" and "The Joan Rivers Show." She co-hosted "Fashion Police" from 2010 to 2014. Leighton Candler of Corcoran Group was the listing agent.
