SELLER: Lyor Cohen
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $28,000,000
SIZE: 6 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 half bathrooms

Property records show that Mister Cohen bought his historic townhouse in November of 1999 paying $9,175,000 for the limestone mansion. Listing information indicates the house was built in 1892 but the now elegant and austere façade was re-designed in 1921 by high class architect Cass Gilbert who occupied the house in the early decades of the the 20th century. Mister Gilbert, for those not familiar with the architectural history and lexicon of turn of the century New York City, was a pioneer of the sky scraper and is the man responsible for–among other buildings–the outrageously gorgeous and intricately articulated Neo-Gothic style Woolworth Building in lower Manhattan.

I could never live in that house. Its too huge. Unless like my entire family moved in with me I would be afraid a bum would be living on one of the floors and I would just never run into him.

Why would you pay 28mil to live in a house in NY where you get no backyard, no beach front property, and the weather sucks 70% of year. CA > NY

I understand why it's that much, but for $28 million it doesn't seem like a lot. You could get a ridiculous sized house somewhere else for a lot less, with tranquility and privacy galore.

Its a nice place but 28 million?

I understand these people want to live in the greatest city in the world and be involved in the scence. Wouldnt 15-18 million be a more reasonable price since he paid 9 million just 11 years ago.

Years ago he originally purchased it for $9M, put a few million into it for renovations, and now he's re-marketing it. And yeah UES is overpriced, but there's overpriced real estate everywhere from The Bay to LA to Texas to Florida to Georgia and everywhere in between. Even in Las Vegas there's a home that was just listed for $18M.
