    Party Over: Pierre's $70M Penthouse Listing Disappears

    Four years after it hit the market and became the biggest symbol of Manhattan's new real estate boom—and one day after that boom was pronounced dead—financier Martin Zwieg's $70 million triplex penthouse at the Pierre has vanished from the Brown Harris Stevens website. Braden Keil confirms that Zwieg has taken the 16-room spread, at Fifth Avenue and 61st Street, off the market. When it was first listed in 2004, the apartment was the most expensive in New York by a large margin. It had since been surpassed by a pair of apartments at 15 Central Park West, but the $70M Pierre listing—with its $39,000 monthly maintenance bill—was always just a bit more insane. Along the way, we've had a peek or two inside, dealt with rumors of a sale and even experienced one bitter break-up. But through it all, the $70 million penthouse remained, like a gentle shoulder to lean on. Godspeed, Pierre, we'll miss you.
