Park­side Paradise

Forbes - - Leaderboard Meet The Neighbors -

ACROSS THE STREET from the Cen­tral Park Zoo sits 834 Fifth Av­enue, a lime­stone sanc­tu­ary of Man­hat­tan’s elite for nearly a cen­tury. Al­most from the mo­ment its doors opened in 1931, the Art De­costyle mas­ter­piece has been one of the city’s most pres­ti­gious ad­dresses. Gain­ing ac­cess to 834 Fifth—home to­day to bil­lion­aires and Wall Street ex­ec­u­tives—is tough; the mon­eyed bas­tion has just 24 units. One is newly avail­able fol­low­ing the death of Salomon Broth­ers leg­end John Gut­fre­und this past March. Even by New York stan­dards, the prop­erty has an eye-wa­ter­ing ask­ing price: $120 mil­lion.
