Located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side “in one of the East Sixties grandest limestone mansions,” is entertainer Joan Rivers’ penthouse condo, which is listed for $25 million, according to Big Time Listings.  Although the condo address is not disclosed, Big Time says the property is located at 1 E. 62nd Street (off Fifth Avenue, in the Lenox Hill sub-neighborhood).

According to the Sotheby’s listing, the “…penthouse aerie (“nest”)” has a doorman (of course), is located steps from Central Park (naturally) and was designed by America’s greatest classical revivalist, Horace Trumbauer in the neo-French Classic style (magnifique!). The 42-foot wide mansion was built for Alice Troth Drexel in 1903. (Yes, those Drexel’s).

So, why is Joan selling?  According to the NY Times, she wants to move closer to her daughter, Melissa and grandson who live on the West Coast. Joan recently won the 2009 version of The Celebrity Apprentice, even beating out her daughter.

    Joan should give Donald Trump first option. This looks like his style, except that it’s not quite gaudy enough…

    Maybe she’ll sell it to Annie Duke. “You’re a Pohkah Playah Dahling, a Pohkah Playah!”

    A condo for $25,000,000?? The real reason she wants to sell it is the booming bass sounds throbbing through the common walls from her neighbor’s big-buck stereo systems.

    No amount of glitter will change a glorified apartment into a decent home.

    I met you once at an engagement in Lake Tahoe. You were simply lovely and very well mannered. I love my daughter also. I’m sure being with her and your grandson will make every day more special for all of you. I think you are fabulous, funny, and look much younger than your 75 years! Hooray for you, I’m one of your biggest fans, and I’m not gay so you see your fan base isn’t all gay heterosexuals love you too.

    Joan is a disgusting individual. I will never have anything good to say about her. I watched the Celebrity Apprentice and I lost all of the little respect I had for her. She was childish, crude, rude and sickened me to even watch the show. I do not even want to talk about the butchered face and her perma-grin that makes her look like “The Joker”. Her and her trashy daughter should do the world a favor and disappear for good.

    and tbe only thing you all left out about ms. rivers, is that she is still probably about the funniest person on the face of the planet. and don’t tell me about this comic or comedian who is funny after a dozen writers have come up with stick for him or her. ms. rivers is funnier gabbing off stage, then most of those guys and gals are on stage! as to how she choses to live, what business is that of yours—you all sound soooooooooo jealous!

    What an awesome property. With her success on the apprentice, I dont think she really needs the money. She must be just bored.
