Herbert Sukenik was recently paid $17 million to move out of his rented apartment on the top floor of New York’s Mayflower Hotel.
The 73-year-old was one of four reclusive bachelors living in the top floors when the Upper West Side building was bought by developers. While the other three bachelors were relocated rather easily, Sukenik stayed in the building for two years before negotiating the $17 million payout as well as a replacement home worth $2 million.
