Earlier on this blog, I discussed various issues regarding Brooke Astor and the disputes with her son and grandson. On August 13, 2007, Brooke died at her Holly Hill estate in Briarcliff, New York at the age of 105.
Brooke's New York apartment on Park Avenue is on the market. Originally listed at $46 million, the asking price is now $34 million. And, the apartment has gone through renovations.
The apartments is two stories and has 14 rooms, including three maid's rooms, six terraces, and five fireplaces. Note that the monthly maintenance fee is $17,000.
