Earlier on Wednesday, Salon reported on the “financially ruinous” damage Rudy Giuliani has suffered as a result of his many legal woes, and the full extent of it is beginning to emerge.
According to CNN, the former New York City mayor and Trump attorney is on the hunt for “thousands if not millions of dollars” and is scraping together as much money as he can — in part by putting his Manhattan apartment up for sale.
According to a report by The New York TimesThe apartment went on the market in July for the asking price of $6.5 million. It was originally bought by Giuliani and his third ex-wife, Judith Giuliani, in 2002 — shortly after he left office as mayor — for $4.77 million. The new list price would obviously be due to inflation, but less so to the name association. “It was a very positive thing for potential buyers” that Mr. Giuliani lived there, Dolly Lenz, a luxury real estate agent, said in a quote to NYT. “It was like America’s mayor chose that building — all very good things that are attributed to him because he lives in the same building,” she continued, adding that today she “would suspect that it would be very different.”
“The Sotheby’s agent currently offering Mr. Giuliani’s apartment is Serena Boardman, who New York Magazine once dubbed ‘the agent of the fallen stars,'” writes reporter Anna Kodé.
