The apartment in the Time Warner building where tech investor Jay Greenwald was found dead in February this year has sold for $8.95 million, according to city records. The buyer was an LLC called “Peachtree NYC.”
Greenwald was 51 when he was found dead by his housekeeper, lying facedown and fully-clothed in his bed in the apartment. A woman, Lauren Levy, was reportedly there with him and claimed the two of them had been doing cocaine.
He purchased the apartment, which is part of the residences at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, in 2010 for $6.3 million. It is 1,653 square feet, and has two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, views of Central Park and the Hudson River and two walls painted by the artist Robert Kushner.
Greenwald made his fortune in the 1990’s tech boom, running a 1-900 psychic hotline company, Quintel Entertainment. He invested in many other companies after selling Quintel, and when he died he was focusing on inveesting in start-ups and young entrepreneurs.
