An Evil Lair In The Sky For Today's International Supervillain

  • The Observer’s pretty sure you can’t keep the art (because if any one of those paintings is an original, the asking price would be stratospherically higher), but, if you’re an “International Businessman” whose “corporate interests” seem to always end up being “disrupted” by the likes of British spies in tuxedoes, Prudential Douglas Elliman may have just found you the ideal NYC “pied a terre.”

    But will your global terror organization company shell out the necessary $14 million to secure a little homey comfort for you?

    Probably not?

    Well, what if you told them it was rocket launcher spitting distance from the UN, where many decisions that might affect them will take place?

    Still no?

    What if you could give them specs like 2 beds (perfect guest room for a visiting sexy female assassin international consultant), 2 baths, 2,871 square feet, washer/dryer (for blood stained unitards sweat stained gym clothes) and a private pool (for aquatic combat training leisure)?

    Still not impressed? These henchmen colleagues of yours drive a hard bargain.

    Okay, what if you showed them the photos in the slideshow here, demonstrating the huge windows perfect for observation of targets sunset entertaining, the wood paneled study in which you can hatch a plot deal, the walk-in closet ideal for exploding briefcases your wardrobe, and the modern kitchen that seems designed for cooking a vegetarian meal a feast of meats and innards?

    Ahh, we thought so. Goldman Sachs always knows a deal when they see one.
