  • Leather Walls, Mirrored Boudoir and a Fur Vault for $84.5M (29 photos)

    Madonna, here’s your second chance. The home of developer Keith Rubenstein and his wife, Inga, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side has just hit the market at $84.5 million, as first reported by the Wall Street Journal. They bought the century-old townhouse in 2007 for $35 million, reportedly beating out a much lower bid by Madonna. Renowned for their “over-the-top parties,” according to Architectural Digest, they even installed a ventilated smoking room for their European friends. The adjacent bathroom has mirrors cracked by bullets (edgy!) — reminiscent of the controversial party the real estate mogul threw in an abandoned warehouse last Halloween. (That party’s death-inflected theme, “Macabre Suite,” had “Bronx is burning” overtones and included a sculpture made of bullet-riddled cars. It publicized his business’s upcoming residential/retail complex in the South Bronx.) The home’s more unusual amenities also include red Hermes leather walls in the billiard room, a fur vault, a mirrored boudoir with reflective soaking tub, and a plunge pool next to a sauna. The couple told the Wall Street Journal and Architectural Digest that they spent years renovating the townhouse. Our slideshow includes photos from the current listing plus a few from the previous listing for before-and-after comparison, as well as pictures of a couple of sites that inspired some of its designs (a St. Petersburg palace, for instance, and the Oak Bar at the Plaza in New York).

    Law enforcement is only one part of a larger approach needed to solve the problem of violence in the city, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said Monday following a spate of homicides over the weekend.

Saunders' remarks come after four separate homicides in the city that took place in the span of just a few hours.
