As part of her big asset forfeiture, Ruth Madoff is giving up her multi-million Park Avenue apartment that she shared with Bernie, which means it’s time to find a new place.
She’s getting to keep $2.5 million, so she should be able to afford something decent (though nothing like she’s been accustomed to).
The only problem: Landlords don’t want her.
The New York Post reports: After Madoff last week agreed to sell her estimated $7.5 million duplex co-op on East 64th Street, the wife of fraudster Bernie Madoff is looking to rent a new home in the Big Apple — but finding no one willing to take her on as a tenant, the sources said.
She has turned to using her maiden name, Alpern, but has had no luck with that, either.
“She has nowhere to go,” a top broker said. “No one wants someone with her name in their building. People like their privacy.”
