Should we really be surprised? Andrew Madoff, the son of ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff, is having a hard time finding a rental apartment in New York City because of his father’s notorious background, according to the New York Post.
Madoff and his fiance, Catherine Hooper, are trying to find an $20,000 a month apartment in TriBeCa or West Village because their children go to school nearby, but building owners don’t want to be associated with Madoff’s name.
The couple has gone so far that Hooper will go view apartments alone without Madoff in hopes of snatching up a rental, but once the broker explains Hooper’s connections to the building owners, they are immediately rejected, according to the Post.
Back in March, Madoff put his Upper East Side apartment at Lux 74 on sale before pulling it off the market a week later to be rented out. Maybe he was anticipating this…. so he can just move back in?
