Wall Street's Best Paid CEO Is Trying To Save The Panoramic View From His Sick Penthouse — Here's The Apartment

One York Street

Last week, it was reported that Jefferies CEO Richard Handler is trying to stop the construction of a Tribeca roof top deck that would block his panoramic views from his apartment. 

Handler, who was awarded $58 million, including his 2012 compensation and future incentives, filed a petition in Manhattan Supreme Court claiming the planned roof deck at 50 Varick Street would obstruct his river views from his penthouse at 1 York Street, according to DNAInfo. 

We were able to track down photos of Handler’s apartment and the views are jaw dropping. 

The One York Street building is located right at Tribeca and SoHo.

The One York Street building is super swanky.

The building has a swimming pool and a gym.

There's also parking available at One York Street.

Handler purchased the penthouse in May 2010 for $23.7 million, according to Bloomberg News.

The penthouse is a 6,096 square foot duplex.

It features 1,931 square feet of outdoor space.

The apartment features an integrated speaker system, wet bar and media room.

There are 15 rooms, including three bedrooms and five bathrooms.

And plenty of closet space.

Now let's look at Handler's views...
