Jeffrey Epstein’s New York mansion sells to former Goldman Sachs executive Michael Daffey for $51 million.
The funds will go to the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Program. Restitution payments to the more than 150 accusers were put on hold when the program began running low on cash.
The sale was facilitated by Adam Modlin of The Modlin Group, but the buyer is not disclosed until later.
The sprawling 28,000 square foot Neoclassical mansion located at 9 East 71st St. is the site of some of the alleged sexual abuse by Epstein of underage girls, according to multiple women who came forward years and decades after their interactions with the disgraced financier. When federal agents raided the home after Epstein’s 2019 arrest, they found “an extraordinary volume” of “nude and semi-nude” photos of underage girls, among other questionable items. During Epstein’s heyday, the townhome’s decor was decidedly eclectic, boasting rows of individually framed eyeballs, a taxidermied poodle and tiger, and a painting of former president Bill Clinton wearing a dress.Forbes
A spokesman for Daffey, who retired this month, says he was never in the home before it was on the market and never met Jeffrey Epstein.
A week from now, on March 15, Epstein’s Palm Beach property is bought by developer Todd Michael Glaser for $18.5 million.
