Presenting DSK's Brand New $14 Million Tribeca House Arrest Palace

Tyler Durden's picture

DSK's torturous stay in corporate housing for the average joe, even for those from IMF bailed out countries, is coming to an end. Next stop: a $14 million palace just purchased by the missus at 153 Franklin Street, half a block away from iconic TriBeCa eatery Bubby's. From the WSJ: "David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the state court system, said that New York Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus approved Mr. Strauss-Kahn's move to a new residence during a conference call with his defense attorneys and prosecutors on Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Bookstaver said he doesn't know where Mr. Strauss-Kahn's new residence will be or when he will be moved." Damn it sure is good to be married to a billionairess, who will do everything in her power from preventing her husband's improprieties from spilling over into her own social scene.

A brief description of the 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom townhouse which was recently listed by StreetEasy as costing $13.995 million.

Ass-Raping bastard is getting a pretty good deal, I'd say.

Loonie's picture

Indeed. Plus, I wonder if he's gonna get to choose the maid himself. Who knows.

When he moves into his permanent room in Rikers, the contrast will make it that much  more painful.

What a disgusting shit hole of a place that is. It gives a whole new meaning to the words "Lipstick on a Pig".

27 foot wide? My Garage is 27 foot wide with 10 foot high ceiling. Does the house at least have a two car garage like mine? Forget that dump.

jeff montanye's picture

somehow i don't think that's the way most will see this.  these pictures and the dsk accusations are indeed useful material for education of the masses in the ways of the elites.  the control frauds are somehow too complex and dry to heat the blood but the illicit/criminal sex combined with over the top opulence might do it.

Husk-Erzulie's picture

It's shamefully vulgar, tawdry even.  Wife should be arrested and charged with apallingly bad taste.

disabledvet's picture

that's "maidS" to you.  MaidSSSSS.

Edmon Plume's picture

"Nanny/Guest Suite w/bath & separate entrance..."

Well now.  Sounds like the perfect set for DSK.

Sparkey's picture

Come on now Ray! A man that rich can't be bad.  I'll give a rich guy the benefit of the doubt anytime! I wonder what  really happened that day! I'm sure it would surprise us, Do you think she will get a lot of money out of all this and return to Africa and live out the rest of her, short life as some kind of a celebrity for having brought the rich European down??

He's been set up.  He predicted he would be, just like this, in an interview just a week before it happened.  And this gem, a man who has just committed assault and rape and is trying to escape, calls the hotel from the airport to tell them he left his cell phone and would they please forward it to him?

schizo321437's picture

If you read about him and his reputation some time ago, you might have had an epiphany and realised how to destroy him. The public are such firm believers in DNA, and they can`t get over their class resentment.

 

The Liberation article was made up though. It came out after the allegations. It`s weak because it can be taken either way.

trav7777's picture

lol...I can't believe the numbers of people rushing to his defense or when a crooked oligarch scumbag gets busted, assuming that it was some vast conspiracy to set him up.

News flash:  the guy engaged in illegal behavior just like Spritzer did.

I've heard an agent running advance payments through the Guinean wronged woman's book rights is actually paying for his digs.

Josh Randall's picture

That's how the Illuminati roll - get baked down in public but live like a King behind the scenes. Whether he was set-up or not, I hope someone $h!ts on his pizza when people find out he's their newest tenant

I fell sorry for the stuffed animals, they are gonna be raped senseless.

Korrath's picture

Jesus H. Christ.  His wife paid for this?

 

She does know what happened, right?  I mean, even if he turns out to have been set up and the whole sordid affair was consenual ( I'm not saying it was )...I would still imagine that sticking your penis in the maid's mouth would be considered uncouth by the wife, if not outright fucking vulgar.

Ben Dover's picture

Actually I think this was paid for by about a dozen African countries. 

knukles's picture

The fine line between uncouth and vulgar is illuminated (snigger) by whether said penis was inserted into a (as in any) rectal cavity, first.

dhengineer's picture

Jeez, my wife won't even let me date, let alone do something like this.  If I was in his preDICKament, she wouldn't buy me a house.  Instead, I'd have to sleep with one eye open and wear an industrial-strength cod-piece 100 percent of the time...

Mad Max's picture

So this is better than Rikers Island, huh?

RobotTrader's picture

I told 'ya guys this Plutocrat was going to get off easy....

Trillax's picture

... and I don't think anyone disagreed. How's those assless chaps and/or Footlocker doing? I mean really.

Who has gone into a Foot Locker since you could wear 'Hypercolor' and fart different colors?

disabledvet's picture

i think that was the maid's original complaint actually:  "he got off WAY to easy."  and then after a thoughtful silence the police were about to ask...but then she screamed "AND THEN HE...

knukles's picture

Nice job for a socialist if one can get it.
Hypocrite.

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

Ok, so, I was thinking...everybody thinks this was a setup, including DSK, as he had said months ago that Sarkozy would set him up as a rapist.  Then why did he not travel with his wife?  I would have had my wife with me wherever I went.  I would have had her in that hotel room with me, that is for sure.  So I got to thinking, is he on the take?  Was he blackmailed?  I am just saying, because once again, if he knew they were gunning for him, why was he acting so lame and traveling solo?

knukles's picture

"...is he on the take?"

"...is he on the take?"

As head of the IMF, a global bankster's bankster with no official oversight by anybody or anything which even gives a rats ass?  Head of an organization which systematically even by the Rothschild's own words, "enslaves with debt", rapes and pillages whole entire fucking countries, redistributing the riches to developed world governments and the rich and powerful.  Imagine the freedom of unquestioned wire transfers to and from, through a non-audited international supra-national bank.  No different than the Fed or any other such institution with no oversight.

The power and magic of sending money unquestioned to or from any where in the world.  Where the fuck do all those peanut farmer third and fourth world dictators who are weaning their countries on the IMF teat send their money to?  IMF funds?  Anybody wanna bet who gets cuts of the pirated loot?  Just another conspiracy theory, another meaningless fantasy, another novella in the history of mankind.

"...is he on the take?"

Fuck no.

He was on the take.

Who, for example is gunning for Greece's gold reserves?  The EBC and IMF.  They want the shit as collateral, knowing full well that the borrower (Greece) is going to go belly, subsequent to having been jammed with additional debt. 

Ever fucking heard of Fraudulent Conveyance?

Was he on the fucking take?

 

In the interest of full disclosure, I have never met DSK, never worked for the IMF, do not know his wife, I am not aware that I would, do or don't know any of his other victims, couldn't care less about getting a job there or in any other similar institution, have never to my knowledge benefited directly of indirectly through any IMF program, and don't even like the fucking French because as an Anglo, got pissed upon by the arrogant little pricks one too many times.  And no, it's not a resentment, just plain fucking Karma, dude.

Schadenfreude

La la la...me me me...

Figaro, fiiigaaarooo!!!

Schadenfreude...exactfuckinlacty.

Good rant, but I think you missed my point.  My question is, did someone say they would kill his family and kill him unless a spectacle was made of his nature.

knukles's picture

I apologize.  I did miss that.  By a mile.  But had fun going down the path I'd chosen.

Oh, and about him getting knocked off?  You just gave me an idea!
Yeah, if he knows too much and gets the old El Pissoed at either being set up or not being bailed out with a mere slap on the hand, there could be many who might think he'd possibly be too big a song bird for their good. 

Yeah, a right bloody Ramond Chandler novel.

nmewn's picture

Personally, I think he cares about his family as much as he cared about the maid.

Prolly jus me though ;-)

disabledvet's picture

you know it's real "when they think it's a set up."  I actually had to apologize to myself for thinking he might have been innocent.

Trillax's picture

With that cinema setup, the porn should feel real life. Perhaps some maid-inspired titles?

JustACitizen's picture

How would you like to be the housekeeper? I don't think all of those gleaming surfaces are maintained by the little woman... Maybe as a political wife she was just relieved that he was getting his jollies elsewhere...

Or, maybe MrsDSK hired someone named "Edgar" to handle it though...

Ah to be obscenely wealthy and oh so continental...

Munch munch munch...

Relax, its really not worth the 14 million. Not to come off like a complete ass here but there are nicer places to be had for that kind of money.

wretch's picture

You came off like a complete ass there.

Ahmeexnal's picture

Yep, Greece is selling the island of Lesbos for 12 million.

Sophist Economicus's picture

Great idea -- sic him on the Lesbos!

zaknick's picture

DSK blamed Putin for the setup-Putin sec issued official denial. He's guarded by the same bunch who guarded Madoff -you dont entrust your sec to just anyone. Noticed that his Putin jab didn't get much airtime on the KKK MSM -same people he pissed off with his bancor talk.

Glenn Beck is pure Goebbelian evil. Amazing to see somthimg like that on TV. Interesting times.

tom a taxpayer's picture

Maybe DSK will suffer from being locked up 24/7 with his dumbass wife.

I am a Man I am Forty's picture

let her throw her money away on his rapin' cheatin' ass, the quicker it gets out of her hands the better we all are

A naked, and wrinkly, DSK: "Don't you know who I am?"

Maid: "Er... Bill Clinton? ....Al Gore? .... (running) I know you can't be Teddy Kennedy so I give up!"

Am i missing something ?  surely all of this is only temporary until the guilty verdict

and then back to the real world of orange jumpsuits ?

justtotaketheedgeoff's picture

Was that place designed to look like the interior of an airport on purpose?  Even the bathroom looks like an airport restroom. Oh well, I'm not an urban sophisticate so I don't know much about this stuff.

ThisIsBob's picture

Can we get a couple of shots of the maid's quarters?

alien-IQ's picture

That has got to be the swankest "prison" (holding cell?) in history. Pablo Escobar would be jealous.
