A Quick Look At Lloyd Blankfein's 15 CPW Residence

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With recent  news that Lloyd Blankfein paid cash for his 15 CPW residence in 2008, it is useful to see just what other masters of industry (or, as the case may be, services), reside at New York's most desirable property. In addition to Lloyd, quite a few other Goldmanites seem to have a particular predisposition for expensive West Central Park views. Here is the full list courtesy of AmazonAWS.

Getting out of that place during a crisis would make the escape from Saigon look like a day at Disneyland.

Also no wood lot for fuel, no well water, no slit trench...but I guess forewarned is forearmed and he and the Mrs would be outta there to the upstate cabin well in advance of the bridges shutting down.

Harnessing the "Animal Spirits" have treated these people well, thanks to near zero interest rates.

If stocks sell off further, and interest rates plunge even more, then these people are going to get even wealthier.

The real estate agent probably did not mention that the view of Central Park works both ways.  Some mort with a rifle would have no problem finding a nice "observation" site in all that lush green.  I wouldn't worry too much about it, Lloyd.  It's not like you have pissed anyone off, right?

That is quite a reach. 

My point is that I would have thought that the smartest and most powerful man in the world would live somewhere more...I don't know...defensible?   Somewhere not across the street from all that cover and concealment.   One of these places, maybe?

Maybe, unlike certain bank CEOs, we want our fellow citizens to be aware of all the risks in any investment.  It's not like snipers in the world's major cities are unheard of in this day and age:

And oh, by the way, the red shirts happen to be bastioned in Bangkok's Central Park. 

Don't feel too bad for the guy.  We all make bad investments.  Maybe he plans to install granite countertops, paint the walls beige, and flip it?

Newsflash to anyone looking for OBL in some cave in Pakistan: Quit looking as it seems obvious they are looking in the wrong place.  A large number of terrorists seem to occupy this particular structure, so the U.S. Military needs to make a sweep of the building to see what turns up. Then again a bunker buster could do the trick.

If Hollywood ever does a remake of Ghostbusters, they've got themselves a new building.  They won't even need the special effects and computer enhancements to produce the spooks, as they are already in residence.
