The price of Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse has dropped from $88 million to $65 million, according to a report.
The dead pedophile’s property at 9 E. 71st Street, a 28,000-square-foot Neoclassical townhouse, went on the market along with his Florida mansion in July.
The executors of the multimillionaire’s estate have now lowered the price of the Upper East Side property by $23 million — or around 26 percent, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The housing and rental markets have taken a nose-dive as residents have been fleeing New York City in droves during the pandemic.
This has been particularly felt in the luxury real-estate market which only saw 22 sales totaling just over $10 million, in the first 8 months of the year, as compared to 64 sales over the same time period in 2019, the Journal reported.
And townhouse sales were down 50 percent from last year, the Journal said citing a brokerage firm report.
Epstein has long been accused of abusing young women and girls at all of his properties including homes in New Mexico, Paris and on his private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The former hedge-funder pleaded guilty in Miami in 2007 to state prostitution charges and spent 13 months in jail.
He committed suicide by hanging in a Lower Manhattan jail cell in August 2019 while he was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
