NEW YORK (1010 WINS/WCBS 880/AP) — If you want a piece of Bernard Madoff then the Feds have an auction for you.
The contents of the Maddoffs New York homes — the Manhattan penthouse and the Montauk beach house — will be up for grabs.

Everything from the 1917 Steinway grand piano to Ruth Madoff’s 10.5-carat diamond engagement ring to the ponzi king’s pajamas are going on the auction block.
The Madoffs marked everything they could with their initials — from his Italian black velveteen slippers to underwear.
Also for sale are personal items like used socks, cuticle scissors and even bottles of shampoo.
U.S. Marshal Roland Ubaldo is hoping for a big turnout this weekend to recover money for victims of the biggest ponzi scheme in history.
“This is everything,” Ubaldo told WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell. “So you get to see everything that they had in their home displayed in this auction.”
The auction will be held on Nov. 13 at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers.
