Living Large In A $20 Million Upper East Side Residence

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — In the latest edition of Living Large, CBS 2’s Emily Smith takes us inside a $20 million home on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, built a century ago for the Guggenheim family.

Built in 1910, it was the beginning of luxurious apartment living. The original curved staircase and stained glass double height curved church window are things the Guggenheim family imported from Europe.

The primary entertaining rooms have a light and roomy feel with original architectural woodwork and tens of millions of dollars in artwork throughout the home.

Three bedrooms grace the top floor. While most of the room smells of old world luxury, modern his and her bathrooms look as though they were lifted from a five-star hotel.

If closet space is something you dream of, the home also has a seemingly never ending wall of closets.

    The CEO recently held a company-wide meeting and told a roomful of employees. “I know many of you labor like dogs night and day for what amounts to the minimum wage, have no medical or retirement benefits, have worked here for 20 years and never received a bonus, and your kids will have to get a job with the department of sanitation because you can’t afford to send them to a community college. Well I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news is I’m letting most the company’s minimum wage employees go today. The good news is with the savings this company will see with all these terminations, I’m entitled to received a $25 million bonus. And I’m buying a new apartment. You can see pictures of it online!
