The prison-bound brother of convicted Ponzi scheme operator Bernie Madoff attended his granddaughter’s bat mitzvah in a space described as “posh” this weekend, after a judge delayed his lockup date for the occasion.
One month before beginning his 10-year presence sentence, Peter Madoff – the brother of convicted Ponzi scheme operator Bernie Madoff – has sold his posh Park Avenue home, according to a published report.
According to the New York Post, owners Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz have refinanced $450 million in loans that were borrowed against SportsNet New York, the cable network which airs the vast majority of Mets game throughout the season.
Peter Madoff maintained that he never knew his brother was orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme in history, but victims speaking out in court Thursday – and even the judge herself — don’t believe him.
When Mets fans across the Tri-State Area awoke to the news that third baseman David Wright agreed a seven-year, $122 million extension, it must have felt like Christmas morning had come weeks early.

Hundreds of Bronx residents say they’re the victims of a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme run by the man they trusted to prepare their taxes.

For a short while there, and in the end it could prove out as a VERY short while, the Mets could share a laugh over the Yankees’ starting rotation.
“He was desperately disappointed that the Mets’ case didn’t go to trial. He was hoping the Mets’ defense would make the case he’d been making to me — that they had no reason to doubt Madoff,” biographer Diana Henrique said.
