See Inside Jackie Kennedy's Park Avenue Apartment


While Jacqueline Bouvier's family only lived in unit 6/7A at 740 Park Avenue for six years in the 1930s, it's still known as the "Bouvier apartment," according to Curbed.

After a few price chops, city records show that hedge funder David Ganek sold the apartment for $25.25 million on July 13 to Jacob M. Safra, an heir to the Safra banking fortune. The former first lady's grandfather, James T. Lee, developed the building, which is known as one of the most desirable addresses in the city.

Below, take a look at the 12-room duplex, which presumably looks quite different from the way it did in Jackie's childhood (the current version was designed by Joe Nahem of Fox-Nahem). It includes "original architectural details [that] have been painstakingly restored to museum quality," a "baronial" living room, and a master suite with two bathrooms and dressing rooms.
