The exceptionally glamorous Upper East Side home of the late, great Joan Rivers is on the market. The 5,100-square-foot penthouse is located in the heart of Manhattan, between Madison and Fifth avenues, just a few minutes' walk from Central Park. The prewar triplex includes a two-bedroom, two-bath guest apartment complete with its own kitchen. The main residence's dining room (pictured) opens onto a terrace.


Restored early-20th-century architectural features are abundant in the grand ballroom, which has 23-foot-tall ceilings.


Ornate columns with gilded details stand between the ballroom and the music room.


The apartment's elegant music room has a trompe l'oeil blue-sky ceiling and a handsome fireplace.


The wood-paneled library has Central Park views.


One of the triplex's two south-facing terraces has seating for outdoor entertaining.
