Jackie Kennedy Onassis‘ childhood home is on the market for a modest $44 million. Hedge fund manager David Ganek just listed the 2-story apartment at 740 Park Avenue where Jackie spent her youth from ages 2 through seven.
If you happen to have an extra $44 million laying around your bank vault, there’s a few things you should know before you call your broker. No mortgages are allowed in the world’s richest building. Come with cash or don’t come at all. And by “cash,” they mean assets of $100 million liquid. You must also be approved in a vetting process by board members who won’t even show up if they’ve never heard of you. And maintenance fees in this 19-story building of 31 units exceeds $50K a month.

From Curbed NY:
The rumors were true, and hedge fund guy David Ganek has listed his incredible duplex in 740 Park Avenue for $44 million. The apartment, most notably, was the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis from ages two through seven (her grandfather was also the developer of the building in 1929). In recent years, it underwent a renovation, and although it’s hard to improve too much on a Park Avenue Rosario Candela-designed co-op, having Ganek’s incredible modern art collection — quite possibly worth more even than the apartment itself — line the walls certainly doesn’t hurt. The listing photos feature works by Warhol, John Baldessari, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, and Edward Ruscha. Ganek and his wife are, according to the Real Estalker, moving because they are the mystery purchasers of the first Puck Penthouse, which went for $28 million. Let’s hope he has enough wall space for all his art with those huge penthouse windows.
