You and your billionaire friends can buy the Plaza Hotel

Written by

DNAInfo reports that the hotel overlooking Central Park will be auctioned off on April 26, including the retail space and the Plaza restaurants. (Just don’t tell Eloise.) Treat yo’self to a 109-year old landmark? Why not? Of course, it will cost you a fortune—close to $800 million or more—and possibly your soul.  

According to the article, David and Simon Reuben are the billionaire bros that currently hold the mortgage to the hotel, but for unknown reasons, the Plaza needs a new Daddy or Mommy Warbucks. So start pinching your pennies now! And lucky, there are a ton of free things to do in this town to keep your funds growing strong.
