Bernie Madoff: Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Now that the name Bernie Madoff is mud in New York city, he could be looking for a new spot to lay his sleepless head at night. You could possibly be grunting ‘good morning’ to Madoff when you pick up your morning paper off of your welcome mat according to TBM News.
A source at a Harlem real estate brokerage firm told TBM News that they had received confidential inquires from a member of the Madoff family in regards to finding a new home for Bernie while he awaits trial. Although no deal has yet been struck, Madofff, who is practically broke, is looking to move uptown and cut expenses by leasing a 1500 square foot apartment around 124th Street and Malcom X in order to save some money to pay his lawyer, who it turns out according to newly released documents is also one of his fraud victims. Despite the large number of people Bernie ripped off, Harlem may actually be a safe haven for him, as there’s a good chance that none of the residents in his new hood were investors.
I don’t know about you but Harlem has been cleaning up its reputation and the last person we need running the streets is Bernie Madoff. Though this could totally be speculative, we know that stranger things have happened. If you do find yourself living next door to him I suggest that you don’t let him “hold a dollar for you.”
