Steve Wynn Double Down on Central Park South

Earlier today we discussed the staggering $52,500,000 purchase by financier Howard Marks of a gigantic duplex at New York City's 740 Park Avenue.

No doubt much to his delight (and chagrin), his real estate star is being snuffed out by 70-year old (and legally blind) casino king Steve Wynn who recently took a much younger (but middle-aged) wife and, according to all the reports, shoveled out a hair-raising $70,000,000 for a duplex apartment atop The Ritz-Carlton on New York City's Central Park South.

Your Mama is kinda speechless. Honestly.

We did have something to say, however, about the palatial penthouse sprawler in March (2012) when we dissed and discussed the 10,882 square foot park view aerie, then listed at $77,500,000 and owned by property developer Christopher Jeffries.
