  • Rudy Giuliani's 3-bedroom Upper East Side co-op apartment just hit the market.

  • The unit, in a landmarked Madison Avenue building, has extensive wood paneling and a library.

  • The listing comes after Giuliani appeared as a co-conspirator in Trump's latest indictment.

Rudy Giuliani, the man who defined 9/11-era Manhattan before descending to ignominy as Donald Trump's election-denying personal lawyer, has listed his Upper East Side apartment for $6.5 million.

The listing by Sotheby's Realty, posted during the final week of July, makes no mention of the property's owner, or the fact that it was the site of a 2021 raid carried out by the FBI during a probe of Giuliani's activities in Ukraine.

Instead, it features the three-bedroom's more salable points — a landmark building near Central Park, a wood-burning fire-place, a "semi-private elevator landing," and a "massive Primary Bedroom" made of two bedrooms that have been combined into one.

Five days after the apartment was publicly listed, Donald Trump was indicted yet again over his efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 election. Giuliani was reported to be "co-conspirator 1" in that indictment.

Some of the listing photos are virtually staged. But a jersey with the number 5 is visible in one of them. It's a replica of Joe DiMaggio's Yankees jersey that Giuliani got in 2002, according to the Village Voice, signed by the famed slugger.

"This splendid residence boasts bright, high-floor outlooks and an abundance of sunshine, high ceilings, and beautiful hardwood floors," the listing says. "The thoughtful and inviting layout of the apartment is complemented by copious original detail, such as wood paneling, and leaded-glass and 12-over-12 paned double-hung windows."

It's not clear why Giuliani is selling the unit, which he has owned for several decades. He appears to have recorded episodes of his podcast from the unit as recently as last week.

Ted Goodman, who has been described as Giuliani's political adviser, said he couldn't immediately comment. Insider was unable to reach Giuliani by phone on Monday morning, and his lawyer Robert Costello and broker Serena Boardman didn't immediately reply to calls or emails.

Despite his history as a prominent prosecutor and mayor of New York City, Giuliani, whose New York law license has been suspended, has had liquidity issues in the past. In 2022, a judge said Giuliani would be locked up if he didn't pay his ex-wife Judith Giuliani over $200,000 in alimony.

The year before that, Giuliani joined Cameo and offered to create personal videos.

"I can do a happy birthday greeting, or a happy anniversary greeting," he says in one of the videos. Initially just $199, they are now $325, per Giuliani's Cameo page.
