It looks like Rush Limbaugh is moving ahead with his threat to leave New York City. He's (finally!) put his tacky Fifth Avenue apartment up for sale. The cost of ridding NYC of Rush once and for all? $13.95 million.
Limbaugh promised that he'd sell his Manhattan apartment last March after the Paterson administration proposed raising taxes on New York residents who make more than $500,000 a year. (That wasn't the first time he'd made the threat. On the eve of the 2008 presidential election, Limbaugh said he was "seriously considering selling it," since "it may now become stupid to own any property there.")
But now he has! The 20th-floor penthouse at 1049 Fifth Avenue, which Limbaugh purchased in 1994 under the name RH Trust (Rush's middle name is Hudson) was officially listed two weeks ago for $13.95 million. And although he's described the place on his radio show as "fashionable," it's doubtful that will be the word that comes to mind when you look at the photos below, which show off moldings of "hand painted gold leaf" and his "hand painted ceilings and walls" by "renowned artist" Richard Smith.
