- An apartment building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan has been home for years to young models, girlfriends, pilots, and lawyers associated with multimillionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
- Almost all the apartments in the building are owned by Epstein’s brother, Mark, a real estate developer. He purchased them from the billionaire Leslie Wexner, Jeffrey Epstein’s only known client.
- Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak has been repeatedly spotted by residents visiting the building.
- MC2, the modeling agency Epstein invested in, used the apartments to house overseas models. MC2’s founder, Jean-Luc Brunel, had an apartment there.

But it hasn’t been all private islands and 7,000-acre ranches for the half-billionaire.
