When young real estate scion and New York Observer owner Jared Kushner wed young real estate scion and reality TV sidekick Ivanka Trump, the gossip pages were filled with speculation about the guest list, the location, the gown, etc. Us? We were more concerned with the fate of Kushner's $3.225 million duplex at 21 Astor Place, which he bought in the spring of 2009. A bride never likes shacking up in her husband's former bachelor pad, even if that pad is a lofty 2,000-square-foot stunner in one of the neighborhood's most glorious buildings. And a bride always gets her way.

Lately the power couple has been spotted around town apartment hunting, so we knew it was only a matter of time, and now's as good a time as any. The Kushner-Trump residence just hit the market for $4.1 million, through the same Sotheby's broker that sold the 2BR/2.5BA condo to Kushner back in '09. Talk about pressure! If she doesn't get them that desired profit, The Donald might force her to watch every episode of Celebrity Apprentice. So where's J-Vanka headed next?
Here's the floorplan for the duplex. Worth the bumped-up price?
