Even though Bernard Madoff's Montauk home went for above its asking price, the U.S. Marshals decided to lower the price of the Ponzi schemer's Manhattan penthouse by $1 million to $8.9 million.

The home is a duplex on East 64th Street and neighbors include Matt Lauer—maybe some Wall Street bonus baby will want to trade up to a den of infamy!
