In 2013, Gawker reported
on Schmidt's $15 million New York City duplex, described as a
"sex penthouse," which is outfitted with a wet bar,
soundproofed walls, and a 3,300 square foot terrace. The duplex does
not have a doorman, a curious feature for the W. 21st St. abode
located in the ritziest enclave of Manhattan.
