Check Out All of Jeff Bezos’ Monstrous Mansions and Properties

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, is the richest person in the world. His wealth has given him the opportunity to build a large real estate portfolio. He has also donated some of his money to charitable causes. He recently made headlines for generously donating $33 million to a college scholarship program focused on helping immigrants taken to the United States illegally when they were children (known as the Dreamers).

As a result of Bezos’ success, he is able to enjoy luxurious living. Here’s a breathtaking look at some of Jeff Bezos’ monstrous mansions and properties.

It’s no surprise Bezos has a home in Manhattan, considering the New York metro area is where most of the world’s ultra-high-net-worth individuals live. The CEO owns not one, but three connected apartments in Manhattan’s Century building. The home is located along Central Park West and was purchased in 1999 for $7.7 million from former Sony Music executive Tommy Mottola, reports Fast Company.
