Joan Warburgs' 43-acre estate on John Street is on the market for $11 million — 8 approved lots.

One of my mother's close friends,she was a remarkable woman, though, on the few times we met, I carefully avoided her causes.

A friend notes that, if rural back country Greenwich, 1745 housing isn't your thing, you can lob at an offer at her apartment at 34 E. 70th Street, asking $32 million.
