Saudi Prince Nawaf bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud is apparently quite concerned with security. The royal is selling an apartment he owns on New York's Upper West Side, and the Wall Street Journal reports that the 10,500-square-foot triplex in the Heritage at Trump Place features not one, not two, but three bulletproof panic rooms. The "fully automated" apartment, listed for $48.5 million, also has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, six half-bathrooms, a fitness center, a billiards room, a hair salon, a cigar room, a living room that overlooks the Hudson, built-in aquariums, a sushi bar, a six-person Jacuzzi, and outdoor terraces. The behemoth unit used to be six smaller units on the condo building's fifth, sixth, and seventh floors. (More real estate stories.)
