Jackie Gleason’s Miami Mansion Hits the Auction Block

Click for Full Story

In the mid-1960’s, New Yorkers lost Jackie Gleason to Miami Beach when he moved his TV show there. And there it stayed, to the joy of that city’s economy, for seven years. Top Ten Real Estate Deals writes that “Jackie was one of television’s biggest stars, and bringing him to Miami meant more prestige and more vacationers.”
The climate apparently agreed with Mr. Gleason as he never returned to New York City to live, instead settling in Florida for the rest of his life. He remained comedic even after that life ended, choosing for his tomb’s inscription his TV show’s famous tagline: “And away we go.” But before he went, Gleason bought himself a tremendous mid-century Florida home: 9,250 square feet, including 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a screened pool deck to keep out those pesky tropical insects but let in all that delicious tropical sunshine.
