A quick montage I did using ChodHound's amazing midtown photo, gives a rough idea of things to come (minus several proposals I'm sure I overlooked).

Penthouse no longer the most expensive

http://www.mercurynews.com/nation-wo...ouse-not-child

Asking price $100 million for NYC penthouse -- not child-safe, owner says

Quote:
NEW YORK—What will $100 million buy you in New York City's real estate market? Apparently, a really good view.
An exclusive listing is offering an octagon-shaped penthouse in midtown Manhattan that boasts three floors of living space, panoramic views of the city, six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a wine room for 1,000 bottles.

And that's not all.

The 8,000-square-foot apartment on West 56th Street has its own elevator and wraparound terraces on three floors. It is possible to see nearly all of the city's bridges from its 135 windows. It is located in CitySpire, a tower that created controversy when it went up in 1988 .............

The asking price reportedly is the highest for any New York City apartment currently on the market. A six-bedroom penthouse at One57, a tower currently going up nearby, is under contract for $90 million.

That's the asking price, it doesn't mean anything. I can set an asking price of $50M for a used pair socks at a garage sale, doesn't mean anyone's gonna pay that much.

That is still probably a $30M-40M apartment, but with One57 blocking it's views of Central Park, there is no way it sells for anywhere even remotely close to $100M.

That's true. I expect everything that is having its view blocked by 157 loose a big chunk of its value and prestige

Some people will, some won't. With buildings in front of you, the view gets more depth.

If you have 100 million, you buy another apartment across the street on a higher floor.
