On one of the Upper West Side’s loveliest historic blocks, the ornate 12-story Beaux-Arts building at 171 West 71st Street known as the Dorilton is an icon of Gilded Age Manhattan living. This distinctive penthouse duplex is as grand as you’d imagine, with four bedrooms, a multi-level planted terrace, and a kitchen on each floor. Asking $7,800,000, we’re guessing this capacious co-op is a two-unit combo, with an elevator serving both floors in addition to a grand stair winding its way between them. Both levels of the duplex have dazzling city views.

This 1,000-square-foot studio possesses a unique floor plan highlighted by 8-foot corner windows and Carnegie Hall views. The 19th-century co-op building at 205 West 57th Street, known as the Osborne, is located on Billionaires’ Row, and the historic building has seen its share of famous residents, including the unit just across the hall.

Iconic wearable women’s fashion designer Adrienne Vittadini has just listed the Upper East Side apartment she and her husband Gigi (full name Gianluigi) purchased in 1986. Asking $7,500,000, the two-bedroom co-op at 1115 Fifth Avenue has amazing views of Central Park and the Reservoir from four rooms. The home’s interiors project a quiet Manhattan elegance, complementing the couple’s vast collection of art and furniture. Though a painstaking renovation resulted in peerless finishes like 24-karat gold leaf columns and luxurious textiles, it’s the view that gets the most attention, as the retired designer told the New York Times: “I really wanted the outdoors to dominate the indoors. I didn’t want anything to clash with that or impact the view.”

Trophy pad alert: A 12,557-square-foot penthouse in Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street just hit the market, asking for a skyscraping $175,000,000. The duplex Billionaires’ Row condo spans the 107th and 108th floor of what is to date the Western Hemisphere’s tallest residential tower. It’s a tower filled with superlatives–including the world’s highest residence, a $250 million triplex just a few floors above. If this two-story sky mansion gets its asking price, it could be New York City’s second-biggest residential sale ever.
