Given the renovation fever that has swept the city’s historic neighborhoods, it sometimes seems rare to see a home like this one, built at the turn century in a Neo-Gothic style, that retains its grandeur after being designed and remodeled into a picture of 21st century city living perfection. This four-story Prospect Heights townhouse at 577 Carlton Avenue, currently asking $3.495 million, has retained its historic details, while color, texture and inspired design decisions elevate it above many of its more ordinary brownstone Brooklyn neighbors.

When the neo-Gothic Woolworth Building was erected in 1913 as the world’s tallest building, it cost a total of $13.5 million. Now, 104 years and a partial condo conversion later, its massive, seven-story penthouse has hit the market for an exorbitant $110 million. The Wall Street Journal first got wind of the not-yet-public listing, which could be the most expensive sale ever downtown, far surpassing the current $50.9 million record at Chelsea’s Walker Tower. Dubbed the Pinnacle for its location in the 792-foot tower’s iconic green copper crown, the penthouse will encompass 9,710 square feet and boast a private elevator, 24-foot ceilings, a 400-square-foot open observatory, and views in every direction, from the World Trade Center to New Jersey to the East River.

Tin ceilings aren’t uncommon in prewar New York apartments, but they’re usually painted over white. This prewar garden duplex, at the Gramercy Park cooperative 224 East 18th Street, is featuring bold, silver ceilings on its main floor–an original design element of the 1920s townhouse. A more recent renovation transformed the apartment from a two bedroom into a one bedroom with a den/media room downstairs. There’s also access to a private backyard garden. The ask comes in at $1.55 million.

The sleek 910-foot-tall tower at 15 Hudson Yards has held the attention of real estate and skyline watchers since construction began last spring. Just listed for $32 million is penthouse 88B, the first of the building’s four penthouses to arrive on the market. The suitably stunning 5,161-square-foot duplex home sits on the building’s 88th floor near its crown. And even in a city filled with penthouses, several things make this one unique.

Looking for a huge, dramatic living space right in the heart of the East Village? It’s right here, at 175 East 2nd Street, but it’ll cost a cool $10,000 a month.

That’s a ton of space, and all of it is dripping in unique, super trendy details: 11-foot ceilings with the original wooden ceiling beams, exposed brick, a fireplace and a long skylight over a renovated kitchen. Chic furniture and artwork fills all the open living space, and the apartment comes with the option to move into it furnished.

The Osborne, 205 West 57th Street, Phil Jackson

Shortly after taking over as president of the Knicks in 2014, NBA legend Phil Jackson rewarded himself with a gorgeous, historic apartment at The Osborne. But now that he’s left the team (he and the Knicks “mutually parted ways” in June after a disagreement over player Carmelo Anthony‘s status) and lost his $12 million/year contract, he’s decided to also part ways with the Billionaires’ Row residence. Curbed reports that Jackson listed the three-bedroom apartment for $4,950,000, barely above the $4,895,000 that he bought it for.

Seth Meyers seems to be taking a “closer look” at his West Village real estate holdings, as Mansion Global reports that that the “Late Night” host has listed a condo that he owns with his wife Alexi at 302 West 12th Street for $4.5 million. They bought the unit, a lovely little two-bedroom spread, for $3.5 million in 2013, but last summer they dropped $7.5 million on a much larger, five-bedroom co-op at 32 Washington Square West, which, interestingly, was previously owned by actress Mary Louise Parker.

Cool Listings, Greenwich Village

The kitchen may be in the cellar, but this 2,400-square-foot townhouse at 154 West 11th Street in the lovely western reaches of Greenwich Village keeps every inch of interior space clean, bright and airy. At 20 feet wide with three (legit) floors, it’s understandable why so much thought was put into making sure space was used wisely. Built in 1845 and surrounded by its historic brethren in the Greenwich Village Historic District, the three-bedroom home has been lovingly restored and made ready for modern family life from to its walnut-stained oak floors and four wood-burning fireplaces to its charming garden.

You’ll have to go all the way to the northernmost part of New York City to find a 12,000-square-foot mansion on a 16,000-square-foot lot. But here it is, at 3 Point Crescent in Malba, Queens. The sprawling seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home has all sorts of interior flourishes–including plenty of mahogany–and the property comes with direct views of the Whitestone Bridge. There are lots of other perks too, like a seven car driveway, temperature controlled wine room, 40-foot pool and a wood-fired oven in the basement. The entire package is up for grabs at an ask of $8.795 million.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Upper East Side, yorkville

This adorable one-bedroom co-op at 326 East 73rd Street shows what designer talent can do for a small apartment. High ceilings, white oak floors, and a great Upper East Side location don’t hurt matters much, while the stylish and well-appointed kitchen, elegant lighting, and reclaimed wood accents make this space seem like a find indeed. There are also quartz countertops, glass French doors, big closets, and plenty of sun to enjoy, and we’re guessing a new owner will be doing just that, very soon.

More small-space style, this way
