When an apartment at the iconic Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West hits the market, a certain kind of discerning buyer takes notice. There’s a mansion-sized 8,000-square-foot combo unit available in the coveted building for $58,000,000, so this available half-floor two-bedroom residence seems like a downright steal at $13,450,000. With interiors designed by Axel Vervoordt, the 26th-floor unit spans 2,367 square feet, with the building’s signature high ceilings and, best of all, views that sweep out over Central Park, the Hudson River, and beyond.

In 2017, 6sqft featured this charming Village townhouse at 118 West 12th Street, owned by Mitchell Lichtenstein, the son of famous pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, then listed for $25,000,000. A stunning balance between a historic 1840s home and a perfectly-curated modern art mansion made it a rare residence as unique as its former owner. The 24.5-foot-wide Greek revival home is once again on the market–this time for $29,950,000. A new $7,000,000 renovation has made the dramatic dwelling more triple-mint than its former impossibly chic version, much like the pricey neighborhood that surrounds it.

A quintessential Upper East Side townhouse with all the trimmings always makes a few waves when it hits the market–especially if it has a Hollywood connection. This 4,275-square-foot brownstone at 154 East 74th Street was once home to Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher. According to the NY Post, Reynolds’ son, Todd Fisher, recalls fond memories of growing up in the Manhattan townhouse–specifically the garden-level screening room, where the family spent many an evening–in his 2018 memoir. Asking $11.5 million, the four-story home has newly-renovated interiors that complement vintage craftsman details as well as luxurious additions like a wine cellar, fully-stocked gym, and landscaped rear patio.

This elegant fifth-floor co-op at 450 East 52nd Street has a rare level of star cachet; Swedish-born Hollywood screen legend Greta Garbo called the pre-war apartment home for 40 years, from 1954 until her death in 1990. The three-bedroom Sutton Place co-op last changed hands in 2017, when it was purchased by John and Marjorie McGraw. John is the former chairman of the publishing house McGraw-Hill. The couple is a fan of Garbo, which may be the reason they purchased the apartment for $8.5 million–$2.5 million over its $5.95 million ask. The east side aerie is now back on the market for $7.25 million.
