Large, high-end penthouses aren’t uncommon on the Upper West Side, neither are outdoor terraces. But the views afforded from this duplex penthouse are something special. An outdoor space spanning the entire length of the main level overlooks the supertall towers along Billionaires’ Row, while other vantages show off all the skyscrapers in the neighborhood. The $4,790,000 home is located at 135 West 70th Street, an Egyptian Revival condo building known as The Pythian, which was designed by famed theater architect Thomas W. Lamb (it’s also where Lady Gaga grew up and where her family still lives).
Currently on the market for $19.8 million, this contemporary waterfront home in Quogue is giving off some very cool Miami vibes, from its curving architecture to its crisp white and bright blue interiors. The 13,200-square-foot mansion has eight bedrooms and a whopping 16 bathrooms, along with a gym, theater, and billiards room. There are also generous ocean- and bay-facing decks and an oversized Gunite pool with a spa and pool house.

This Dumbo penthouse has been featured in over a dozen design publications, including Architectural Digest, Dwell, and The New York Times. And it’s for good reason. Designed by General Assembly, there are interesting details everywhere: Reclaimed oak beams from 19th-century barns serve as the floors; a glam built-in bar doubles as a pet-food station; and there are concrete walls and Flavor Paper wallpaper throughout. In addition, there are two balconies and a massive roof deck with views of the Manhattan Bridge and downtown skyline. Located at 102 Gold Street, the two-bedroom condo is asking $2,450,000.

When this Upper West Side co-op at 170 West 89th Street was recently gutted, the renovation exposed the original brick walls that had been sealed for years. Now, the 834-square-foot, two-bedroom home, on the market for $1,050,000, stands out for these old-world architectural details mixed with stylish, contemporary additions such as built-in shelving and modern appliances. Another perk is that it’s just two blocks from Central Park.
