The Legacy, 157 East 84th Street THEW, combined duplex townhouse, duplex interior

We think it was Joan Collins who said the key to a successful marriage is separate bathrooms. Well Joan, we think you’d be pleased with this $13.5 million sprawling unit at the Legacy. 157 East 84th Street Unit THEW offers a unique opportunity: the chance to take 2 duplex townhouse units and put them together for a ginormous 6BR/6BA, 8,648-square-foot Manhattan mansion. A Manhattan mansion with two private outdoor spaces, tons of storage, and bathrooms for everyone.

Let’s just cut to the chase. Someone, somewhere along the way, had the brilliant idea (and a bank account to match) to combine three adjacent apartments at Plaza 400 into this sprawling 2,800-square-foot home. So if city living with suburban-sized rooms is on your bucket list and you’ve got $3.8 million to spare, look no further than this 5BR/4BA apartment located at 400 East 56th Street.

See the end result

50 East 79th St. 16D

When we think of the Upper East Side, this home at 50 E.79th Street is exactly what we imagine: a grand residence with classic lines and Central Park views.

You will feel special from the moment you walk into the marble floored-entrance gallery of this 4BR/4BA corner unit in a Brown & Gunther designed building.  The formal floor plan gives each exquisite room its just due while still allowing for comfortable entertaining. Though tucked away in their own private little world, each section of the expansive living space is easily accessible from the main gallery.

508 East 6th Street, duplex apartment, air conditioning, recording studio, under one million

We’re going to take a quick detour from our mega-expensive, extravagant homes, and spotlight a pad that we think demonstrates the heart of New York City. New York is artsy and quirky and marches to the beat of its own drum. People walk the streets in all types of personal style, restaurants like S’mac and Peanut Butter & Co that are dedicated to one food attract patrons from all over. This city is one of a kind. So, we’re going to show you a one-of-a-kind apartment in a little neighborhood we like to call the East Village.

190 West Street #8 Living Room

When you hear about a Greenpoint apartment for sale, “loft” might not be what first pops into your head.  But apartment 8 at 190 West Street, currently listed for $1.825 million through CORE, will make you a believer in Brooklyn loft living.

The 1,364-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment has all of the loft-like charms you’d hope for–steel support columns, nine-inch oak plank flooring, and exposed wood ceiling beams, duct work, and pipes.  It also feels twice its size thanks to 16-foot ceilings, 40 feet of street-facing frontage, eight-foot-high windows, a large skylight, and an open layout that can easily accommodate a two-bedroom conversion.

Don’t miss the rest of this Brooklyn beauty

Bridge Tower Place, 401 East 60th Street

Remember the Sesame Street segment called “One of These Things is Not Like the Others”? (If you don’t, click here for a reminder). Well, it’s exactly what came to mind as soon as we saw photos of this gorgeous Upper East Side apartment located in Bridge Tower Place at 401 East 60th Street. The lush details in every room conjure up the French baroque style of Versailles with its lavish decoration and romantic elegance. Every room that is, except the beautiful but sorely out of place kitchen.

See why the kitchen doesn’t seem to belong

flatiron lofts, WXY Studio, million dollar listing, incredible nyc apartments, incredible nyc lofts, cool nyc lofts, bright nyc lofts, 40 West 22nd Street

Describing this Flatiron loft and ‘spacious’ and ‘bright’ somehow seems like an understatement, but there’s no denying that even just looking at this 4,000-square-feet home will make you fee sun-soaked. Up for one lucky renter to scoop up, this beautiful WXY Studio-restored space at 40 West 22nd Street is perfect for an artist or art collector hang their pieces and comes with plenty of space to host fabulous art parties and lots of friends. Though you should make sure the two Emmy Awards in the media room are put away…

45 Christopher Street 8AG

Celebrity sightings are not uncommon in the West Village and along the quiet, leafy street named Christopher filled with charming homes owned by the likes of the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman and comedienne Amy Sedaris. But residents here take it all in stride, and that low-key vibe permeates the walls of this beautifully appointed 3-bedroom, 2-bath condo at 45 Christopher Street.

This corner unit’s original beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and light-filled rooms offer a perfect setting to the city views greeting you to the north and west.

Battery Park City, Cool Listings

ritz carlton west street penthouse collection

Last week we reported on the plans of two industrious property owners at the Ritz-Carlton in Battery Park City who were pooling their three penthouses in hopes of making a record-breaking $118.5 million sale. Hearsay no more because it looks like the listing for the space has officially emerged, and will be managed by none other than power broker Ryan Serhant at Nestseekers.

Aptly dubbed ‘The Penthouse Collection‘, the combined 39th and 40th floor spaces owned by Randall Yanker and Gary Segal offer up a staggering duplex totaling 15,434 square feet — or in layman’s terms (or is that possible with something this size?) 12 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms with “the potential” to extend both those numbers further. 20-foot ceilings, three kitchens, four terraces, and multiple living areas also means its a good thing that hotel amenities include housekeeping.

All the photos you’ve been waiting for this way

Setai Wall Street, Alex Birkenstock apartment, apartment interior, Steve Harivel design, walls of windows, 40 Broad Street

Alex Birkenstock, heir to the shoe brand worn in colleges across the U.S., is selling his Setai Wall Street penthouse and he’s asking $12.995 million. If you’re into movies like Back to the Future or the episodes of Family Guy where Stewie and Brian hop in the time machine, you’ll get a kick out of this amazing apartment. With the help of Steve Harivel, one of the designers behind the famous Soho House hotel, this 3,500-square-foot pad seamlessly blends modern technology and vintage charm… and the best part is the furniture is included. If you’re already screaming like you got called to the front in The Price is Right, just wait until you see what this place has in store.
