Society couple Pamela Farkas and Andrew Paul have finally found a buyer for their co-op at 820 Park Avenue.

The duo placed their property on the market last September, and it looks like Wall Street exec Matthew Cherwin, who was recently named co-head of JPMorgan’s Global Credit, Securitized Products and Public Finance, and his wife, Wendy Cherwin, handed over $22 million for the digs. The interiors of the duplex are definitively Upper East Side, and the residence boasts five bedrooms and 180-feet of Park Avenue frontage.

In New York, time is money, and so is square footage. As a result, hotel rooms are some of the most expensive in the country, out of the reach of many. But a number of NYC hotels have begun to pack luxury design into tiny quarters, lowering the cost and making for some beautiful rooms.

At the forefront of this small space sensation? The YOTEL, located right in the heart of NYC, and hip kids’ haven, The Jane.

After nearly six months on the market, Jon Stryker’s luxurious Central Park West penthouse has finally found its buyer. The penthouse changed hands this week for $42 million, falling $6 million short of the ask.

Stryker originally purchased the historic Prasada triplex for $12.8 million in 2002, and he took to renovating the 5,600-square-foot space shortly after with the help of Shelton, Mindel & Associates (Stryker is a trained architect himself). Over the years, the updated design has garnered plenty of accolades, including a spread in Architectural Digest, and in 2010, it nabbed the coveted AIA award for ‘Interior Architecture’.

Manhattan is known for hosting more than a handful of the world’s most luxurious homes — many of which are perched hundreds if not thousands of feet above ground. Though few folks will ever get to see the interior of anything higher than their 5-story walk-up, we’re offering up a look into how New York’s loftiest live.

From the “smallest” to the tallest, take a peek into the penthouses of 10 of Manhattan’s supertall condos ahead. And just to give you a little more context, the Empire State Building soars 1,250 feet high.

It’s a tall, tall world

Back in 2009, Graham Hill purchased two apartments at 150 Sullivan Street with the express purpose of showing that people could have everything they need using less stuff and space. Rather than hiring an architect, the eco-entrepreneur, TED-Talk alum, and founder of Treehugger.com, decided to kickstart a competition to find his unique one-size-fits-all design. What turned up was an innovative transforming apartment filled with brilliant space-efficient features like sliding walls, hidden storage, and multi-tasking furniture. Though Hill’s ‘Life Edited‘ apartment measures an ultra tiny 420-square-feet, the elegant, high-tech space still manages to pack in all the amenities of a home of more than twice its size.

How many people can you pack into 420 sq ft?
