This $3.25M Gramercy two-bedroom comes with expansion potential–and a key to the park

This two-bedroom apartment on a high floor at 50 Gramercy Park North, asking $3,250,000, is spacious enough in its current form. Making use of a sprawling great room, a third large bedroom can be created, adding value and livability. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out over the classic Manhattan neighborhood. Even better: Proximity to Gramercy Park means lucky residents get coveted keys to the private park.

Late billionaire’s ex lists spectacular Stanhope penthouse with five terrace gardens for $65M

The 7,067 square-foot penthouse at 995 Fifth Avenue owned by Claude Wasserstein, ex wife of the late Bruce Wasserstein, former chair of investment firm Lazard, was just listed for the first time since a brief stint on the market in 2010. Wasserstein, who died in 2009, was the brother of the late playwright Wendy Wasserstein. The 11-room, five-bedroom duplex atop the Rosario Candela-designed former Stanhope hotel was purchased by Ms. Wasserstein for $34.8 million in 2008, The Real Deal reports. In addition to five garden-like wraparound terraces crafted by landscape designer Madison Cox, "epic NYC views" and 72 linear feet of Central Park frontage, the full-service building offers top-drawer amenities like a gym and a spa. But does all of that add up to $65 million–$9,285 per square foot?

This $825K Turtle Bay condop is a greenhouse and a treehouse with a little bit of loft

This unique condop (financially a co-op with condo-like rules) at 310 East 46th Street in Manhattan's genteel east Midtown Turtle Bay district is one of those apartments that makes you go, "hmm..." While it has plenty of eye appeal with a stunning glass atrium wall, Chrysler and Empire State Building views, 12-foot vaulted ceilings and custom teak built-ins, the current layout makes it hard to transcend long, narrow studio status, which makes the $825,000 ask seem like less of a deal. What's here, though, is a sight to behold; and there's potential. And amenities!
