This two-bedroom penthouse at 205 East 69th Street in the Upper East Side certainly has no dark side: The apartment’s walls are lined with pre-war Deco-style casement windows and doors, just outside which you’ll find spacious wrap-around terraces in every direction. Asking $3,295,000, this uptown oasis has cultural bragging rights as well: It was the New York City home of developer, preservationist and visionary David Wolkowsky, who is considered to be the most important transformational influence in modern-day Key West, Fla., and credited with creating the island’s reputation as a quirky bohemian oasis and tourist destination. Wolkowsky, who was known as “Mr. Key West,” passed away last year at the age of 99.
