The grand apartment that served as “the Green Goblin’s lair” in all three Spider-Man movies is back on the market for $1,999,000. In addition to the Hollywood cache, the triplex penthouse at 5 Tudor City Place has 18-foot ceilings, views of the Chrysler Building and One Vanderbilt, a wrapping cast-iron staircase, and a private roof terrace.
This pre-war triplex penthouse, listed for $2.85 million, sits atop the Murray Hill apartment complex known as Windsor Tower at 5 Tudor City Place where “Scarface,” “The Godfather,” and “Spider-Man” were filmed; a nearly identical penthouse unit can be seen onscreen as the home of Spider-Man’s green nemesis, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin in the popular movie and yet another penthouse was featured in both Woody Allen’s “Bullets Over Broadway” and “The Godfather: Part III.” But you don’t need Hollywood cachet to appreciate 18-foot ceilings, a wall of casement windows overlooking the East River, a wood-burning fireplace, or a dramatic staircase that curves its way up to an intimate terrace.
Three floors of charm, this way
If you want an apartment that will truly bowl people over, and you have millions to spare, look no further than this penthouse unit at 5 Tudor City Place in Turtle Bay (h/t Curbed). Massive windows, soaring ceilings, and a private terrace with griffins and gargoyles will definitely impress. The seller is Gordon Bowen, founder of the big-time advertising firm mcgarrybowen. He’s unloading his Don Draper-worthy penthouse to the tune of $7.2 million.
