This two-bedroom duplex is within one such 1830s townhouse at 49 King Street, and it’s currently on the market for $1,350,000. While it retains historic details like exposed brick and the original pine plank flooring, the home also underwent a modern renovation that added contemporary-glam touches.

The funky barrel-vaulted ceilings at this Union Square loft set the stage for a truly unique home, which has even been featured in Elle Decor.

Cool Listings, Upper West Side 

Large, high-end penthouses aren’t uncommon on the Upper West Side, neither are outdoor terraces. But the views afforded from this duplex penthouse are something special. An outdoor space spanning the entire length of the main level overlooks the supertall towers along Billionaires’ Row, while other vantages show off all the skyscrapers in the neighborhood. The $4,790,000 home is located at 135 West 70th Street, an Egyptian Revival condo building known as The Pythian, which was designed by famed theater architect Thomas W. Lamb (it’s also where Lady Gaga grew up and where her family still lives).
