Sixteen-year Victoria’s Secret veteran supermodel Adriana Lima may have no problem sauntering down the runway, but things haven’t come as easily for her real estate game. The Brazilian beauty bought a two-bedroom pad in Midtown West for $1.995 million in 2003. Six years later, she married NBA player Marko Jarić and had two children in 2009 and 2012. The next year they tried to offload the Metropolitan Tower apartment for $5.5 million, but after there were no takers, took it off the market. Now that the couple’s split up (they finalized their divorce earlier this year), Lima is giving it another go, this time hoping to get $4.85 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
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.
