The west side of Chelsea is known for its collection of starchitecture projects, and this $9,950,000 penthouse at 520 West 19th Street is not only an architectural feat in itself, but it has views of all the surrounding projects (like Bjarke Ingels’ XI and Thomas Heatherwick’s Lantern House), the entirety of Hudson Yards, and even the Empire State Building. And all of these views can best be enjoyed from the 50-foot-long terrace. The two-floor interior is a sprawling 4,100 square feet and has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and lots of bonus space and storage.

How’s this for views? From both the terrace and the rooftop cabana of a classic Williamsburg loft near the waterfront, you’ll gaze at all five East River bridges, the Manhattan skyline, and a cool birdseye view of Domino Park. The interior of the penthouse at 58 Metropolitan Avenue isn’t too shabby, either. Asking $2,595,000, the three-bedroom apartment has a huge living area with oversized windows on three sides, contemporary finishes, and a private indoor parking spot with an electric charger and storage space.

El Dorado, 300 Central Park West

We’ve gotta hand it to Moby–he has had some killer taste in real estate over the years, from his “tiny but charming” Nolita penthouse to the incredible midcentury house in Westchester he sold for charity. But perhaps the most fabulous place of all was his four-story penthouse at the iconic El Dorado on Central Park West, where he lived from 2005 to 2008. Not only is the sprawling co-op located in the landmarked building’s south tower (it occupies the entire 31st, 32nd, 33rd, and 34th floors), but it boasts four landscaped terraces with sweeping skyline and Central Park views. First reported by the Post, it’s now back on the market for $5,750,000.

This Upper West Side brownstone duplex co-op at 31 West 70th Street, asking $1,968,300, is a confluence of Manhattan apartment dream factors: It’s half a block from Central Park, has a wealth of private outdoor space, and is filled with rich architectural details that keep the cookie-cutter blues far away. The renovated pre-war duplex is currently set up as a two-bedroom home with two and a half baths, but it can easily be expanded to include three bedrooms with plenty of space left to spare.

Roughly a year and a half after it was first listed, Meryl Streep has sold her Tribeca penthouse for $15.8 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. Located in the waterfront River Lofts condominium, the 4,000-square-foot residence has four bedrooms and a landscaped terrace that wraps around three sides of the penthouse. The revered Oscar winner bought the home with her husband, Donald Gummer, for $10.13 million in 2006. It was initially listed for $24.6 million in the summer of 2018. Following a broker switch, the price was slashed to $18.25 million, and it was relisted last August. Listing agent Juliette Janssens of Sotheby’s International Realty—who held the most recent listing with Allison Koffman—told the Journal that despite selling for 36 percent less than the original asking price, the final sale still reflects a “very strong number” for today’s market.

According to the listing for this utterly charming Greenwich Village penthouse loft at 132 West 4th Street, silent film actor John Barrymore lived here a century ago and christened it “The Alchemist’s Corner.” While the silver screen connection adds stardust to its image, a spot atop an 1839 townhouse, a massive dramatic skylight, and a rooftop garden with a heated porch and den make this $7,200 a month rental opportunity magical all on its own.
