This utterly charming “penthouse” on the third/top floor of a pale mint green townhouse at 262 East 7th Street has the good fortune of being on one of the neighborhood’s most beloved blocks. This particular corner of Alphabet City–across from the Gaudi-esque Flowerbox Building condo and home to a landmarked row of rare historic townhomes–is one those New York City secrets hidden in plain sight. Asking $1.35 million, this two-bedroom co-op doesn’t skimp on modern style or comfort. And there’s the added bonus of a lovely private terrace.
Offered by the original owners, this truly one-of-a-kind penthouse atop Williamsburg’s Mill Building has been dubbed the “House on the Roof,” but it could easily be mistaken as a luxurious mountaintop chalet. The red-roofed two-bedroom penthouse is wrapped in glass that opens to a massive rooftop terrace complete with a full kitchen setup. And it’s now asking $2.85 million.
This beautifully-designed penthouse loft at 50 Walker Street in Tribeca has a few secrets hidden within its classic loft proportions. The most impressive of the $3.35 million co-op’s features is a massive 1,500-square-foot landscaped roof terrace accessed through a window-wrapped solarium, all with jaw-dropping lower Manhattan views.
Big numbers are the order of the day at the palatial penthouse atop Pritzker Prize-winning Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s first residential building in New York City, 565 Broome Soho. On the market now for $40.5 million, the newly-minted four-bedroom duplex spans 6,655 square feet with a 2,500 square-foot roof terrace. The four-bedroom condo above one of two 30-story glass towers has the kind of jaw-dropping 360-degree views you’d expect. Less expected is the fact that you can experience them from a private heated outdoor rooftop pool.

After three years on the market, Mike Myers‘ Soho penthouse has gone into contract. The actor bought the duplex at 72 Mercer Street back in 2007 for just under $8 million and renovated to its current contemporary state. He first listed in 2015 for $17 million, shortly after adding another unit in the building to the sale, upping the combo price to $21.5 million. This past November, Myers tried yet again, relisting the original penthouse unit for the reduced price of $14 million, and it looks like that did the trick as it’s now in contract.
This full-floor penthouse is located within the former attic of one of New York’s early skyscrapers, the Liberty Tower. Built at 55 Liberty Street in 1909 by Chicago architect Henry Ives Cobb, the Gothic Revival-style office building was the tallest in the world when completed. It was home to FDR’s law offices and, later, to German spies plotting to prevent American from joining WWI. Architect Joseph Pell Lombardi converted the tower to co-ops in 1979, with the attic unit retaining vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and 29 windows offering views across the city. It’s now listed for $2.695 million.
After supermodel Gigi Hadid bought a condo at Noho’s trendy new building 10 Bond Street in July 2016, she was often seen leaving the building with then-new flame Zayn Malik. But the couple, dubbed ZiGi. Malik by their swarms of fans, announced their breakup last week, and it looks like the pop star was well prepared to begin his bachelor lifestyle, as the Post reports that just days after the news went public, Malik closed on a $10.69 million Soho penthouse at 63 Greene Street.
This Flatiron duplex has it all: a dramatic double-height living room, open staircases, angular ceilings, big windows, a balcony, sky bridge and private roof deck. Over a sprawling 2,300 square feet it holds two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. And it comes from 131 Fifth Avenue, a 23-unit cooperative built in 1904 that was once part of the original Lord & Taylor department store. All signs of retail are now gone, and you’ve got this ultra-hip penthouse asking $3.95 million in its place.
Back in July, 6sqft reported that the elusive Josh Hartnett (“Black Hawk Down,” “Pearl Harbor”) had surfaced to list his sprawling Tribeca co-op at 16 Hudson Street for $4.25 million. Though the corner penthouse, which Hartnett bought in 2004 for $2.4 million, looks massive, it’s only got one bedroom. The heartthrob actor-turned-producer just had a second child with longtime girlfriend Tamsin Egerton, so we’re guessing more space is key. The 1,965-square-foot apartment with One World Trade Center views recently sold for $3.55 million, according to Mansion Global.
Actress Stephanie March, best known for her role in “Law & Order SVU,” and her husband, Daniel Benton, just picked up a penthouse for $34.62 million at the Shephard, a converted condo building in the West Village. As the Wall Street Journal reported, the couple is combining two units at the building at 275 West 10th Street to create a five-bedroom spread spanning 6,836 square feet. The apartment boasts a 3,451 square foot terrace as well as oversized windows, barrel-vaulted ceilings and solid hardwood oak floors.
