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.
The West Village co-op 92 Horatio Street is featuring a duplex apartment up for rent, and it’s got lots of personality. This unit is decked out with dark wood beamed ceilings, two brick fireplaces, and a spiral staircase taking you up to a private roof terrace.

There have been no shortage of quirky co-ops up for sale in this building, but this one is up for rent asking $6,500 a month.
This top-floor two-bedroom condominium at 4 Downing Street in Clinton Hill, we’re told, is “an iconic turn of the century building recently completely reimagined and overhauled as a boutique condominium.” Said overhaul was undertaken in 2015 by Barrett Design and Development on what was previously the indeed-iconic Broken Angel House, once among Brooklyn’s most unique landmarks. Artist Arthur Wood purchased the original tenement building in 1979 for $2,000 and subsequently transformed it into a whimsical, livable sculpture, complete with stained glass windows made from bottles and glass, a cathedral-like glass addition, and brick wings. It was also the backdrop for the documentary “Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.” The two-bedroom unit is on the market for $1.55 million; it was purchased as new construction two years ago for $1.42 million.
In the middle of a lovely cobblestoned block in the coveted West Village, the five-story Federal-style townhouse at 334 West 12th Street was built in 1853, but its charms hold up against its neighbors in the Greenwich Village Historic District and beyond. Asking $6.95 million, the 20-foot-wide single-family townhouse has two entrances, five bedrooms, a rear garden that looks like something out of an Italian villa, a large south-facing terrace with views of the Freedom Tower, and its crowning jewel, a skylit solarium brimming with greenery.
This one-bedroom condo at Soho‘s 118 Wooster Street is offering up plenty of unique features to its next buyer. For one, the 1,250-square-foot interior got a cozy sleeping nook to hold a second bedroom. Then, under 20-foot ceilings, a massive great room, plus a formal bedroom, await. The stairs take you up to a glass atrium, which opens to an 800-square-foot roof deck with a water and electric hookup. For all these indoor and outdoor perks, it’ll cost $2.649 million.
Scale to the top of the historic brick townhouse at 111 East 10th Street in the East Village and you’ll find this charming one-bedroom co-op now on the market for $875,000. The walk-up may not be great, but there are lots of benefits of living on the top floor here. The ceiling has been heightened and expanded to include a row of skylights, and there’s direct access to a private rooftop garden. The unit is part of a unique, coveted cooperative comprised of six 19th century townhouses that sit within the landmarked St. Mark’s Historic District, holding 29 residences total.
On a picture-perfect block in the heart of historic Fort Greene, this brownstone co-op is both lovely and livable–with two bedrooms and plenty of pre-war charm–for under $1 million. Located at 154 Lafayette Avenue and currently listed at $949,000, this quintessential Brooklyn home is only two flights up from the stoop and has the added bonus of a private rooftop deck.
Brooklyn architecture firm Young Projects is known for transforming New York properties in inventive and visually stunning ways–just look at how they upended the traditional townhouse for this Williamsburg project. For their Hudson Street Residence project, the firm took the top three levels of a Tribeca building and created a gorgeous 13,000-square-foot penthouse apartment tied together by interior garden courts and topped with a striking roof garden. A continuous cast aluminum surface–which the firm specially designed for this project–gracefully weaves together each living space of the residence.
Nearly two years after selling her chic Greenwich Village penthouse, Rosie O’Donnell finally has a new NYC home (she spends the majority of her time at her other house in Nyack). According to city records, Rosie dropped $8 million on a triplex penthouse at Midtown East‘s 255 East 49th Street. The uber-modern residence is a sprawling 3,563 square feet and has swanky features like a black granite fireplace in the living room, a huge glass walled television in the master bathroom, a sculptural Guggenheim-inspired staircase, an indoor two-person Swedish sauna, and a giant rooftop terrace with views of the Empire and Chrysler Buildings and the East River.
If you’ve wondered where Josh Hartnett’s been for the past decade, the answer may be in his sprawling Tribeca co-op at 16 Hudson Street, which he just listed for $4.25 million according to LL NYC. Though the corner penthouse looks massive, it’s only one bedroom, which could be why the heartthrob actor-turned-producer decided to sell; his longtime girlfriend Tamsin Egerton is pregnant with their second child.
