Imagine this: You and your spouse have both been home for three hours, but neither one of you knows the other is there because your home is that big. It’s a “problem” most New Yorkers can’t fathom, but for one Brooklyn couple it’s encouraged them to relist their 11,000-square-foot triplex for $32 million, making it the borough’s most expensive condo listing ever. Stuart and Claire Leaf originally listed their home in May, but then took it off the market in February after getting cold feet about moving.
As the Wall Street Journal reports, “The apartment is a combination of no less than nine units spanning the 10th, 11th and 12th floors of the waterfront condo One Brooklyn Bridge Park.” It includes six bedrooms, two deeded parking spaces, a 3,500-bottle wine room, a gym with a rock-climbing wall, a screening room, and a 75-foot-long terrace.

There’s a $2.4 million pad at 50 Bridge Street in DUMBO just waiting to show off its spectacular architecture and indescribable views. This 2,200 square-foot triplex loft has it all, including a private roof deck with views of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, and the East River, all in one hot neighborhood.

There’s a reason the kid in this painting is smiling with arms wide open, and it’s because he’s welcoming you into the coolest pad in the Upper East Side Historic District. This two-bedroom triplex at 18 East 63rd Street sold for just $497,000 in 2011. But after an extensive renovation, it’s back on the market with all the right bells and whistles, asking $1.15 million.

Let’s face it, with spring right around the corner (yes, it is coming) some of us may be feeling a little less than excited to shed those extra layers of clothing. But this impeccably renovated triplex at 726 Carroll Street in Park Slope is more than ready to show off its beautiful “nearly-bare” self. Even without staging of any kind, its amazing combination of elegant original details and tasteful modern appointments add up to a stunning four-bedroom residence.

Joan Rivers’ Upper East Side triplex penthouse, where she lived for 25 years, is opulent to say the least, with a huge Louis XIV-inspired ballroom, a bordello-esque master bedroom and gilded details galore. And we wouldn’t expect any less from the late, great comedienne, who once said of her lavish Spencer Condominium apartment at 1 East 62nd Street, “It’s what Marie Antoinette would have done, if she had money,” and described the décor as “Louis XIV meets Fred and Ginger.”
After Rivers’ daughter Melissa inherited her mother’s apartment in October, it’s now officially hit the market for $28 million, reports the Daily News.

Desperate times call for desperate measures? This dazzling former home to eccentric stock investor Martin Zweig has just received a near 50 percent price cut by the late investor’s widow, Barbara Zweig, who is now asking a mere $63 million. The 41st floor co-op at the Pierre first hit the market in 2013 for what would have been a record-breaking $125 million, but the home didn’t sell—even after being slashed to $95 million in December 2013. Now it looks like Zweig just wants to rid herself of the property which occupies the top three levels of the Pierre.
The penthouse is the highest prewar co-op apartment in Manhattan, meaning not only do you have views of the skyline, but you’re also part of the skyline. But that’s not to discount the 360-degree vistas of the city, which include all of Central Park. So, will someone bite at $63 mill?

This one-and-a-half-bedroom Windsor Terrace loft on Prospect Park West has quite a few perks, including a private entrance and gated parking. Buyers looking to get near the park will love this 1,300-square-foot, open-concept triplex. And best of all, it’s asking $899,000.

An 8,000-square-foot Tribeca triplex with a 45-square-foot entertaining space, an original Keith Haring mural, cast iron columns, soaring arched windows and 26+ foot coffered ceilings is not such a hard sell. So we were not surprised to see that this palatial pad sold for the asking price of $10 million according to city records. Located in the historic American Thread Building at 260 West Broadway, this regal home combines the privacy of townhouse living with the security and services of a fully staffed building. When it hit the market back in May we were seriously swooning over its museum-like feel and impressive art collection. But that’s not all…

Designer Amy Lau recently completed an impressive mid-century triplex in NYC’s downtown neighborhood of Tribeca. The apartment belongs to Michael Hirtenstein, a high-rolling telecom mogul, who, upon seeing it, knew he had to make the massive space his own. The apartment was originally purchased by Mr. Hirtenstein for $16.5 million dollars as three separate units before he combined them into one massive apartment for an unknown amount of money.
This gorgeously designed home spells luxury in every detail and features exquisite furnishings throughout. Combining pieces from bespoke, mid-century modern and contemporary designers, this space tells a unique story represented by many points of view.

Kim Kardashian checked out this penthouse at Delos Living’s eco-friendly building at 66 East 11th Street back in August when it was listed for $50 million, but we guess she wasn’t sold by the handcrafted “floating” metal staircase and beautiful glass atrium ceiling. Or maybe its health-centric amenities, including vitamin C-infused showers, circadian rhythm lighting, posture supporting floors, and a built-in herbarium, were too much for her. Another theory is that she didn’t want to share the spotlight with celeb neighbors Leonardo DiCaprio and New Age guru Deepak Chopra. Whatever the case may be, though, she surely missed out, as the 7,693-square-foot Greenwich Village triplex just dropped its price by $10 million, now listed for $39.8 million.
