Well, everyone in the whole wide world knows this place and a lot of things come to mind upon hearing ‘New York City’. The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, The Empire State Building and a whole lot more.
Being described as the cultural capital of the world and the most populated city in the United States, it’s become a really expensive city to live in but if money is no object then there is a Penthouse that might be of interest to you. In fact this is the most expensive penthouse in the city and one of the most expensive in the entire world.
With an asking price of $100 million, this penthouse is located a the top of the CitySpire building, overlooking Central Park.
This luxurious property occupies the 73rd, 74th and 75th floors of the high rise building making up approximately 8000 square feet.
With its great interiors and carefully master-planned finish, the property boasts a total of six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a media room, a dining room that can accommodate 20 individuals, a gallery and a conference room.
And of course you would want your master suite to occupy an entire floor right? Well the entire 75th floor is dedicated to the master’s suite. How incredible is that!?
You will also have access to your own private internal elevator that moves between your property’s three levels in addition to the main one.
If you’re feel tired and stressed after a long day ‘living the dream’, you can just go down one level to the 72nd floor because there is an additional staff apartment alongside a wine cellar that can house 1,000 bottles.
The tower, by the way, includes a fitness center with a 50-foot pool, a 24-hour doorman and a garage.
Buying a property is not just all about the number of bedrooms, the interior, the amenities etc because sometimes it all boils down to one aspect – how good is the view?
Well, you can’t really beat this because your view would be of the entire Manhattan island. How epic is that?!
Well, if you have the money and you would like to experience and own the best things this life has to offer, why not consider owning this piece of NYC?
Remember, we only live once in this world so we should get the most out of it.

This might be the wrong thing for a friend of Rolls-Royce to say, but: I never aspired to owning one.
Don’t get me wrong, I love everything Rolls-Royce stands for: The luxury, the fine attention to detail, the brand, the exclusivity. It is all desirable. Highly desirable. But I never wanted to buy a car that I had to be driven in. As a motor-sport enthusiast it’s important for me to be behind the wheel.
It is funny how wrong one person can be. At the unveiling of the new Ghost Series II I had the rare chance to drive a Phantom Drop Head. Rolls-Royce played their trump card and ordered the rare UK sun to come out just as I got the keys to the car (for want of a better word).
The moment I sat in the driver’s seat I realised my perceptions were very wrong. The ergonomics were clearly set out for the driver. The driving position worked. A few swift smooth adjustments and I felt totally at home.
The key pushed in and the stop start button jumped the Phantom into life. The door closed at the touch of a button. And off I went, effortlessly gliding out of the grand Chichester driveway at the home of Rolls-Royce in West Sussex.
Power was on tap but, as expected, was deliverable in the smoothest, most linear way possible. No clunking, no stutters, no torque steer. Just automotive perfection. The side roads were no issue. A large car, yes, but even in the face of oncoming traffic, including all manner of lorries, it was not daunting. I felt a sense of purpose, even a sense of authority. The rutted side roads of the West Sussex countryside may as well have been the smooth race surface of the Goodwood motor circuit.
The quality of the leather was unparalleled, the noise was heavenly in its nonexistence, the clarity of the sound system was crystal clear even with the roof down, the power was smooth and ample, acceleration rapid yet subtle, the controls perfectly placed both visually and functionally. But the breaks were the most surprising aspect of the car. The car stopped. It really stopped. Given its size and ease of acceleration, I feared it would struggle to put down the anchors. But it really excelled without making you feel like you were going through the windscreen, it just gracefully came to a very quick stop.
The driving experience is parallel to the chauffeured experience, except you actually get to enjoy the ecstasy of driving the finest automotive machinery in the world. I only drove for seven miles, but those seven miles were life changing.
I have to now go back and re-evaluate my top 5 dream car list. I can assure you a Rolls-Royce is now high up in that list. I now just have to drive the Wraith and the Ghost to decide which one I want! I look forward to it with great excitement.
