    I like it, although the view isn’t the greatest.

    I mostly like it. I don’t think I’m overly fond of the layout. I’ve never liked the idea of rooms being passageways to other rooms, and here the dining room is the passageway to the two thirds of the apartment. I do love all the terraces, and the decor is beautiful; it’s formal without being frumpy. It was clearly done by a skilled professional decorator. The love the various pieces of art scattered around. There’s just the right amount of it to keep it feeling special. I’m trying to decide if the hand on the table in picture 4 is a Rodin or not.

    I agree with Grrrowler about the layout; far from perfect.
    It’s hard to see where the actual entrance is for this place – it is on the bottom (Entry gallery) or is it in the middle by the stairs.

    Decorating/furnishing is nice, looks formal enough without being uncomfortable.
    But 25 million, deary me, that’s a LOT!
    You can have a (complete) townhouse close to Central Park for that kind of money…

      The Park Avenue address alone is worth a million dollars. Throw in a well-maintained pre-war full-service building with a co-op board to keep out the riffraff and the price skyrockets. This place is a penthouse with massive terraces, so that adds to the price. Personally, I would prefer something on Central Park South or 5th Avenue but property along upper Park still commands ridiculous prices.

        Yeah I thought that too. Park Avenue; the fact that I know that name says enough.
        Kenny posted 2 townhouses some days ago, rather have on of those than this one. Don’t get me wrong, this one is very nice, but I rather have my own ‘true’ home.
