    That kitchen is horrifically cheap looking. Nice view.

    Real penthouse in a real city.

    I’m not sure if the developer got some super deal on the kitchen cabinets, granite and appliances. When I owned at the Ritz Residences in DC, we had the exact same stuff. It was ‘good’ developer quality. My issue is that was something like 12 or 14 years ago. For a $23M apartment, the kitchen should be something much better than developer standard.

      I believe the term you are looking for is “contractor grade” and yeah, they could have put a little more effort and money into the kitchen. The granite looks like Oooba Tooba also, one of the cheapest you can buy.

        Normally, I’d call it ‘builder grade’, but that was a no no.
        As I told, almost daily, it’s the Ritz.
        Common apartment finishing’s (kitchens and baths) were referred to as developer’s grade (I guess it sounds better). Every bathroom had the exact same tile, the kitchens were all the same (a few units had white cabinets), the ceilings were low and the rooms were small. The amenities and security, were top notch. The level of pretentiousness, was PAINFUL.
        Try installing a clothes line on your outdoor patio. The police were called every time I hung clothes on it to dry.
        And yes, $23M for this apartment is insane. However, for many reasons, I bet this apartment will still fetch $18M.

    I know it’s “The Ritz”
    And I know its New York, (well battery park)

    But still, 20million for 4300 sq feet?
    I do not think so.
    And Ye GODS does that kitchen look cheap. I mean, Its “Ok” .. For perhaps a 150k house in the suburbs., NOT for some Penthouse in NYC!
    Cheap cheap cheap all around!

    I tell you what, hotels have come along way to total independence, the kitchen is a ballroom in itself. Most of all, I love the view from the windows, you would never think it from the exterior of the building.

    Anyone who buys this is a sucker indeed

    I just hope whoever buys this for its “amazing” Ritz Carlton amenities finds out about them trying to sell the place and get out.

    I was gonna say $23 million to live in Battery Park City??? I didn’t realize this area is in Manhattan. But still that’s a lot to not be in a coveted area like Park Avenue or Fifth Avenue or Central Park West. Its an ok apartment with nice views though but the quality is a little cheap looking. I think this should be more like $5 million though. Maybe $10 million just cause it is the Penthouse and it has nice views. But it definitely shouldn’t cost $23 million.
