New York’s $100 million apartment

Big things are happening in the Big Apple. We’re talking things with nine figures. The most expensive apartment in New York has just been sold for a staggering 100.5 million dollars.

Located at 157 West 57th Street, the luxury high-rise is a part of ‘Billionaires’ Row’. Occupying the building’s 89th and 90th floors, the penthouse spans a total of 10,923 square feet, nearly four times the size of the average new American home.

The anonymous buyer is now the proud owner of six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and custom everything for a mere $9,000 per square foot. The building itself houses a library, steam room and spa for pets.

The previous record for the most expensive real estate sold in the city was $88 million, which a Russian billionaire paid for his daughter’s Central Park West penthouse in 2012.

Take a look at the photos of the One57 development and tell us what you think. Do you think the price tag matches the purchase? Or is home really where the heart is?

    It isn't a home is it? nothing comes across as being comfortable and cosy, just rather sterile. But I guess they may just use it for their visits to the City? Rather have my own space!

    All that cleaning!! Especially the windows.. I guess that isn't the owners problem when they are that wealthy!!
