In the list of luxury apartments a sumptuously designed and furnished corner penthouse, deemed the Castle in the Sky, sits atop the Plaza Residences and seeks a buyer for the one-of-a-kind luxury offered in the 12-room home. Having undergone a $20 million renovation, the duplex is now on the market for $50 million. The décor harkens back to the original grandeur of the French-Renaissance style with ceilings up to 35-feet-high — perfect for art collectors. Relax in the library as you take in the sweeping views of Central Park and the Grand Armory Plaza or host the ultimate dinner party in the formal dining room with wet bar.
