    One of New York's most legendary apartments, this coveted Penthouse is changing ownership for the first time in 25 years.

    This pre-war, 11-room condominium Penthouse on 62nd Street is just off Fifth Avenue. This property, which has meticulously restored architectural details, ornate décor and double-height entertaining rooms, was home to the late entertainment legend, Joan Rivers. The triplex residence is in a fully staffed limestone mansion, originally built at the turn of the century as one of the opulent mansions of the Gilded Age. One enters from a residence exclusive elevator landing, which opens into one of the grandest rooms in Manhattan. The home's centerpiece is a ballroom and adjoining music room with 23' ceilings, gilded antique boisserie paneling and columns and two fireplaces -capacious spaces that allow for entertaining on a grand scale. Adjacent to the music room is a dining room that allows for more intimate gatherings -- its three French doors opening to the south-facing terrace, allowing for al fresco dining. The beautifully appointed wood-paneled library has a fireplace and faces south and west with views of Central Park and the Manhattan Skyline.

    The second floor, with a mezzanine that overlooks the music room and ballroom, leads to the master suite, which has French doors opening to its own south-facing terrace with views of Central Park. Staff quarters can be accessed from this floor, which has a separate staircase leading to the kitchen.

    A separate but contiguous two-bedroom, two-bath guest quarters has its own large living room with a fireplace and an eat-in kitchen.

    Upper East Side

    Upper East Side

    Upper East, from 59th Street to 110th Street, from the East River to Fifth Avenue, with Sutton Place and Carnegie Hill as separate enclaves.

    The Upper East Side historically exemplifies serious landmark-type apartments but remains a neighborhood where a co-op or condo can be found for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with incredible Central Park views) continue to prevail in the Upper East Side from Park to Fifth Avenues, but there are plenty of studios, one- and two-bedroom condos, and rentals on the Upper East Side as well. New luxury condo buildings include 20 East End Avenue, inspired by the pre-war architecture of the Upper East Side, and Citizen360 which is committed to sustainable building practices.
