    Curing all fears of oversleeping, the 360-degree, 11-foot glass windows offer sunrise and sunset views of Manhattan, the Hudson and the Statue of Liberty.

    Of course, for $21.5 million, this 5,800-square-foot loft at 173 Perry Street in the far West Village offers a bit more than gossip. According to the Halstead listing, there are five bedrooms, a private terrace and a concierge, and Jean-Georges downstairs. And to keep the dinner party conversation going, Martha Stewart lived in a mere half of this sprawling abode before downsizing to a prison cell. — Laura Kusisto
