There are few reasons to envy the city’s hordes of summer tourists. On that very short list should certainly be included larger-than-life views of the Statue of Liberty and concierge service.
Thankfully, this four-bedroom residence on the 34th floor of the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park City doesn’t exactly emulate the New York experience of the sweaty masses. In addition to a (relative) close-up of the lady with the torch, residents also enjoy butler service and valet parking, according to the Douglas Elliman listing, not to mention a restaurant downstairs featuring brioche croque monsieur.
The neighbors, including a Goldman Sachs exec and the CEO of Pepsi Asia, likely have a story or 10 to tell, if you’re lucky enough to catch them at home.
