It’s Free to Look: 304 East 65th Street

  • With all this talk about views, at some point it becomes necessary to up the ante. That might be why this apartment promises “helicopter views,” which will make you feel like a daredevil with a Lenox Hill address.

    If you're not inclined to view the city from a precarious perch mid-air, rest assured that what this 37th-floor apartment really offers is “breathtaking” 360-degree views of the East River, Central Park and the city’s skyline. 

    Thankfully, there’s also more than just a propeller for amenities, including a curved wall with which to wow (or terrify) your guests when it opens onto a secret hot tub. For your more basic entertaining needs, there's a wine cooler and plenty of space, given that the 4,000-square-foot apartment has been transformed from 13 rooms to a sprawling eight. 

    Your potential new home, the Rio, is a thin and shiny 1980s innovation that towers incongruously above the neighbors. Some have called it “awkward.” The Stribling listing promises, however, “celebrity glamour.” We suspect that's more a statement about the décor than the neighbors, who include a prominent plastic surgeon, a real estate broker and a pharmaceutical exec. 

    With all this, not to mention the $12 million price tag, we suspect you'll want to do more than hover. - Laura Kusisto
