The Metropolitan, smack in the middle of some of the city's best schools, is Philip Johnson family–size. It was completed in 2004 just in time for Johnson's 100th birthday, and its curvy design has been described by some as "fat" and by others merely as "round."
Inside this softer take on a Carnegie Hill high-rise, this corner unit has over 2,300 square feet, according to the Corcoran listing. For nearly $3.5 million, there's a kitchen big enough for all the relatives to come visit and three bedrooms and three bathrooms to ensure they'll never leave.
The highlight, the bright pink and mauve corner bedroom, may not be the monochromatic Johnson's work, but it's sure to delight someone with a Miley Cyrus album. And it's not every listing that boasts about the designer closets—sadly not pictured. —Laura Kusisto
