It’s Free to Look: 5 East 17th Street

This prewar penthouse, which spans an entire city block just off Union Square, promises that you'll never again have to look for ways to fill all that spare time.

For the amateur recording artist, 5 East 17th Street has a state-of-the art recording and telecommunications center. The master chef who prefers to cook for 50 will love the multiple Viking ovens, a restaurant-size fridge and a stainless steel island that looks like it could sustain some serious knife damage. Last, but certainly not least, New Age gurus will enjoy—and presumably understand—the energy-balancing Cromotherapy infinity tub.

For some more banal pursuits, there's also a rooftop terrace with plans for a garden and a pool, according to the Prudential Douglas Elliman listing. For $11.5 million, it may not be cheaper than a cooking class, but at least you won't have to fight anyone for the good knives. —Laura Kusisto
