Not all that long ago, you could probably have bought an entire block in Harlem for $5.9 million. At least you can still get a seven-bedroom penthouse with a view of Central Park.
For anyone for whom Harlem is where Mr. Bond meets Mr. Big, this condo at 1851 Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard has just the right amount of spy chic. You'd never guess this apartment has two more wings because gigantic steel doors conceal the bedrooms, including an 800-square-foot master bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace, marble bathroom… and shark gun.
Alternatively, for the swinging bachelor without plans to take over the world, there’s room to host a party for several dozen of your closest acquaintances with an enviable audio-video system, 1,000-bottle wine cellar and a massive terrace, according to the Corcoran listing. -- Laura Kusisto
