Over 47 million non–New Yorkers descend upon us each year. In case you’re wondering how lives the other half, this rental offers a glimpse that might even make you envy them, just a bit.
For $48,000 a month, you get a penthouse with mahogany floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and marble bathrooms. It comes fully furnished, but, rest assured, whoever did the decorating has exquisite taste: crystal stemware, Italian linens and furnishings featuring chocolate velvets, tweed plaids and silk prints. Though you many not plan to stay long, there are still walk-in closets, just in case you decide to overstay your welcome.
Outside, there’s a terrace for 10. In case that’s not enough space to soak up the muggy New York summer, there’s also a terrace off the bathroom, according to the listing.
Former residents include Diane Keaton, Shannen Doherty and Andy Garcia. In exchange for a not-small chunk of change, maybe they’ll even let you sign the A-list guest book. —Laura Kusisto
