It’s Free to Look: 812 Fifth Avenue

Land a coveted spot on Fifth Avenue and even a nasty divorce won’t be able to tear the two of you (and by that we mean you and your penthouse) apart.

You’re likely to get pretty attached to two full top floors with a wrap-around terrace and Central Park views. We guarantee, however, that nothing you do to stay will top building legend. 

Recall, after they split Nelson Rockefeller and his wife divvied up their three-floor penthouse with separate entrances at 810 and 812 Fifth Avenue. Then there’s the tale of socialite and jewelry designer Janet Yaseen, who endured a humiliating public battle for her apartment in the building and its much-ridiculed wine cellar worth a half-million dollars.

With a master bedroom featuring an enviable walk-in closet, according to the Time Equities listing, you should have no reason to fight. But just in case, spending $9.9 million is another reason you may want to hold on until death do us part. --Laura Kusisto
