It’s Free to Look: 820 Park Avenue

If you've recently purchased a Hamptons estate, start looking for that receipt. This Upper East Side penthouse has so much nature, you'll get your Hamptons fix every single day of the week. And you'll never need to visit the florist again.

Some people have flower boxes on their windowsills, but this apartment is immersed, according to the Douglas Elliman listing, in a "garden oasis of unparalleled beauty." The expansive wraparound terrace, lush with vegetation, has all the charm of a greenhouse. And it boasts a "panoramic" view, as long as you can bushwhack your way to the railing.

For $5.85 million, admission to this urban Eden seems easy enough. But be sure to take off your pith helmet and khakis when you sit for an interview with the co-op board. Connected to the terrace garden is actually an entire apartment, where mountain men might feel a bit out of place. — William Alden
