We had to laugh a little when this Post article today promised a penthouse for every price range and lifestyle, but then we got to the bottom and there they were, two of them in all their relative affordability.
Above, there's the bargain-basement one-bedroom Kips Bay penthouse that's only $649,000?for those with a bigger green thumb ("private planted 24 x 11 setback terrace") than yen for extraneous space. [251 E. 32nd St./Bellmarc]
And below, there's the Roebling Square penthouse in Williamsburg that figures in the NYP writers' Death Cab for Cutie meets "The O.C." fantasy (um, yeah). Two bedrooms, two baths, private terrace, all for $960,000. And the "mezzanine easily converts to a large third bedroom," because nothing says penthouse like cramming in a third roommate.
