This being Rookie Roosts Week and all, it seems out of character to feature an Upper East Side flat with views of the Frick's garden and an eight-figure price tag, but the real estate market waits for no blog. Owned by former Sharper Image CEO Jerry W. Levin, the third floor of 15 East 70th Street measures 3,700 square feet and sits directly next door to the Frick on one of the city's most desirable blocks. The interior is fittingly extravagant, but notably lacking in Ionic Breeze air purifiers or massage chairs. Levin's unit is the largest in this Beaux Arts townhouse by a wide measure, so it's no surprise that the asking price of $10.5M is nearly $3M more than the last record price in the building. The cost doesn't end there though, as the 24 hour doorman, coupled with the small number of units, drives the monthly maintenance to $8,617.
