Want Jean-Georges to come over and cook a dinner for you and a few friends? Need help planning a wow-her date that involves jet-skiing under the Brooklyn Bridge a la Hitch? And, clearly, booking a private jet to transport your puppy is sky-high on the to-do list. All these everyday problems and more are solvable?if your luxury apartment building has a pull-out-the-stops concierge desk. This particular breed of amenity is becoming more and more popular (and catering to more and more absurd requests) as apartment owners and even renters (like at Mercedes House, pictured) get used to hotel-level service while traveling and come to expect the same kind of treatment at home, too.
