Penthouse no. 4 in Long Island City's The View has hit the market for $2.5 million, making it, according to Streeteasy, the most expensive apartment currently on the market in the borough of Queens.
Queens' previous most expensive apartment was also a penthouse (no. 5) in The View. It set a borough condo record when it sold for $3.1 million in November of 2012. This penthouse, at 1,763 square feet, is 22 percent smaller, and is in no danger of setting any records. It does, however, feature the same floor-to-ceiling windows and private terrace that made Penthouse no. 5 so attractive. The apartment's current owners paid $1.675 million for it in July of 2012.
