This duplex penthouse on Avenue C and East 11th Street is pretty nice, or as the brokerbabble puts it, "arguably the most dramatic and glamorous property the East Village has ever seen." It just hit the market for $3.6 million, just over $1,500 per square foot.
The penthouse is owned by Christine Hunsicker, the CEO of a company called Gwynnie Bee, which is basically like Netflix but for clothing for plus-sized women. Hunsicker bought the apartment in 2008 for $2.6 million and it looks like she did more than a little bit of renovating — the 2,325-square-foot pad is now decked out with a solarium off the master bedroom, a fancy-looking shower, and a sauna to go along with all the stuff it already had going for it, such as the private elevator landing, three terraces, and two Juliet balconies. (If you want to see what the apartment looks like un-staged, check out these pictures from a party that Hunsicker hosted there.)
