Midtown Condo With Mirrored Ceilings Thinks It's Worth $3.3M

New, 3 comments


The brokerbabble title for this 2BR/2.5BA condo at 117 East 57th Street (also home to this thing) is "Glamour in the Galleria" because nothing says glamour like mirrored ceilings. Oh yes, the ceilings of the living room and master bedroom are clad in mirrors, which seems to be a ploy to trick people into thinking that the ceilings are higher than they actually are. But hey, the kitchen is newly renovated, there's "an exquisite powder room," and "voluminous closets," so maybe $3.3 million asking price isn't too outrageous? Nope. Still seems crazy high for a home with reflective glass ceilings—a "designer chic" choice that raises an important question: are mirrored ceilings or mirrored walls worse?
