New York City's gonzo real estate market just keeps getting gonzo-er, particularly on the Upper East Side, where many of the city's priciest apartments are located. Add another one to that list: a full-floor, five-bedroom pad at 4 East 66th Street just went on the market for a mind-boggling $65 million. The co-op, owned by socialite Shafi Roepers, is located in a J.E.R. Carpenter-designed building that abuts Central Park—and yes, it has views of that verdant space on one side. According to the New York Post, the interiors were designed by Peter Marino, the "leather daddy of luxury," and the listing touts the apartment's "imminently classic yet also subtly edgy" style. What that actually means: lots of dark wood (particularly in the library, which also has built-in bookshelves), gilded accents, and a bright white kitchen with custom cabinetry. It's nice, sure, but is it worth $65 million? You be the judge.
