Location: New York, New York
In Midtown Manhattan, the stretch of West 57th Street right under Central Park has become a mecca of new super tall, super skinny towers, each offering expensive residences with expensive views. In the shadows of these projects giving the neighb' the nickname Billionaires' Row, however, remain some older but certainly still architecturally stunning buildings that promise the more traditional Manhattan penthouse dream—none of that modern glass box stuff. Take a gander at, for example, a recently listed penthouse in the Briarcliff, an elegant prewar building right across from Carnegie Hall. Currently owned by billionaire investor and art collector Wilbur Ross, the roughly 5,573-square-foot spread is at once a grand place for entertaining and a calming retreat in the sky.
