The former New York Cancer Hospital at 455 Central Park West is possibly the closest thing New York City has to a castle (well, and these, too), and like so many other grand and glorious structures, it now holds condos. Some of these look fit for Medieval times, but others, like this $7.995 million duplex, are only castle-y in their floorplans. This 5,317-square-foot home occupies two of the buildings massive turrets, giving it a unique Mickey Mouse-style footprint with a 37-foot wide circular living room with soaring 37-foot ceilings. (Back in the day, these were two of the patient wards "because it was believed that germs thrived in corners.") It has a library, four bedrooms, and Central Park views, and the building has a lap pool, fitness center, and parking garage.
