Vacation is almost over.
So, I decided to drive around and see some really nice properties in New York.
I’ve been busy during the first few days of September, teaching some teens how to drive around the neighborhoods here in Queens. It was an exciting experience.
The teens called me a calm, and highly experienced driving instructor, but I was just doing this for the first time.
The journey was an eye-opening experience for me.
Now, let’s talk about nice-looking properties I saw yesterday.
First, I visited the Heritage at Trump Place on the Upper West Side. The experience was really cool.
This triplex glass-and-marble penthouse holds an astonishing 20 rooms across 10,500 square feet.
On the main floor, you’ll find a 60-foot living room with views of the Hudson River waterfront, two terraces, a lounge and a dining room large enough to seat 16 people.
The top floor of the triplex encompasses the master bedroom alongside dual powder rooms. But, it’s the bottom level that’s the most indulgent, with a full bar, hot tub, fitness room, massage room, billiards room and a vented cigar room.
Well, the price tag for the property is $48.5 million and it’s red-hot right now.
I also checked the amazing building at 33 West 56th Street, PH1. It was a real cool place.
This high-ceilinged penthouse forms part of the Centurion Condominium in Midtown, which is designed by I.M. Pei, who won the Pritzker Architecture Price in 1983.
The legendary architect has designed everything from the National Gallery of Art’s East Building in Washington, DC to the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston to the Four Seasons Hotel in NYC. T
he 9,000-square-foot glass-and-marble penthouse has 12-foot ceilings, massive windows, 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and four terraces.
The piece de resistance, though, is the glass spiral staircase in the center of the home — from the top, you can gaze down at the striking living room.
The price tag is $39 million.
Both are really nice places you’ll want to be live.
It feels great learning about the expensive houses in the city.
Thanks for reading.
