    Default Buying luxury apartment or townhouse, advice an area...

    Hello. I will buy apartment or townhouse in NYC. Please, tell me where is the best place to have such thing. I don't want to climb to high, but still want to see some skyline, with shops, restaurants and parks nearby. Simply anything that a wealthy man needs. Or maybe you can even advice me a particular building.
    By the way I dreamed about living in NY since childhood when I saw it on tv Thank you a lot!
    and God bless America!

    If you are wealthy I sugest to try the Upper East Side or The Upper West Side. You wont be disapointed. :wink:

    If you familiarize yourself with a map of NYC, this will give you a good idea of where the wealthy are living:

    You can browse the apartment listings at several websites of Real Estate firms listed in the Real Estate section of Wired New York.

    According to Market Watch report from Douglas Elliman, in the third quarter of 2003 the average sales price of a Manhattan apartment was $917,000 ($704/sq ft), the average size of a Manhattan apartment was 1,302 sq ft.

    And here some specific suggestions for a wealthy man:

    $1,200,000: Metropolitan Tower 1,500 sq ft 45th floor or Central Park Place 1,030 sq ft 25th floor or CitySpire 1,600 sq ft 55th floor
    $2,000,000: 220 Riverside Blvd 2,000 sq ft 44th floor
    $3,000,000: Park Imperial 2,000 sq ft 66th floor
    $3,500,000 Trump World Tower 2,800 sq ft 75th floor
    $4,000,000: Park Laurel 2,800 sq ft 24th floor or Perry West 3,700 sq ft

    Great to see you want to come to America, esp. NYC. Really nice that you have a lot of cash to spend, too.

    There are MANY nice areas in NYC. Upper East and West Sides are the traditional ones. But, TriBeCa is very nice, so is SoHo. I guess it depends on Downtown or Uptown, or Midtown. Can't forget about Grammercy Park/Flatiron/Union Square (between Midtown and Downtown), and Greenwich Village and Chelsea.

    Even Brooklyn Heights is amazing, with prime views of downtown and the water.

    Here's some high-end brokers and real estate sections:

    www.nytimes.com
    www.corcoran.com
    www.elliman.com
    www.brownharrisstevens.com
    www.greenthal.com
    www.realestateangels.com
    www.gerisonkin.com


    There's a lot more, just do a search.
