As is common in buildings where the condos top a hotel, apartment owners will have access to the hotel’s amenities and services, from housekeeping to the crystal bar.

 

Barry Sternlicht said on a Bloomberg TV interview that they put in the finest fixtures and fittings and spared no expense. He didn’t think it was possible to spend more than they did on outfitting this stunning New York penthouse apartment. Let’s take a look at this $60m NYC penthouse apartment which crowns this building like a jewel to see if that statement stands up to scrutiny.
