Owning a home along the iconic New York City skyline is a dream for lifelong New Yorkers and newcomers alike.
The breathtaking views, serenity, and private outdoor space that oftentimes come with NYC penthouses make them a crown jewel among urban home hunters.
While sky-high mansions are usually accompanied by sky-high prices, we’ve rounded up penthouses on the market across several price points and neighborhoods.
