If you were to spend $60,000 per month on rent, wouldn't you want a great view?
The penthouse apartment at the Gehry at Eight Spruce Street skyscraper, from which on a clear day you can see the Catskill Mountains, is asking that princely price.
Every touch in the 3,800 square foot unit was designed by Frank Gehry.
The apartment is 850 feet in the air. Along with the mountain views, it has an up-close view of the World Trade Center, several bridges and the Atlantic Ocean.
The building's marketers claim that it is the highest apartment in the Western hemisphere.
The penthouse also comes with a separate studio apartment for the hired help.
Along with the $60,000 a month apartment, there are two three-bedroom penthouses that cost $45,000 per month.
The 76-story building, originally known as Beekman Tower, features nearly 900 rental units. The building contains an elementary school on the lower levels.
The building features a wave-like exterior of the stainless steel that dominates the lower Manhattan skyline.
