When it comes to floor plans and sight lines,
these Corcoran listings don't compromise an inch.
New York City life is an adventure. Racing down multiple staircases to catch the subway before the doors close. Hunting for reservations at the hottest new eateries. And don’t even get us started on alternate side parking.
The daily grind makes the simple satisfactions of home all the more important. Having a little extra space or something pleasant to look at out the window can go a long way, but New Yorkers often must sacrifice one for the other. These five city habitats stand out, then, providing both of those precious pleasures without compromise.
The 19th-floor of this Emery Roth-designed El Dorado duplex expands into a grand living room, immediately pulling you in with its show-stopping panoramas. From the 6,300-square-foot interior — but preferably on the wonderful wraparound terrace — experience unobstructed vistas of Central Park, the Reservoir, and the East Side. Wrap around, and you’ll peer south over the Upper West Side cityscape. Step down to the 18th floor and enjoy the same from a slightly lower perspective, including in multiple of the home’s six bedrooms. This duplex’s interior features prewar details throughout, including herringbone hardwood and crown moldings. Meanwhile, the chef’s kitchen truly earns that designation, with restaurant levels of space and high-end appliances at your disposal.

Atop SoHo’s historic Puck Building, this sprawling penthouse is chic beyond belief. Jaw-dropping design work from AD100 firm Fox-Nahem incorporates dazzling details (tall ceilings of the barrel-vaulted brick and metalized wood-plank variety), captivating conveniences (dual primary bed dressing rooms, a full-height steel mantel gas fireplace), and plain swagger (sunken media room with padded wool walls and a custom bar). There’s even a home gym and a home office. But let’s not forget to see the sights — your personal corner of the Lower Manhattan sky. Take the stellar surroundings from multiple angles on a 2,000-plus square foot terrace, whether dining under the willow pergola or unwinding in the hot tub.

This two-bedroom condo resides within The Sheffield, on a neighborhood nexus encompassing Midtown West, Central Park South, and Hell’s Kitchen — an actual New York minute away from Columbus Circle and Central Park. Triple exposures foster an extremely welcoming environment, as sunlight pours into an extra-expansive living and dining room. Manhattan’s increasingly upward cityscape rises into view throughout the home, particularly to the east and the south. It’s the sort of scenery that makes an ideal backdrop to any entertaining endeavor. For even greater glimpses, Sheffield residents have the Sheffield Sky Club — 24,000 square feet of amenities, including two roof decks and a glass-enclosed rooftop pool gazing over the Big Apple.

From above Brooklyn Bridge Park and the East River, a two-bed Brooklyn Heights condo. This spacious waterfront home claims one of the most covetable amenities in its building: access to a private cabana with sweeping vistas of Manhattan’s skyline and New York Harbor. Views also call from inside the apartment, whether from the open kitchen or the raised living/dining room sat below a harbor-facing window wall. Space is flexible in the apartment — a custom Murphy bed in the second bedroom allows it to efficiently serve as a library or study during daylight hours. Brooklyn Bridge Park contains vast recreational space, and the building’s amenities comprise a movie theater, ample fitness options, and more. Did we mention you get a personal parking space, too?

Land a starring role on Broadway; it only requires turning the key on this condo. Window walls in the bedrooms and the living room invite natural light across the home’s hardwood floors. They also serve as looking glasses, allowing you to peer over Midtown West while basking in its eternal energy. A humble yet mighty kitchen is flush with fully-integrated appliances, perfect for serving up meals in the charming dining nook. All residents claim access to multiple first-class communal spaces. The fourth floor boasts a landscaped terrace for further neighborhood glimpses and the standout “Club on the Square,” an entertainment lounge featuring a virtual golf room, a gym, and a conference center. Take city views to their apex in the 25-story building’s rooftop observatory.
