This 78th Street home has had its fair share of history. The home was once inhabited by legendary photographer Milton Greene, who at one time shared it with a guest named Marilyn Monroe. (You may have seen a few of her movies). The star of the house is the master bathroom on the 4th of 5 floors, decorated beautifully with a steam shower, marble all over, a large jacuzzi tub, and gorgeous red wallpaper. The rest of the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is a fine supporting cast, with ornate fireplace mantels, outdoor space with a garden adjacent to the ground floor and a terrace on the 2nd floor, 3 spacious bedrooms on the 4th floor, a home office on the first floor, and a large basement. The former abode of dame Marilyn Monroe can be yours for a paltry $26,500 a month.

It’s been called the “most beautiful brownstone in New York”, and this Brooklyn multi-family home explains that description to any who observe its interior’s magnificence. This gorgeous building is meant to be split into 8 units within its 18,000+ square feet. If the interior brilliance wasn’t enough, the brownstone is located in fantastic Brooklyn Heights, steps away from a promenade overlooking a gorgeous lower Manhattan Skyline. If you can get 7 other families to go in with you on 3 Pierrepont Place, the $50,000,000 asking price might seem less steep.

If Manhattan had a king, this is probably where they would reside. This 6 bedroom condo at 1 Central Park West looks like it was built for royalty by the kingdom’s most finest crafters. According to the room’s Streeteasy bio, the dining room and “great room” have parquet de versailles flooring reconstructed from a French Chauteau. The whole apartment has the feel of a European palace, but if you peer out the window, the majestic views of Central Park, Columbus Circle and midtown Manhattan will remind you which city the apartment is in. The 6,360 sq ft apartment’s dining room also overlooks the Hudson River. There is a downside to living here: the building is named after a certain orange-ish candidate for president. If you can get over that, and you have $40,000,000 to match the asking price, this humble abode could be your new home.

Address: 1 Central Park West #47BC, New York, NY 10023
