This Is What New York City’s Most Expensive Apartment Looks Like

Hello, wealth inequality. This week the 11,000-square foot penthouse at One57 sold for $100.5 million, making it the most expensive apartment ever sold in New York City. For comparison’s sake, that’s also how much a four-lane interstate highway would cost, or the annual expenditures in the country of Palau. Featured in the plutocrat paradise are six bedrooms, a steam room, library, and a movie theater. Mum’s the word on who actually bought it, but realistically you and I probably will never meet the guy, anyway. Check out more specs at The Roosevelts.
