Pretty much every week it seems like a new $50 million condo in New York City gets listed. While Billionaire’s Row has received a remarkable amount of attention, we wondered if there were any other patterns or places where incredibly expensive listings were concentrated. In order to find out, we mapped out where the priciest listings are that are on the market right now.
No surprise, midtown rules as the neighborhood with the highest number of expensive listings — a whopping 23 out of 100, though Lenox Hill (the portion of the Upper East Side that runs from East 60th to 72nd Street between Fifth and Lexington Avenues) was close with 22 properties. The rest of the Upper East Side had 13 additional properties.
Though Tribeca/Soho/Noho/Nolita recently made Forbes’ list as the most expensive zip codes in the city for sales, together they only brought in 12 such listings. Perhaps proof that though properties in midtown and the Upper East Side and midtown may list for insane amounts of money, they are not so quick to sell.
Sprinkle in the occasional odd listing in a wild card neighborhood, like the Walker Tower in Chelsea, where the penthouse is asking $70 million, or the penthouse at the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park City which is asking $75 million, and you have yourself a real party. Take a look at our interactive map above (properties listed for greater than $50 million are in yellow; the rest are in purple), and let us know which of these properties you would love to own the most in the comments.
