Sky-high living: Show-stopping New York apartments

What springs to mind when you think of New York? The Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Central Park, Met Gala dinners, yellow taxis, coffee, Broadway shows?

The Big Apple – the city that never sleeps – New York’s reputation is unrivalled and unsurpassed when it comes to must-visit destinations.

There’s a side to the city that oozes opulence and elegance – there’s a good reason that it’s home to so many rich and famous. Thanks to the plethora of TV shows and films set in the city, we’ve all had New York apartment envy. Dreams of throwing open the curtains to views of downtown Manhattan or Central Park, sipping our morning cup of coffee while absorbing the view…

In a city where the sky’s the limit, we’ve found some simply jaw-dropping properties that encapsulate luxurious city living and will have you American dreaming.

Midnight in Manhatten

From the address (15 Central Park West) to the panoramic views to the full height windows, there are so many beautiful elements to our final New York apartment.

We can’t get enough of the fact that the entranceway is about twice the size of the average UK kitchen. Nothing says opulence than bright open space and a few choice items of furniture.

For us, it’s the view you get sitting on the sofa in this apartment that really takes your breath away. Who needs a TV when you can watch the Manhattan skyline at dusk as the city lights up at night?
