While some of New York's high-end buyers are starting to shy away from penthouses, another sector of the ultra-wealthy will always embrace the chance to buy the highest apartment in the newest buildings to make a statement on the city's skyline. In doing so, they are not just buying a residence, but acting as the earliest adopters and setting new standards for luxury living in the city. Moreover, the following apartments offer the chance to live in the tallest apartment buildings in the country.
