70 Charlton Street, PHA (Corcoran Group) 70 Charlton Street, PHA (Corcoran Group)
After a tumultuous year, many New Yorkers are evaluating what they need and want most in a place to live and thrive. Larger spaces, outdoor access, and home offices top several surveys of what house-hunters are searching for during the pandemic.

One thing that has not changed, however, is the notion that penthouse units represent the epitome of high-end living. A great number have the highest ceilings, best views, and most luxurious finishes in their building, and most feature some form of private outdoor space.

There are a little over 500 penthouses for sale in central areas of NYC with more than one-third showing a price improvement since their market debut. Unsurprisingly, these perches cost a premium, asking a median price of $5.375 million / $2,080 per square foot for condos and $2.5M for co-ops. Find below a full list of available penthouse units for sale/rent, and our picks of newly-listed top-floor apartments with private terraces and open views.
