For all the amazing vistas and mind-boggling amenities New York's high-rises have to offer, getting on the elevator and making stops on several other floors on the way home has a way of taking the wind out of these particular sails. However, that problem is easily solved with the help of elevators that open directly at one's apartment, as seen in the following listings.

Generally found in boutique buildings with very few units per floor, the elevators come equipped with security that only allows residents access to their specific apartments. This is most commonly seen in the form of a key-lock system, but some of the more tech-savvy buildings are incorporating key pads, magnetic controls, and even fingerprint or voice recognition capabilities. These are primarily found in luxury doorman buildings with doorman surveillance, and extras like secondary doors with bolt locks act as additional security measures.
