View of Central Park from 50 Central Park South, #PH23 (Douglas Elliman) View of Central Park from 50 Central Park South, #PH23 (Douglas Elliman)
"It" neighborhoods and amenities come and go in New York City but, if the past week's top contracts are anything to go on, park views remain a highly coveted perk. The top contract was for Penthouse #23 at 50 Central Park South, a full-floor home with direct Central Park frontage, a private setback terrace, and a $34,000,000 asking price, down slightly from its $37 million ask when it was listed in June 2022 (h/t Olshan Realty). One of only 12 condo units as part of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, the buyer will enjoy access to the hotel's amenities and services. The buyer and seller were not identified, but the building has counted film producer Sidney Kimmel and casino magnate Steve Wynn among its notable residents.
The penthouse at 50 Central Park South was trailed by a three-bedroom unit around the block at Central Park Tower, where #63E entered contract with a $19,500,000 asking price. Further uptown, a full-floor penthouse at the top of 30 East 85th Street with five beds, five and a half baths, and Central Park views entered contract with a $15,500,000 asking price.

But while Central Park is one of New York's most famous outdoor expanses, it is not the only park in demand among New York's luxury buyers. The top downtown contract and third-highest overall took place at Madison Square Park Tower, a high-rise down the street from Madison Square Park; the four-bedroom, four and a half-bath Residence #52AB entered contract with a $17,500,000 asking price. On the opposite side of Madison Square Park, a three-bedroom at 212 Fifth Avenue took the fifth-highest contract with an asking price of $10,750,000. The buyer was not identified, but it does not appear to have been part of Jeff Bezos' massive assemblage near the top of the building.
