993 Fifth Avenue, #PH (Brown Harris Stevens) 993 Fifth Avenue, #PH (Brown Harris Stevens)
When New York was on lockdown and those who stayed in the city were forced to live, work, learn, and relax in one small apartment, townhouses experienced a new appreciation and some wondered if this would spell the end of apartment life as we knew it. That has not come to pass - the responsibilities of owning a townhouse aren't for everyone, and penthouse apartments offer the square footage and privacy of a house along with extra perks. Because of this, a significant number of penthouses rank among the top sales of this year to date.

The penthouse is traditionally the apartment at the top of the building, which in turn offers the best views. It is also typically the largest, most luxuriously appointed, and most likely to have private outdoor space. Moreover, residents of these apartments have access to all the amenities and services in the building, offering a convenience that even the most fabulous townhouse can't match. Below, we take a look at penthouses in top locations.
