Don't Look Down! Highest Residences in North America for Rent in NYC

There are currently three luxury penthouses for rent in Manhattan on the 76th floor of the 870-foot-tall New York by Gehry tower. While The Beatles famously sang that money could not buy them love, in this case, it would certainly buy the finest views of New York City. The going rate to view the entire city from these penthouses, from Coney Island to north of the Catskills, will cost you $45,000 to $60,000 per month.

Exotic hardwood and stone floors are the foundation of the interior that features floor-to-ceiling window treatments, gourmet kitchens, and cavernous master and secondary bathrooms. Each penthouse for sale was designed specifically by the architectural icon himself, Frank Gehry.

These luxury Gehry penthouses offer the highest viewing point in North America, but may soon be knocked off their pedestal thanks to the upcoming One57 high-rise project by Extell, which will tower 1,000 feet above the city.

The lifestyle is as high-end as the positioning of the posh rental units. Amenities include a concierge network that addresses all matters relating to planning and arranging the simplest tasks to the most complex issues, from babysitting and pet care to dining and traveling. The onsite health center offerings private training sessions, beauty treatments and spa services, among others.
