Our “bipolar penthouse party” caught the attention of the New York Observer last week, and last night Curbed dropped by 303 Mercer Street in Greenwich Village to get a look inside Penthouse 605 and its neighbor, Penthouse 608, both listed for sale by CORE’s Maggie Kent and David Grossmann.
Up in #608 the menu was champagne and hors d’oeuvres, while #605 kept things a bit more casual with a beer and BBQ theme. There were other differences that caught the eye of Curbed’s William Weber:
One caters to the younger and more edgy buyer, while the other is begging for a Martha Stewart-type to take over the kitchen. One thing the two have in common: sweet staircases to their private roof decks. So which staircase wins? We photograph, you decide!
Curbed has a full photo gallery to help in the decision-making process. Check it out!
