211 East 51st Street Unveils Totally Renovated Penthouse

Curbed // Feb 09, 2012

Event: The re-unveiling of Penthouse B at 211 East 51st Street

In the House: Lots of CORE brokers, the ever-present Selling New York camera crew, and some downstairs neighbors eager for a closer look.

Dress code: Broker chic

Menu: We saw glasses and folks busy in the kitchen, but managed to miss all the actual nibbles.

Overheard: Lots of chatter about what the penthouse used to look like vs. what it looks like now.

What We Saw: The $6.495 million penthouse—our amateur photos in the gallery above. The people-free listing photos are here; last night, that TV was showing an ocean scene.

The Skinny: This penthouse has been on and off the market since 2008, when it first showed up asking $4.5 million. So what’s changed? Everything, actually! The 3,175-square-foot duplex has been completely reconfigured.

We pulled the old floorplan from StreetEasy to compare (click to expand):
