If you think you can snag a steep discount on rent by moving a single block away from “Billionaire’s Row” on 57th street—well, we’re about to burst your bubble. But eye-popping $27,000/month price tag aside, this East 58th Street two-bedroom gives plenty of reason for would-be renters a reason to dream of Midtown.
Given its proximity to ultra-luxe condo building One Beacon Court—a building so upscale its on-site retail is Le Cirque—you can expect all the usual high-end amenities included in this listing, such as a 24-hour doorman, concierge service, a “state of the art fitness center,” children’s playroom, and a massage room. But the real perks are the views, which come in every single room (but the bathroom), and look onto Central Park and the East River. Even the breakfast nook has a view of the skyline fit for a sultan (or a bonus-toting stock broker). In addition to the floor-to-ceiling windows, the 10-foot ceilings give the place an airy feel, meaning it’s a solid bet for any deep-pocketed renter seeking out extra natural light as we head into the dreary winter months.
It’s pricey, yes, but given that the building is also home to one of the most expensive apartments for sale in the entire city—a $79 million penthouse, which was originally listed for $115 million—maybe this can be justified as a relative bargain?
