Corner duplex with an enormous set-back terrace that is easily and ideally accessible from the living spaces. This gem of an outdoor space offers enough square footage to design distinct areas for dining, lounging comfortably, even sunbathing. Beginning with the statement its high ceilings make, the full configuration inspires one to entertain. The 17th floor includes a sizeable foyer, large living/dining room, an open windowed kitchen, and a windowed marble powder room. Curved and modern, the staircase to the 18th floor leads to a gracious landing, two generously sized bedrooms (one with double exposures) and two marble baths (one windowed). For convenience, this floor also has its own entrance.
By day, Northern and Western exposures flood the apartment with natural light for enjoying beautiful, partial East River views.

Situated in the front tower and with just two neighbors per floor, this is an opportunity to own a truly special penthouse-equivalent property!
