The average sales price in Manhattan for condos in existing buildings was approximately $1.9 million throughout the third quarter of 2017. The average American could never even imagine affording a home or apartment anywhere close to $2 million… but Wall Street big shots, celebrities, and billionaire heirs aren’t exactly average Americans.
According to Business Insider, New York City’s Upper East Side has a hidden neighborhood where many of the city’s nicest people live, including Ricky Martin, Johan Santana, Debra Messing, and, soon, the Obamas.
East End Avenue is an 11-block tree-lined stretch alongside the East River on the Upper East Side of the city. It’s a quiet street lined with buildings and structures from the 1920s and 1930s and is said to be one of the last true neighborhoods in New York City.
“The people who live here never sell,” said Baquero, president of the Corigin Real Estate Group and developer of the area’s newest building 20 East End. “If they sell, it’s to upgrade for better views or a bigger apartment. They never move out of the area because they feel like they will never find this anywhere else in the city.”
The apartments in the building range from $10 million to upwards of $35 million.
Five of the most common applications for Stainless Steel 316 are jet engine parts, boat fittings, food processing equipment, chemical containers, and laboratory equipment; and people who live in millionaire hidden neighborhoods likely have not only the nicest-looking stainless steel appliances, but top-of-the-line decor pieces and just about everything imaginable that would be inside an expensive home.
Though the richest of the rich are enjoying life in the city’s Upper East Side, there are plenty more affluent celebrities that can be found in amazing locations all over New York City. Here are some of the most famous people in the world and their amazing NYC apartments, condos, and homes:
- Beyonce and Jay Z — This American power couple owns a $12.5 million renovated lost in Tribeca. Its value has nearly doubled over the last 10 years. Though little is known about the renovations that took place in the lost, it was rumored to be the setting for their wedding.
- Leonardo DiCaprio — “The Wolf of Wall Street” owns an eco-friendly sanctuary apartment just north of the Financial District. The building has vitamin C-infused showers, aromatherapy air supply, and a wellness concierge. The U.S. flooring industry reported growth of 3.85% in dollars last year, and Leo’s $10 million apartment even features posture-supportive heat reflexology flooring. It sounds fancy because it is fancy.
- Denzel Washington — Denzel’s high-style unit is worth $13 million and has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and an apartment in the back. The unit, purchased by Denzel in 2006, was designed by the firm of Yale’s dean of architecture, Robert A.M. Stern.
- Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen — A year after this power couple bought their $13 mansion, they started renting it out for $40,000 a month. Then, they upgraded to a $20 million apartment on a desirable high floor in 70 Vestry, a new luxury building in Tribeca. The home features an 82-foot-long indoor pool, a yoga studio, cafe, children’s playground, and even a squash quart.
- Spike Lee — Lee originally listed his historic Hatch house at the beginning of the year for $32 million, but the property is now valued at $28.5 (what a steal). With five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three half-baths, this four-story home is incredible. Lee purchased the home in 1998 for $16.6 million.
Surely, these multimillion-dollar properties aren’t for everyone to enjoy, but it sure is fun imaging what life would be like if we all had fancy-sounding floors, squash courts inside our homes, and millions and millions of dollars.
