14 thousand 539 square feet atop the world’s first Art Deco skyscraper built
in 1927 it has unobstructed views of the Statue of Liberty with over 40,000

today I’m doing a walkthrough with one of the top real estate brokers in the
city hi I’m Shawn Asher I’m the CEO of core the number one boutique residential
real estate company in New York City I’ve been doing this for almost 30 years
I’ve sold close to ten billion dollars worth of real estate in my career today
I’m at 100 Berkeley the penthouse and have the pleasure of showing Eric
Conover this incredible space Harry you’re in for a real treat
welcome to the penthouse at 100 Berkeley I will say that in the 30 years of
apartments that I’ve sold this is one of the if not the most spectacular I don’t
know of another foyer where you get a window this size almost 20 feet actually
more than 20 feet high it’s actually kind of tough to get a perspective of
how big these floor-to-ceiling windows are without seeing someone standing next
to them the views from this apartment are unreal the apartment is perfectly
aligned with the Empire State Building and because of the zoning laws in
Tribeca there are unobstructed views of all
Manhattan in one sight line having views like this it’s incredibly dynamic and
just watching how the city evolved dramatically as day it turns in tonight
and the city comes alive when you look at this building from the outside you
know this is one of those buildings that when you’re on the street you look up
and you go wow that’s one of the most beautiful New York buildings we’re
actually standing in that space this building is built out of bricks and you
couldn’t replicate this build in today’s world you know these bricks
were laid brick by brick and that’s not how they build buildings today so you’re
really buying a piece of the New York City skyline here and you’re buying a
piece of craftsmanship that’s irreplaceable welcome to one of the
biggest living room in New York City in my 30 years of doing this have not seen
a bigger living room the one word I get from people when they walk into the
space is wow I mean that really describes this room and I think this is
the quintessential Wow New York City penthouse apartment you
know the kind that you would think your superhero lives in in Gotham City or
Manhattan this is the Bruce Wayne apartment what Tony Stark I love the
Marvel movies and it’s in the new one oh yeah oh yeah I’ve seen it twice oh this
is Tony Stark’s apartment actually I should probably call him because Robert
Downey would be a good buyer for this thank you for that we’ll go through you
know sections of this living room because it’s so big and it’s something
that is pretty remarkable is the buyer for this probably has a
significant art collection and that’s a great challenge when people buy in these
glass towers with floor-to-ceiling glass there’s not much wall space the beauty
of this space is there is more art wall space here than any other apartment I’ve
ever seen so when you look at these walls they’re
a canvas for great artwork relative to the space these pieces of furniture may
seem small but you know this C shaped couch over here could seat comfortably
15 people this l-shaped couch over here could easily seat 10 people the true
beauty of the space is that you can fit two coffee tables in an area and not
feel like one is imposing on the other and then over here you have a dining
area now this is a huge dining room table that seats 10 very comfortable
spaces what’s better than standing or sitting at the head of this table and
looking at the Hudson River with boats passing because this penthouses faces
west door in golden hour the apartment walls turn into almost this living art
museum with the shadows dancing across the oversized wall the warm color that
the Sun creates instantly changes the entire feel of the space as opposed to a
cloudy day if you’re the kind of person who loves to entertain this is the
ultimate entertaining space I think you could easily fit 300 people
in this living room just the living room not the rest
the apartment and be very comfortable you know if you need to lounges and a
dining room and a Reading area in one room this is it now as we’re moving
through this living room the 21 foot windows give you some of the most unique
and breathtaking views no matter where you’re looking in this apartment like
straight down below you had the lively West Side Highway then looking south you
have the cleanest view of the Statue of Liberty at sunset I mean it almost looks
like a painting and then what’s really cool is that this corner creates an
intimate moment in a space with this much volume which is really unique you
would think in a room this intimidating and big you wouldn’t be able to have
intimate moments but you know this is an example of one corner that kind of has
that feeling about it part of the beauty of these pre-war buildings is that
they’ve got moments and elements the walls aren’t flat there are really
interesting details like exposed columns and then this is one of them which has
got this little nook where you can actually seat people there a couple of
them in this room you can never have enough storage
even in 14,500 square feet I hope you put things up there you have a ladder
those are things the buyers not gonna worry about when you buy an apartment
like this you don’t worry about how you’re gonna change the light bulb
speaking of lights most pet houses only have one single grand chandelier due to
the sheer size of this living room you’re able to equip the space with not
one but three custom lighting fixtures they add a modern touch to such a
classic space so I’m moving from this intimate corner here we’ve set this up
like an office area but what a cool space to come home work or work from
home turn around look at the Statue of Liberty this right behind us is one
World Trade Center which is actually kind of a glass Moreau facade and what’s
very cool about that is you can see your reflection of this building in that
facade so let’s go from the living room into the kitchen area really has every
appliance a chef would ever need actually if you stood underneath this
hood you would be sucked out of the building that’s a joke yeah this is a deep fryer I mean I think
the owner of this apartment probably won’t use the deep fryer because they’re
probably like one of those really healthy foot people but you know this
would make great french fries you’ve got induction you’ve got six gas
burner you’ve got a grill two ovens everything is gagging now which is the
best appliance that is made in the market today and this is truly a chef’s
kitchen of course there’s a wine storage as every penthouse should have so it’s
kind of like a service entrance into the kitchen if you’re catering and you want
people to be servicing from the kitchen it’s the living room this is a back
entrance where they can do it this is the lap of luxury like it is walking
through the kitchen there’s actually another prep sink over there and this is
kind of an informal dining area this is where you’d probably eat lunch maybe
have breakfast hang out have a cup of coffee it’s a much more smaller intimate
livingroom space with a wood-burning fireplace on two sides also very cool
you can stand here and you look over santiago calatrava oculus which is
pretty spectacular so the other side of fireplace has got this bigger lounge
area and what’s really cool about this is it’s got this fully serviced wet bar
and pretty much anything you would need to entertain and serve drinks to all of
your guests so you know this place is a duplex because you saw the stay case
let’s take a look upstairs this is a temporary staircase but I think this is
a real design moment for someone who’s gonna buy the space it’s an
architectural opportunity to have someone come in and design something
that is a sculptural piece of this living room and I’ve sold apartments for
millions of dollars with stay cases that have cost millions of dollars the buyer
of this also gets with a 40,000 square feet of amenities in the building you
have a 24-hour doorman concierge you have a swimming pool you have a spa they
have a fitness center you have a conference room you have a movie theater
40,000 square feet of amenities in addition to this 14,500 square feet of
private space so now we’re going from public space to private space
and we left this raw so this area here would be part of the private space and
by private I mean bedrooms study servants quarters home office gym this
section here is bigger than most apartments in New York City you know
this allows for the most flexibility for the potential buyer by then I mean you
know there’s mechanicals already in the space plumbing electric air conditioning
heating just to put that in perspective all of the finished space I showed you
the living room the kitchen the dining room is less than 50% of the home that
the buyer would be buying here which makes this apartment officially the
largest single unit that we’ve toured on my channel and that’s something pretty
special comment down below more New York City if you want to see more luxury
apartment tours want to give a huge thanks to my friend Sean here for
showing us this incredible apartment it was fun and if you’re interested in
buying this apartment make sure to get in contact with my friend Sean also go

  1. Welcome to the LARGEST living room in New York City!!! How crazy is this penthouse?? Comment down below your favorite part and share this video with who you would move into this apartment with!

  2. That’s my dream apartment omg i really love the big windows! Me and my moms apartment costs $700 in a month and i shouldn’t even think about being able to buy this.. we are so poor ughh

  3. Stop say you can easily fit 500 people in ths bathtub 1000 in this wardrobe if he was showing me round i would tell him to stand outside

  4. This honestly seems like it was an office back in the day and was converted, hence why there are hardly any windows except giant oddly placed windows. Its almost as if the builder wanted the buildings occupants to not be distracted by the new york skyline. A shame, and certainly will not fetch anywhere near what they ask, especially as so many new condos are going up.

  5. Come sei vestito in modo ridicolo ….ma vestiti bene e poi parli di case milionarie…..il tuo vestito si è ristretto in lavatrice????????????

  6. Why spend $40,000,000 on this apartment when you can spend the same amount to buy a mega mansion that has a kitchen as big as this whole apartment😂

  7. It's really not for living..it's just a museum with furniture and lovely views…
    And then maybe if you get a top DJ..some strobe lights ..you can have a club themed party lol

  8. These living spaces are so large that they can’t be furnished sensibly. Just a scattering of furniture “zones” in the massive room

  9. Tbf I don't even like the apartment, I prefer one which is smaller and has 360 degree views around the whole place like the $16 million apartment. This one is too big.

  10. I would not feel comforable in this living room. Idk its just so unnecessary. The second part, beginning with the kitchen feels way more comfortable. And one thing to add. There is not a SINGLE Tv in this house.

  11. Guys let's buy this apartment by sharing only 1 dollar…
    500 people will be allowed for 2 hours only so a day has 24 hours so may we get into luxury House after a year🤔🤔🤔😂😂😂

  12. More New York City apartment tour! I would love to see one with those private swimming pools high up in the sky (like the one on 50 United Nations Plaza)

  13. A big living room is one thing. If your living room is as big as the average house, and looks like a raymour and flannigan showroom, it’s too much.

  14. LMAO, I just can't! Erik, seriously, the short pants and no socks thing looks ABSOLUTELY, COMPLETELY, TOTALLY RIDICULOUS. Clownish. Especially with the big clodhopper shoe heels, lmfao. Are you ACTUALLY serious with this look or did you lose a bet?

  15. It's crazy how so many people in NYC are living in small apartments and renting rooms while some people are living in apartments that are as big as a department stores!

  16. Now that I know about property tax:
    After paying $40 million dollars to own, you now realize that you have the privilege of:
    Renting from the government for $30,000 PER MONTH, FOREVER.
    [$40 million x 2.219% NY property tax = $887,600 per year (forever) = $74,000/mo (forever)] That's on top of your $111,000 per month mortgage over 30 years.

    That's right, your TAX (forever) is nearly the same per month as your MORTGAGE (30 years).

    For the first 30 years you will pay $185,000 per month.
    For the rest of eternity you will pay $111,000 per month (MONTH) to the government (nothing in return).

    If you fail even ONE PAYMENT, the government will steal your home and sell it at auction for a discount. It will then charge you the difference to pay the rest of your tax, and you will not get the proceeds from your home that you had paid for.

    After 100 years of ownership, you have now paid the government a non-refundable $89 MILLION dollars on top of the $40 million you paid for the property. Your total cost for the property after 100 years: $129 MILLION. In 100 years your neighborhood will be overrun with crime and be worthless, for a total loss. Your descendants inherit nothing but a worthless shack they cannot visit for fear of death from stray gunfire or car bombs.

    Worth it?

  17. Why is there braille for the movie theater ? It's weird for blind people to enter one 🤔

    I guess they can use it to listen to music

  18. THE Millionaires don’t know what to do with their money 💰, so , they doing all this ,, that only Millionaire. Can afford ,, they’re soo self pooping sick , that they make this bull shit monstrosity apartments, that no one else ☝️ than them ,, can live in this bullying world 🌎 of them .
