Market Research: Penthouses

Life at the top, from $70 million to less than $750,000.

The Pierre, 2 East 61st Street $70 million. Five-bedroom, seven-bath triplex with 1,000 square feet of terraces. Brokers: Elizabeth Lee Sample and Brenda Powers, Brown Harris Stevens.  



It’s been on the market, unsold, for three years—but it wouldn’t be all that surprising if someone finally paid the New York–record $70 million asking price for this triplex at the Pierre. (Two buyers have, in fact, offered more than that amount, though neither could make it past the Pierre’s super-tough co-op board.) The triplex was once the ballroom of the hotel, said to be inspired by the Royal Chapel at the Palace of Versailles. But Versailles doesn’t have 41st-story views in four directions, now, does it?
