The Skinny: Perched high atop midtown Manhattan's Rockefeller Apartments, this terraced, one-bedroom penthouse enjoys direct views of the MoMA sculpture garden and the surrounding skyline. The views are not lost on this apartment either, as it's equipped with ten-foot ceilings and enormous glass doors that open onto a wrap-around terrace. The interiors are particularly well presented, but they probably have to be, considering the place is asking almost $2M and has but a tiny galley kitchen and a single entertaining room. Also missing is one of the building's famous dining bays, the footprint of which can be seen out on the terrace. Commissioned by Nelson Rockefeller, the building was designed by Wallace K. Harrison and J. André Fouilhoux and completed in 1937. Initially a rental aimed at out-of-town business people working at Rockefeller Center, the apartment complex was later converted into a residential co-op.
