Sky High rentals (pun intended) in NYC are nothing to be shocked about. After all penthouses routinely go for obscene sums. But as far as obscenity goes a sum of $135,000 for a month is still enough to get you noticed on The Rich Times. The title has been claimed by an apartment at the Waldorf Towers in Manhattan making it the most expensive active rental listing in the city as of now (or is it the most expensive ever? If you know someone who pays more, do let us know!).
Facilities include a full kitchen, pantry and maids’ room, three and a half bathrooms (to be precise) of which one is attached to the master bedroom and boasts of a real marble bath.
The apartment can also be accessed by the Waldorf Astoria Hotel but has a separate doorman, reception and lounge access for complete privacy.
