Ah, the Big Apple. Home to seas of taxis, breathtaking architecture, excellent bagels, and of course, your friendly neighborhood celebrities. Celebrity apartments, like celebrities themselves, can be elusive, but we’ve scoped out a few for your to peak into. Here are our top five celebrity apartments in NYC:
1. Ivanka Trump
As the daughter of famed businessman Donald Trump, it’s no wonder that Ivanka has some prime real estate of her own. Her 10-room Manhattan apartment is located high above Park Avenue and boasts breathtaking views of the New York City skyline. Ivanka favors a sleeker style than her parents: Her apartment is designed with contemporary angles, silver-leaf wallpaper and has an all-white nursery for her daughter.
2. Alec Baldwin
Actor Alec Baldwin’s New York pad has four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and occupies 4,137 square feet of space in the eclectic Greenwich Village. The apartment, which he purchased for $12.5 million, is located in Devonshire House, a historic building inspired by the Picadilly, London estate of the Duke of Devonshire. The building features a stunning combination of Moorish masonry and British detailing.
3. Jon Bon Jovi
Currently on the market for a cool $42 million, rocker Jon Bon Jovi’s Soho penthouse has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and features 11-foot ceilings in certain areas of the apartment. But that’s not all: It also has arched doorways, three terraces and a wood-burning fireplace (which, let’s face it, is the true mark of an apartment owned by the rich and famous).
4. Nicole Kidman
Actress Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban recently purchased a $10 million Eleventh Avenue penthouse (which was originally listed for $12.5 million–what a steal!). Like many celebrity apartments, it’s big and beautiful. But this two-level abode also has access to an automatic car elevator. What more could you possibly want? If you can spare $45,000 a month, you can rent out Nicole’s other apartment, which has views of the Hudson River.
5. Chelsea Clinton
NBC correspondent and former first daughter Chelsea Clinton recently purchased a four bedroom, six and a half bath apartment in the Flatiron District of Manhattan along with financier husband Marc Mezvinsky. At 4,967 square feet, this massive apartment is one of only four units in the entire Prohibition-era building. Chelsea and her hubby will also have access to a private elevator and resident-only gym.
