Manhattan’s top 10 priciest homes by square foot: PHOTOS

Floating staircases, marble baths and coveted addresses often result in stratospheric asking prices for Manhattan’s most luxurious homes. But where does a Big Apple buyer get the best bang for his buck?

We teamed up with StreetEasy to round up the most expensive single-family homes on the market in Manhattan, based on asking price per square foot. Every property to make the list was a condominium, and the majority was clustered around Midtown.

Yet, even if these condos sell at their stratospheric price tags, none would set a record, at least not by price per square foot. The current record holder for the priciest closing price per square foot is the $88 million penthouse at 15 Central Park West, which rang in at more than $13,000 per square foot for the home’s 6,744 square feet of space.

Conspicuously absent from the list was Barbara Digan Zweig’s penthouse at the Pierre, which spans three floors at 2 East 61st Street. The listing does not indicate the square footage of the property and Elizabeth Sample, who is listing the property with her Sotheby’s International Realty colleagues Brenda Powers and Serena Boardman, declined to disclose the information.
