For the average Joe, $59,000 could be equivalent to one year’s salary. For others, it may be a ticket into one of the city’s most exclusive condominium buildings.

A new rental listing first spotted by the New York Post is offering a precious sneak peek inside 220 Central Park South, which is expected to pull in $1 billion for Vornado Realty Trust.

The 40th floor unit is asking a whopping $59,000 a month — though it’s a relative bargain compared with the $238 million paid by hedge funder Ken Griffin for a massive penthouse at the building in January. The sale smashed the record for the most expensive home ever sold in New York City.

The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath rental, which is being listed with the Corcoran Group’s Carrie Chiang, Loy Carlos, and Andres Perea-Garzon, spans 3,114 feet and offers prime views of Central Park.  It feature herringbone floors, and Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, according to the Post.
