Last month I posted the deal of the century; an duplex on Minetta Lane in the West Village for $10 a month. Now here’s the MOST expensive rental in New York City (by quite a lot.) The 39th floor of the Pierre Hotel, rents for $500,000 a month. Uh-huh, $6 million dollars a year. (As a comparison, one of the most expensive apartments in the city offered by Corcoran, on the market for $60 million, would cost you $290,000 a month for for mortgage, maintenance and taxes. Of course, you’d need to plop down $12 million…) The Pierre’s’s Presidential Suite (which is $20,000 a night) combines with other suites to form this full-floor, 4,786-square-foot, 6 bedroom, 6 bath, (no kitchen) suite. The major selling point of being at the Pierre are the over-the-top hotel amenities, which include twice daily maid service, an on-call physician, two restaurants (which, btw, you’ll need without a kitchen) butler service and a chauffeur-driven Jaguar. To say nothing of that lobby and view of the park. If this seems a bit steep, they also have a one bedroom there with a park view for $120,000 a month.
