If there is anything in the world that can make our jaws drop, it's a New York City penthouse. Aside from the Sex and the City ideals these homes represent, it's the stunning views and lavish interiors that make each listing the crème de la crème of real estate. Because we're big dreamers — one day, right? — we've put together the ultimate guide to Manhattan's most coveted listings. With private terraces, supreme finishes, and multimillion-dollar price tags, don't blame us if you go buy a lotto ticket!

The Flatiron District

OK, so it's $25 million — but high price point aside, this condo in New York's Flatiron District [2] is a dream listing. With over 6,500 square feet of interior space and four terraces, this four-bedroom, six-bathroom (not to mention the two half baths) home is the epitome of indoor/outdoor city living. While the views of Madison Square Park certainly aren't shabby, we'd rather rest our eyes on the sleek, airy interiors.

Upper East Side

This Upper East Side listing [4] is so grand, we don't know where to start. Filled with breathtaking attention to detail and a carefully curated sense of style, this five bedroom, five bath apartment is city living at its finest. The finishes are sleek, and the private outdoor space offers a quiet, urban getaway.

Park Avenue

Look no further than this $10 million New York listing [6]. Spanning 3,987 square feet, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom (plus a half bath) home sits in one of the most prestigious cooperatives on Park Avenue. Ten-foot beamed ceilings and oversize windows drench the space in natural light, and treetop views of Central Park provide serenity in the middle of the city. The home includes a spacious foyer, living room, family room, eat-in kitchen, wood-paneled library, and even a private elevator landing.

Fifth Avenue

At $95 million (yes, you read that right), this Fifth Avenue penthouse [8] is the American dream. Located in New York's legendary Sherry Netherland building, this isn't just a seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home. Complete with not one but three outdoor terraces, the views of Central Park and midtown Manhattan are ideal. Don't worry, a private movie theater is also included.

Upper West Side

Sure, the $9.9 million listing price is quite a chunk of change, but a girl can fantasize, right? Located in the prestigious Apthorp Building [10] in New York City's Upper West Side, this five-bedroom, six-bathroom condo duplex feels more like a lavish townhouse. While its square footage is undoubtedly impressive, this home has more than just space to offer. Immaculate original detailing (think terrazzo floors, fireplaces, and paneling) and modern styling make for a dream combination.

Now, here is a penthouse of epic proportions. The main selling point is a private terrace complete with sweeping views of the Hudson River and a spa (rare for any city dweller). Although this TriBeCa pad [12] runs about $40 million, it's an entertainer's dream, complete with a gracious living room and four spare bedrooms for guests.

This West Broadway penthouse [14] redefines indoor/outdoor living. Fit with only the best finishes and loads of natural light, this four-bedroom pad will run you about $32 million. But, considering it has a private theater, chef's kitchen, and grand master suite, it's a New York City steal!
