Apartment 46 in The Dakota — the iconic co-op building at 72nd Street and Central Park West — has been on and off the market for over eight years. Guess what? It's on again for $14.5 million.
But, even if you have the cash, you might not have a chance at apartment 46. The Dakota co-op board is famously picky: it has denied everyone from Billy Joel to Judd Apatow to Madonna.
Yoko Ono still lives in the building where John Lennon was murdered, and it holds dual titles as New York's most exclusive and unusual address.
Craig Schiller and Meredith Specht hold the listing.
Built in 1882, the four bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom apartment hit the market eight years ago for 19.5 million.
High ceilings and spacious living areas are stereotypical of The Dakota, as are spectacular views of Central Park.
What this 10-room apartment lacks in views, it makes up for in elaborate décor.
It appears The Addams family helped with the dining room décor.
This painted black room looks like the perfect spot to host a seance on a stormy night.
While the rest of the interior is more eclectic, this chic gold room with a polished black bar is pure elegance.
The kitchen includes a large hidden pantry, so you can stock up on essentials during the winter.
Enjoy a few strips of bacon in this country-inspired space. Just make sure the pig wall doesn't see you.
The listing also mentions a shaving room. Could that be a half bath for gents or an in-home barber shop for one? Either way it sounds pretty great.
Complete with a balcony, this bedroom would make a great library.
