This Uber-Luxury NYC Apartment Comes With…a Trip to Space

Oh, and a private chef, a house in the Hamptons, and three luxury cars.

The Big Apple is chock full of ghost stories, from haunted houses to bars whose customers never left. Uncover more about the city's hauntings on a Ghosts of New York Tour, and who knows, you might even run into the spirit of Edgar Allen Poe or Harry Houdini.

If you're wondering what kind of perks come with an $85 million apartment, I understand—that's a hefty price tag, even in the mind-bogglingly pricey real estate market of Manhattan. But, one uber-luxury unit in the Big Apple is pushing the boundaries with its amenities, offering the likes of a house in the Hamptons, two Rolls-Royces and a Lambroghini, a private chef, and even a trip to space as part of its price tag.

Yes, you heard that right: New York broker Daniel Neiditch will see your first-class gyms and verdant rooftops and raise you a spaceflight. It's all part of the appeal of his latest listing, a 24,000-square-foot apartment at 635 West 42nd Street, near the buzzworthy Hudson Yards.

In a story that transcends real estate news to become a comment on the .000001% in New York, Neiditch tells The New York Times that offering such over-the-top amenities “give[s] them the basis of a New Yorker’s lifestyle." Which, apparently, means two tickets on a flight to space, as well as "two Rolls-Royces and a Lamborghini; a yacht with docking fees for five years; season tickets to Nets home games; dinner once a week at the two-Michelin-star restaurant Daniel; a private chef for a year; a butler; and a $2 million construction allowance for renovations."

And I thought the roof deck on my Park Slope apartment was a selling point!

"Mr. Neiditch said he is not just selling an apartment; he is selling an immersive experience, even if many luxury apartments are pieds-à-terre that go empty while their owners are gallivanting where the ultrawealthy gallivant," The Times reports.

Looking to really be shocked? Consider that the apartment is only number 3 on Curbed's list of the most expensive NYC apartments—hardly a surprise when you recall January's record sale of $238 million for one penthouse. Better start saving, kids.
