432 Park Avenue: Tallest Residential Building In The Western Hemisphere October 15 2014

The tower 432 Park Avenue has finally stopped to grow,  which means that it has reached its  1,396-foot height, making it not only the tallest residential building in New York City, but also the entire western hemisphere.

The 96-story building will welcome its first residents next year, giving them a breathtaking view stretching from Central Park to the Atlantic Ocean and from Lower Manhattan, where the Freedom Tower is located, to Connecticut. A place in the 104-unit building starts at $16.95 million.

Let's be honest — most of us could only dream of having an apartment with views of all of New York City. So is better going back in our humble 800-square-foot abode and ogle at the lifestyle of the rich and famous, pretending that we're taking a bubble bath while looking at a Lego-sized Empire State Building.
