Call it 1 Central Park South — though most New Yorkers still call it The Plaza. This unit sits above the definitive New York hotel that opened its doors in 1907 and has served heads of state, the Beatles, as well as movie shoots from The Way We Were to The Great Gatsby to Crocodile Dundee.
For $55 million, you get 11-foot ceilings, views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue and separate quarters for staff. In July 2012, a controlling stake in The Plaza was sold to India’s Sahara Group for $570 million.
