Tour on the luxurious 15 Central Park West

No. 15 Central Park West is not just another residential building in New York. Apart from being located in one of the most privileged places of the ‘Big Apple’, its 19 floors accumulate the highest number of millionaires per square meter on the planet. In fact, to be part of this exclusive community of owners will cost you at least six million dollars which is the price of the small apartments there. Well, if your budget doesn’t have enough digits to do so, you can always take the Viator – VIP tours in New York and not miss a thing. Built on the most expensive site ever sold in Manhattan, SolarZeckendorf brothers paid $401 million for it  in 2004. 15 Central Park West takes the first place in the ranking of the best places to live in the city of skyscrapers.

The CEO of Goldman Sachs Lloyd Blankfein, the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev and the actor Denzel Washington are among the rich and famous who have succumbed to its charms and paid $88 million to live there. In 2001, Rybolovlev paid that exorbitant amount of money for his daughter, so she could have the attic of the tower.

In addition, the ultra-luxury block has its own exclusive personnel. A private army of nearly 50 people watching over the millionaire residents, seven custodians, six porters, 16 buttons with white gloves characteristics, three mail deliverers, a maintenance team, four security guards, 12 part-time engineers and an administrative manager. All the orders and instructions are given from the manager of the building, Gregg Carlovich.

Working for some of the richest men and women on the planet has its benefits too. Each resident gives an average tip of between 100 and 500 dollars per employee. For instance, a bellboy can earn between 22,000 and 100,000 dollars a year just in tips, says the journalist Michael Gross in his book ‘The house of Outrageous Fortune’. It may be hard obeying orders and commands but it seems that it’s actually worth it.
