The Puck Penthouse

The Field Team’s exclusive Puck Penthouse apartments are truly remarkable apartments for those who seek convenience as well as style in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Manhattan (if not the world). There are six apartments in the building currently available for sale. The prices range from $20 million to $66 million. The price doesn’t tell the whole story about how posh these apartments are, so I included some pictures that I shot when I visited the duplex unit last week. Professionally shot photographs and details about the apartments can be found on Sotheby’s website.
