The 5,955-square-foot, five-bedroom apartment takes up the entire 24th floor of Walker Tower, an Art Deco office building converted to condos.

The luxury apartment has a private south-facing terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows on all four sides, allowing views of the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. The unit also has nearly 13-foot-high coffered ceilings and three wood-burning fireplaces.
