As a European with no frame of reference, what would rent be like on one of those apartments bordering Central Park? I've always wondered since watching the video for Celine Dion's "I'm alive".

$28,000,000 ($8,824 /ft2) 3 beds, 3.5 baths, ~ 3,173 ft2 Est. monthlies with mortgage: $160,509

$11,000 ($98 /ft2) a month to rent, 1 bed, 2 baths, ~ 1,342 ft2

Hi-lo range. You aren't renting the pricey ones.

$11k lo-range, what a bargain!

That is..... WAY more than i was expecting.

u/justlookbelow Dec 02 '22

To put it in perspective, that small section of 5th on the Park has been America's most prestigious address for at least 150 years. The apartment buildings quite literally sit on the foundations laid for Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbuilt, etc mansions.

u/enjoyt0day Dec 02 '22

Ehhh there’s debate about that. They did a whole documentary about the 1100 block on Park Ave as the most “historic, sought after” block. NYC’s landscape changed drastically over the last 150 years too, so that long of a time frame is kind of weirdly skewed

u/UnifiedQuantumField Dec 02 '22

about the 1100 block on Park Ave

So that's why it's called Park Avenue!

Isn't that one of the countries wealthiest congressional districts? And I believe it buts up against The Bronx which is one of the poorest.

u/MrLionOtterBearClown Dec 02 '22

It’s the most expensive part of one of the most expensive cities in America. Like you’re lucky to find anything near there under 5k/mo that isn’t a closet and/ or a shithole.

I live in one of the buildings just out of frame and pay $3100 for a 1 bedroom. It’s not just millionaires.

u/Exciting_Telephone65 Dec 02 '22

That's really cool, how large of an apartment if you don't mind me asking?

u/JustHereToLurk247 Dec 02 '22

About 650 sq ft. So also not a mansion 😅

u/Exciting_Telephone65 Dec 02 '22

Still a large 1 bedroom though!

u/JustHereToLurk247 Dec 02 '22

Honestly the proximity to the park makes it all worth it. Our retriever is sooo happy. And most people dont know this but the park is off-leash before 9 am / after 9 pm.

Save your rmoney and get a decent apartment/hotel somewhere else and walk around NYC. Walking around you will see so much. NYC is a walking city and there is so much to see and do! The subway is pretty good. Just be sure to learn the routes and schedules of the subway and buses. Get the map! The weekend hours are less frequent than the weekday/work days.

anywhere from $1000 per month

Are you just making stuff up? That's the cost of a parking spot on the Upper East/West side.

1

u/ShavedPapaya Dec 01 '22

Maybe he’s talking about rent control. Lol. Some folks in NYC have lavish apartments they only pay hundreds a month for, incredibly.

1

u/Vlad_the_Homeowner Dec 01 '22

Could be, but Rent Control is fading out in NYC, it only applies to people that have been renting in certain buildings since like the 1970s. Rent Stabilization is different, and I doubt there are many for $1000/mo.

Regardless, the question was about the cost of one of those facing the park. I'm sure none of those are rent controlled. That looks like The Dakota on the lower left so we're looking at the Upper West Side, not a cheap area in general.

Edit: I looked up The Dakota on Zillow, they have 3 apartments for sale at $4.5M, $9.5M, and $20M. The two cheapos didn't have pics of the view, so it's safe to say there isn't one of the park. But for $20M you can get that view.

u/ShadowOps84 Dec 02 '22

Most places in the US, if there's a large public works project/result of one in an urban area, chances are that there used to be a minority and/or low-income neighborhood there. Highway/interstate passing through a city, downtown stadiums or arenas, etc.

1

u/PisseArtiste Dec 02 '22

Because what makes red states such shitholes are state policies generally. A city government can't deal with the issues which cause the crime generally... Endemic poverty, lack of opportunities, and easy access to weapons is a state issue. And things like lax gun control allows these shithole states to export violence to other states and even other countries.

Nevermind the money debate. The great thing about Central Park is that anyone can enjoy the park for FREE! The photo just shows the physical boundary of the park. That's normal. Come into the park and explore! Central Park is a very large park that takes up an immense part of the island of Manhattan. You can go in and out at your leisure, at almost any time. I believe that there are curfew hours, but for the most part, it's all free, all the time! A horse and buggy ride costs money, but walking, running, biking, roller skating/blading are free. Ice skating in the winter might cost you a little bit. I love walking around CP and taking photos of the trees and flowers, people watching. There are so many gorgeous spots! Just stop and look around! Did I mention it's free?

Yep the section of Central Park right across the street from it is strawberry fields where the “imagine” mosaic thing is. Love to hear the Beatles music that is often being sung there

Though humans are natural, seeing that, it doesn't seem like nature ever stood a chance against us.

as a person who walks this street all the time, the view from above is crazy to see

The green roofed building in the middle is The Dakota. A famous building, used in movies (including Rosemary's Baby), also the place where John Lennon was shot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dakota

Just out of frame (bottom), is the Museum of Natural History

I found the title ironic because it's actually the same world lmao

It's not like the border of the UES and East Harlem

Wonder how many people realize the city could have been there too but a bunch of White niMBYs got central park built because they pushed out a thriving black community to build it.

Somehow,the tumor managed to stop growing there. As if it came against a force field of some kind!

Not really. It's the very much deliberately designed urban commercial and residential area adjacent to the very much deliberately designed urban public park space.

All very much deliberate, designed, and urban.

My mind is not blown by this post and I consider it some dumb lure to get clicks or views or tiktoks or whatever you kids use these days.
