To prove that understated hasn’t quite had its day, the exciting triplex penthouse The Crown, at New York’s 212 Fifth Avenue (212fifthavenue.com), offers urban luxury at its most classic. Carved from the shell of an early 1900s neo-medieval building (one of the city’s first skyscrapers), the three-floor apartment overlooking Madison Square Park has more living space than an average townhouse, and includes not one but two terraces large enough to accommodate a pool and art installations. The epitome of grandeur, it comes with a fittingly grand price of $68.5m, likely to set a new benchmark for NoMad.
