Built in 1905 in the French Renaissance style by Henry J. Hardenberg, New York's iconic Plaza Hotel and Residences was once home to the Vanderbilts and the Astors and is now a National Historic Landmark. The sprawling 20th-floor penthouse--and the only triplex--features a 2,300-square-foot reception space, which includes a living room, formal dining room, and home office overlooking Central Park. A large eat-in kitchen, wine cellar, informal dining area, and media room occupy the east wing of the home, which has views of Fifth Avenue. The master suite makes up the entire 21st floor and boasts two baths, a wet bar, and a terrace. Down on the 19th floor, accessible via private elevator or the apartment's main staircase, there are three more en suite bedrooms, all with up to 12-foot-high ceilings and enviable views of the park.
