While we hate to invoke the economic apocalypse (de riguer as it may be to do so) $99,000 per month seems a bit much at the moment, no? For those who can still swing it, however, this Midtown West luxury rental might prove to be a steal. Let us compare and contrast: Cityfile just dropped its list of New York's 20 most expensive apartments: Presiding at the top is 502 Park Avenue (Trump Park Avenue), a 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 6,200 square foot stunner. Rent: $200,000 per month. 100 East 50th Street (Waldorf Towers) takes the silver medal, with 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and 3,800 square feet for a competitive $95,000 per month. For a comparative steal, we might turn to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's 5 bedroom, 4-plus bathroom dorm/ fashion empire H.Q. at One Morton Square -- $45,000 per month for 5,725 square feet. Back to our Midtown West Manse: here, $99,000 rents a ginormous 8,000 square feet of custom-designed everything overlooking, well, everything else: Central Park, Times Square -- you get the picture. Location unknown, but we're thinking around 57th and 8th Avenue.
