See every single leaf change color from this two-bedroom, two-bath home at 1 West 72nd Street (on the market for $7.5 million).


According to the Fall Foliage Report (yes, there exists such a thing, and it’s updated every Wednesday afternoon, here), foliage in New York City will hit midpoint to near peak this week. What better way to celebrate the explosion of color than with a survey of apartments with stunning leafy views? Here, a sampling:

This four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo at 120 East End Avenue (listed at $9.5 million) features a master bedroom, a library, and a living room all facing the 14.9-acre Carl Schurz Park, the location of NYC’s mayoral residence, Gracie Mansion.

There’s no better place to take in the season’s best color than via this 1,500-plus-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bath rental at 106 Central Park South (yours for $15,000/month).

For leaf lovers and history buffs alike, this five-bedroom, three-bath co-op at 173-175 Riverside Drive (priced at $7.6 million) satisfies, thanks to a layout in which all bedrooms and the living room face Riverside Park and the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Monument, commemorating Union Army soldiers who fought in the American Civil War.

This loft-like two-bedroom, two-bath home at 1809 Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard (on the market for $1.59 million) faces the north end of Central Park, offering easy access to the Harlem Meer, Lasker Rink, and the North Woods.

A prewar penthouse apartment at 27 Prospect Park West (for rent at $15,000/month) offers three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and panoramic views of Prospect Park in its entire leafy splendor.
