How much do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

Scrape your pennies together for this 9,000 square-foot, 5-story Greenwich Village townhouse on West 9th Street,'cause it'll cost you $75,000 a month to rent.

Sure, the place has glass floors, an outdoor kitchen, and state-of-the-art finishes, but the feature that staircrossed apartment dwellers may most appreciate is its 65-foot free-standing elevator finished in 'cashmere grey mist granite' (For you stairpumping masochists, the elevator is paired with a floating sculptural origami steel staircase.)

We’re pretty sure this was Steven Tyler’s inspiration for “Love in an Elevator.”
