Neighbors, what neighbors? 7 NYC apartments that take up the entire floor

That old saying that "the walls have ears"? Only true if there's actually someone on the other side of said walls. Besides the added privacy, the extra space of a full-floor apartment is an obvious bonus, whether it's a single story of an actual house or a penthouse on the top level.
A rare, budget-friendly option to add into the mix: this $2,599/month Bay Ridge three-bedroom, which comprises the entire floor of a prewar townhouse and includes details like stained glass, a chandelier, a formal dining room, and free parking spots.
In this $12,995/month 2.5-bedroom loft in Soho, you'll get plenty of exposed brick and wooden beams, 11-foot ceilings, a chef's kitchen, laundry room, floor-to-ceiling storage closets, and a built-in entertainment system... if you're willing to deal with a fifth-floor walk-up, that is.
The $22 million penthouse at 975 Park Avenue takes up the entire floor of the building both inside and out—it's surrounded by wraparound terraces on all sides. The recently renovated prewar apartment includes a formal dining room, media room, fireplace, gourmet kitchen, "butler's pantry," and custom closet space (and the building includes a full-time doorman and elevator operator).
