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

Like the idea of life in an upscale downtown townhouse, but don't want to commit to the mortgage? For a cool $25,000/month, you can now rent out 55 Sullivan Street, a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath new development townhouse in Soho. The home is connected to, and part of, the luxury rental building 55 Thompson, meaning you'll be getting the privacy of a townhouse with all the perks of a larger building, including a doorman, concierge, and a fitness center.

The main floor is set up well for enertaining, with a huge open kitchen that leads out into a larger living space (complete with gas fireplace), which in turn leads out onto a private terrace with its own barbecue:

There are two queen-sized bedrooms the next level up, both en-suite bathrooms, and one with its own private balcony:

The house is outfitted with central air, recessed lighting, and shades, and also allows pets. Not a bad option if you're able to splash out on a monthly rent that's equivalent to a New York writer's starting annual salary.
