If living in Sky—a 71-story tower in Midtown West that boasts expansive views of the Hudson River—isn't enough for you, now you can rent a penthouse at Vue, the development's ultra-luxury addition. This one-bedroom perch, on the 65th floor, delivers high-end touches and custom designs, along with unobstructed skyline and water views. It's listed for $5,535 per month by Bold New York, a pretty penny for the area, but you'll be spared a broker's fee—plus, you're paying for those vistas, along with some impressive amenities. 

The interiors have been designed by David Rockwell, who helms an award-winning design and architecture firm. You'll enter through a foyer into the living room, where floor-to-ceiling windows are outfitted with custom shades for when the heights become too dizzying. The adjacent open kitchen offers quartz countertops with a sleek finish, as well as upscale fixtures and high-end European appliances.

In the bedroom, you'll find more stunning views; the en-suite bathroom boasts porcelain tiles, a walk-in rain shower, and soothing cove lighting under the cabinetry. 

You'll find a washer and dryer in the unit, as well as custom wood closets. Though the apartment isn't huge, you'll be able to stretch out in the development's indoor lap pool or outdoor pools; there's also a billiards lounge, basketball court, children's playroom, and private park, as well as concierge service and a virtual doorman.
