Unparalleled views of Central Park—and Donald Trump for a neighbor

Share this Article

You'll have unobstructed views of Central Park from your living area and bedrooms from this lofty perch, as well as proximity to this election season's most provocative figure: Donald Trump. This furnished two-bedroom rental is located in Trump Tower at 721 Fifth Avenue, in the same complex as the residence and campaign headquarters of the Donald (as well as less controversial public figures, like Bruce Willis and Cristiano Ronaldo.) Naturally, the unit, listed by Keller Williams, has an asking price befitting such luxe digs: You'll pay $15,000 per month for this aerie over the city's backyard. 

The unit has been recently renovated, and now it's a vision in white: You'll find a bright and somewhat minimalist look in the walls, ceilings, and countertops, with herringbone floors providing some contrast. Oversize, north-facing windows make the most of the apartment's proximity to Central Park, and when you look out you'll be greeted by a sea of green. As you'd expect in a rental at this price point, the kitchen is outfitted with up-to-date, stainless steel appliances, and the living room with elegant features like a clean-burning fireplace. 

The two bedrooms, positioned on either side of the living room, also have eyes on the park. In the master, you'll find a walk-in closet at the entrance, as well as five more along one wall (no worries about storage space here). The second bedroom also features two large closets, and both have their own en-suite bathrooms. 

The master bath includes a vanity with double sinks and walk-in shower, and both feature sleek wood-grain marble. There's an additional half-bath off the living room, as well. 

In addition to the opportunity to rub elbows with celebs, building amenities include full-time doorman service, as well as a live-in super and concierge; there's also a gym and garden and, of course, name recognition, especially in this election year.
