Not everyone has $28,000 a month to drop on rent, but for those that do, enticing apartment options abound.

This Greenwich Village condo, 165 Charles St., #13, with a private balcony perched above the Hudson River, makes for a tantalizing look, whatever your bank balance. The listing has been on Zillow for 62 days, and the asking rent recently went down, so there may be room to negotiate.

The apartment is advertised as a three bedroom, three bath, but the floor plan shows it to be more like two bedrooms and two and a half bath, with a partially partitioned off nook (above) that the floor plans indicate could be used as a study.

That aside, the floor plan is plenty spacious. Other main attractions include the 11-foot ceilings, and the floor-to-ceiling views over the West Side Highway, and south to the new World Trade Center.

The sprawling apartment has an open kitchen and living room at its most picturesque, west-facing end, lined on one side by a 35-foot balcony (pictured at top).

The kitchen itself has Sub-Zero appliances and a striking white island.

The master bedroom has its own long hall lined with closets, two of them walk-in, and the entrance to an en-suite bathroom.


The second bathroom is substantially smaller, but it too has a spacious closet, and an en-suite bathroom with a tub and high-end fixtures.

There are wood floors throughout, and the building, built in 2004, has 24-hour doorman and concierge service, a gym, a lap pool, a movie screening room, and a residents' lounge.
