Many of the duplex walls are lined with recycled New York City Subway tiles. Guests enter the apartment through an old subway car door, which also adorn all of the closets in the house, adding a touch New York grit throughout the space. Kushner reportedly bought the Subway remnants for only $200!

Furthermore, the architect created a floor comprised of cast-off deli counter cutting boards. Salvaged wood and stainless steel are used throughout the space to echo the subway aesthetic.

Like any penthouse, luxury is not kept to a minimum. The upstairs features a sloping aerodynamic ceiling, and opens up to a retractable roof where a meditation pool and terrace await.

An ode to the great city of New York, and inflated real estate prices, all of this for just under $2 million through Sotheby’s Homes.
