New Billionaire’s Row bragging rights have arrived.
The Landmark Penthouse, the only penthouse in the original Steinway Hall portion of 111 W. 57th St. — and the second tallest in the Western Hemisphere — has hit the market for $21 million.
Spanning 5,269 square feet indoors with terraces that add 3,800 square feet, the Landmark Penthouse was a space that Frederick T. Steinway wanted to use for his home.
When he couldn’t secure the zoning permits that he needed to make it a residence, it turned into one of New York’s oldest and most renowned recording studios.
Charlie Parker and Miles Davis recorded jazz classics here, along with other music superstars like Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and Elvis Costello. Barbra Streisand had her first-ever recording here in 1955 when she was just 13 years old.

Most recently, the Landmark Penthouse has been reimagined as a three-bedroom, 4½-bath apartment that’s reminiscent of living in a townhouse. An elevator that provides access opens into a foyer with a white stone floor, and a long hallway to the right leads to the showstopping great room, featuring 26-foot vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace and glass doors that open onto a 1,000-square-foot wraparound terrace. Views of the city skyline from here are hard to beat.

The kitchen, outfitted in stylish custom cabinetry and Gaggenau appliances, and the two guest bedrooms are also on the entry-level while the second floor is dedicated to the primary suite.

Savor the Central Park panoramas from the 2,500-square-foot terrace or retreat to the white onyx bath and luxuriate in the massive free-standing copper soaking tub. There’s also a second terrace that overlooks Steinway Hall’s restored copper roof and lantern.
