The 5,725 square-foot New York penthouse that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen bought in 2004 for $7.3 million is now on the market for $11,995,000. The penthouse has 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and two private elevators. Although the twins helped create the space, it's mostly been a rental since it was built. The New York Observer's Manhattan Transfers blog interviewed Stribling & Associates vice president Charlotte Van Doren about the penthouse.

“It’s very dramatic, very dramatic; you walk in and it’s right there, bang,” Ms. Van Doren said. That living/dining room, the master bedroom, the master dressing room (“as large as a large maid’s room, basically”) and two extra bedrooms have open harbor views facing south.

New York's Hidden Places

The New York Times examines pockets of tranquility in the heart of New York City. Neighborhoods such as Pomander Walk (pictured here), a hidden street on the Upper West Side, are nearly invisible to passersby. In fact, because delivery people could never find the street, residents renamed it to a more delivery friendly 265 West 94th Street.View full image.

The properties on these streets tend to be small, and many have been carefully restored to recall a bygone era. They rarely come up for sale, but when they do, they can command hefty premiums.

“You almost never see these kinds of properties come on the market, because the people who move into them almost never move out,” said Beverly Sonnenborn, an agent with Sotheby’s International Realty who specializes in properties in Greenwich Village, where many of these historic properties exist.
