Sold by the luxury real estate agents, Concierge Auctions (opens in new tab), the penthouse has space for five bedrooms and five bathrooms, which are blessed with sweeping windows that frame the epitome of the apartment: the view.   New York is a stage for those in the penthouse of 150 Central Park South, where observers can bathe amongst the skyscrapers in the most iconic city on earth.
