Just to the left of the Centre of the Universe
If you asked me where the centre of the universe is, I would very quickly reply that it is at the intersection of Central Park South and Fifth Avenue in New York City. I'm just absolutely sure of it. Maybe it's because so many movies have been filmed there, I don't know but it just feels like that's where the centre of the universe is. Or maybe it's just the centre of Western civilisation? I was in Athens recently and as lovely as it was, it didn't feel like the centre of our civilisation. In any case, this particular spot in New York City, directly out the front of the Plaza hotel, makes me quite emotional. I don't know why, I suspect maybe because the last time I was there I was in my mid-20's and just about to graduate from NYU; the possibilities seemed endless. Anyway, that's enough oversharing, let's check this place out. It's just to the left of the centre.
50 Central Park South, New York City, NY, USA
You can't afford it, don't even worry about it. $50 million. Yep. But look at the views, right bang up the middle of central park. I stayed at the Essex House hotel once which was almost next door to this place and I had the same view from my room so I can confirm its amazingness. I won't go into the nuts and bolts of the listing, click here for more info if you're interested.
