You'd probably rather be spending less on rent than you currently do, but there are some serious ballers out there blowing a whole lotta moola on their monthly rent—like, more than most people's annual income. Real-estate site Zumper sifted through their 10,000+ rental listings in NYC to bring us the most ludicriously expensive apartments on the market now. The results include some of the tastiest real-estate porn we've seen in a while, including posh townhouses on the Upper East Side and a trendy, made-for-partying penthouse near Union Square. 


If it makes you feel bad, comfort yourself with the fact that at least folks in Tokyo are probably paying even more. Without further ado, here are five of the most expensive listings in NYC on Zumper available right now:

    This three-bedroom in Midtown East (lobby pictured above) is a penthouse in the Waldorf Towers. Amenities include hotel concierge services, marble bathrooms and a formal dining room that can seat 20. Oh, and it comes furnished like this too.

    Sure, it'd be nice to have 1,365 square feet to yourself, but the real draw to this one-bedroom at the Pierre on the Upper East Side is the 700-square-foot private terrace with views of Central Park.

    This UES townhouse has five bedrooms (and about as many square feet), three floors including a basement, several fireplaces, an outdoor terrace, a skylight, a sauna and top-notch kitchen appliances. As an added bonus, you can pretend you're Cher Horowitz whenever you descend this grand staircase.

    Here's another Upper East Side townhouse, but hey—it's almost $20K less! This six-floor palace offers all the standard amenities (wood-burning fireplace, concierge-attended lobby et al.), plus a spacious private garden.

    Get ready for it—this Flatiron penthouse has its own private pool, which would make you pretty much the most popular person when summer hits. Next to the rooftop oasis, you'll find a kitchen and bathroom, and on the floor below, even more outdoor space (1,500 square feet in total) with a terrace sporting a projector for alfresco movie nights. As for what's inside? Three floors with four bedrooms, "floating" glass staircases, exposed brick and plenty more.
