Robert De Niro’s former New York penthouse occupies two floors, affording panoramic vistas of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. Dating from 1920, the Greenwich Village building was originally a manufacturing facility for maraschino cherries. The magnitude of this newly updated contemporary home is evident upon arrival—an open, two-story foyer has a wall of full-length windows that look out onto an interior courtyard. There’s also a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room, a media room, a library with another fireplace, and an eat-in kitchen. On the second floor, the sprawling master suite features a third fireplace, two walk-in closets with windows, and a steam room. Two levels of landscaped terraces provide a tranquil haven in the midst of the city. For those with multiple cars, the building also provides seven parking spots in a private garage.
