Among the many classic New York status symbols, townhouses stand out for their multiple stories, expansive living areas, and incredible privacy. With that in mind, some developers are taking all of the benefits of a townhouse and transporting them to the sky in cloud-piercing duplex condominiums. With all of the cachet of a brownstone, these exceptional homes also include panoramic, penthouse-level skyline views, and the result is the best of everything New York has to offer. Here are some of the most luxurious examples.
