Thanks to Michael Gross' forthcoming history of Manhattan's safest haven from the parvenu-lined streets, we've spent the better part of our day gawking (really, there's no better word) at the floor plans and interior images from 740 Park Avenue (unit 14-D featured above).

Admittedly, we're afflicted with the spicy tingle of class envy, but we don't really care how offensively wealthy the Bronfmans and Chryslers residing within its walls may be. The sheer size of these places has us focused on one thing: Trying to figure out how many Beirut tables we could fit in one of these units.
