    High above the city, with vistas looking out to the Chrysler building to the north and One World Trade Center to the south, this unique three-bedroom condo is the epitome of New York luxury. Housed in the 88 & 90 Lex building, an architectural feat where a pre-war building from 1920 and a post-war building from the 1950s have been combined to form one stunning place to call home, is a home where opposites attract. Bits of Hollywood glamour and mid-century style are blended together seamlessly to form an interior that has a timeless, classic design.
