Take a look inside the £59M New York penthouse at the top of the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere

As far as rooms with a view are concerned, this one's pretty much a shoo-in. 

At 1,396 feet, 432 Park Avenue is the tallest residential building not only in New York but the whole of the Western Hemisphere. 

The jaw-dropping skyscraper is the latest addition to the Big Apple's iconic skyline.

Constructors on the project topped out the building this morning, meaning it now has official status as an architectural behemoth of the city and one which towers above New York's other impressive landmarks including the Empire State Building (at 1,250 feet), the Chrysler Building (1,046 feet) and the One World Trade Center without its spire (1,368 feet). 

The good news? You can actually buy a penthouse apartment in this building - meaning you can casually take a bath over the finest view in New York - from next year.

The bad news? It will set you back an estimated $95 million (around £59 million), according to owners CIM Group and Macklowe Properties

But hey, we can dream. 

Located right in the heart of Manhattan, the luxury penthouses come with floor-to-ceiling windows and state-of-the-art design, including a breakfast bar that looks straight out onto the city thousands of feet below.

The building itself comprises 30,000 of prime property space, with a giant swimming pool, a massage therapy room, a billiards hall, a luxury restaurant (complete with giant jewel-encrusted chandeliers) and observation decks with spectacular views of the city.

Familiarise yourself with the inner echelons of New York's most ostentatious sky-high living space with a look around a model penthouse apartment and facilities at 432 Park Avenue, below. 

... When do we move in?
