Last week I dusted off my turntables for my first gig of 2012, djing a private party for The Prince Group at one of their exclusive penthouse listings in downtown manhattan. I love throwing or spinning these types of parties since it's a great way to get work and non-work friends together for drinks and in this case, some delicious food from Luke's Lobster (I confess, I ate 3 shrimp rolls - they're just too good!).

The space is amazing. The building, 20 Pine, The Collection, is not unlike most residential buildings in the financial district. It was the home of Chase Bank, and after 9/11, was converted to a residential, amenity-driven, luxury condo building. The penthouse itself is on the top floor and served as the former office of David Rockefeller himself. The showstopper of the unit though, is the 1300 sq ft terrace that overlooks everything between the east river, empire state building, hudson river to the statue of liberty and parts of brooklyn. It truly is a breathtaking view. I can only imagine the entertaining that will be going on once the future tenants move in (jealous!).

I've posted a few of my favorite snapshots but more than 150+ images reside on the Prince Group's blog. And if you are looking for a new home to buy or rent or sell in NYC, I of course have to plug in the best brokerage firm in new york city.
