Living Large: Take A Tour Inside An Exclusive Apartment At 15 Central Park West

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Nicknamed “The Tower of Power,” 15 Central Park West is home to everyone from hedge fund managers to A-list celebrities. CBS 2’s Emily Smith got a look inside one of the exclusive apartments.

Among the celebrities said to live at the residence are singer Sting and actor Denzel Washington. Inside the apartment, special glass windows have replaced walls throughout the entire apartment. The glass allows you to see multiple views of Manhattan from almost every room.

There are also stunning views of some Central Park treetops.

A 10-foot wide hallway down the middle of the apartment is lined with homeowner Ranan Lurie’s own creations. He’s an artist and retired political cartoonist for major publications including the New York Times and Time magazine.

A modest black and white kitchen and three bedrooms are all part of the more than 3,000 square foot apartment. The Lurie’s paid $11 million for it a couple of years ago. Now, it’s worth about $31.5 million.

    I am happy to see that I am not the only one that finds the “Living Large” segment of CBS News offensive! In our economic bad times with people trying to hang on to their homes and people losing their homes. The average tri-state family doesn’t need to watch all the bad economic reports and then have it change to mansions on Living Large?

    Another point of view is this story can be one of inspiration of what it is still possible to achieve here in America, if you people still believe in America! G

      In other words you could become one of the 2% who own well over half the wealth of this country — and hoard it. That’s a great inspiration. It has caused several revolutions.

        First of all as many of you are aware your attitude affects to a large extent your
        attitude in life as a well known book suggests! All of us, each and every one of us should first of all when we wake up in the morning give God thanks for sparing our lives to see another new day because we have something, life, which you can’t put a price tag on! If we are lucky or should I say blessed we would also be able to give God thanks for our BRAINS and begin to use them accordingly! One can go back to school, start an at home business or any number of things IF IF IF (3 times for emphasis) we put our brains to work and
        refuse to give up the fight or should I say the friendly competition between the
        average citizen and the corporate goal of endless profit! DON’T GIVE UP!
        God bless and have mercy on us here in the USA !

    Shame on you, CBS, for “rubbin” it in to your followers. These are difficult times for most people, and you have the nerve to show “Living Large”? Get real…

    I am of the opinion that CBS needs to re-evaluate their values before the public does so and abandons them for news and entertainment

  5. Trish Sullivan says:

    I am apalled at how out of touch CBS is with their viewers…really …a swimming pool in your brownstone!!! I doubt that the Mom and Dad struggling to feed their famuily is impressed! How about a daily report on tips to feed a family on a shrinking income!!! Now that’s real TV.

  6. Diane Nicol says:

    I saw a Living Large segment awhile ago that featured a fountain in the front or back yard. I cannot seem to find it on line and hope you can tell me which one it was and steer me to a way to get a copy of it.

    Thank you so much~Diane Nicol in Iowa

    With “NEWS” as the headline?

  8. Sharon says:

    I have been a CBS news loyalist ever since I can remember but that is absolutely about to change. I thought I was the only viewer who was incensed at the blatant insensitivity on the part of CBS news feature “Living Large.” I am thrilled to see that there are others who are equally appalled. In these very challenging economic times, with so many working class people have lost their homes or struggling to maintain them, this seemingly unending segment plays out every time I turn on my television set. I followed Maurice Dubois from Channel 4 but this segment is sending me right back there. Good move CBS!! You’re real in touch with your viewers!!

  9. Mark says:

    This is one of the most disgusting things I’ve seen on TV recently. At this time, with the economy tanking — CBS decides to show us the billionaires. Are they crazy?

    im now started em staircase and men come.

  11. Robert A. Weyer says:

    I’m finding the “Living Large” segment objectionable. Showing $17+ million homes is insensitive At a time when there are 14 million Americans looking for work, the middle class has been devastated by recent decisions by states to destroy public employment and pensions, and when people are losing their homes to foreclosure, you are “rubbing salt into the wounds.”

    1. Mark says:

      You are entirely correct.
