One of the perks of being elected president of the United States is relocating your family to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C. Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Barack Obama have all graced the hallowed halls of the White House. For unconventional President-elect Donald Trump, home is where the heart is, and that home happens to be his $100 million penthouse in midtown Manhattan.
According to his advisers, Trump is considering splitting his time between Washington, D.C., and New York once he takes office. Why the attachment to his New York digs when he can host (and impress) overnight guests in the Lincoln Bedroom?
It’s all about location, location, location — and what a location it is! Situated on Fifth Avenue right in the heart of midtown Manhattan, the three-story, 66th-floor penthouse boasts panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and Central Park.
Designed by Angelo Donghia in the 1980s, Trump’s penthouse gets its style inspo from the French rococo extravagance of Louis XIV and the Palace of Versailles. Given its ceiling-to-floor marble columns and floors, 24-karat gold accents, crystal chandeliers, and massive Greek sculptures, we get why the White House might seem like downsizing for Trump.
