While the world awaits the royal baby in London, The New York Palace has unveiled its newly renovated Royal Suite.
This palatial suite, larger than most NYC apartments, and costing more per night than most starting salaries - per year! - is how the top 1% of the 1% of the 1% live.
I got to experience this luxury for a few hours on a sweltering NYC summer night. Perched high above Madison Avenue, the subway a distant memory, I drank in all the details (plus super cold white wine).
The 3600 square foot suite has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, a dining room, living room, and sitting rooms, all on the 45th floor. There is a pantry where your staff can serve meals; we had canapes, cheese and our unfulfilled dreams.
The antique barber chair in one of the bathrooms is a great touch.
For an evening, we were all royalty.
