BBQ with a view for $12k a month



Starting Nov. 1, you can rent this three-bedroom penthouse at 110 Third Ave. near East 14th Street.

Here are more details from the listing, which arrived on Streeteasy at the beginning of the month:

The open Chefs kitchen features Volcanic Basaltina counter tops and Subzero and Bosch appliances, including dishwasher and washer/dryer. The master bedroom features an on-suite bathroom with his and her sinks and an 8’ Mr. Steam full body spray showers and sound system. This condominium is a phenomenal residence for anyone looking to live at the top of a prestigious New York City luxury building with a full time concierge and doorman. In addition, this luxury building has a fully equipped fitness center, illuminated contemplation garden, and cold storage for Fresh Direct.



Going rate for the great BBQ views and Mr. Steam — $12,000 a month.

Looks like the scene from Poltergeist where they roll the tv out of the motel room.

People who can afford 12k BBQ and Mr Steam aren't going to entertain the thought of living in the Student Village.

But only if they throw in that rocking chair!

Clever how they used a floor mat under the BBQ to partially conceal the huge crack in the balcony.

Wait is this place located in mid-town south, upper west east village, northwest east village or dorm city?

I am curious what you could buy with a $12,000 monthly mortgage instead of renting this place.

Great location if there is a sequel to "Shame".

If you have big bucks, little taste and prefer to live in the epicenter of NYU's student population, we have an apartment for you! The kitchen - like every room in this warehouse-chic gem - is open (look mom! no rooms!) and features poured concrete counter tops, a mini fridge, and the phone number to a local 'same day wash and fold' laundromat.

The bathroom has running water and a poo bucket.

Panoramic views of Pinkberry, Duane Reade, Walgreen, the Verizon Fios kiosk and 99 Cent Bargain Bazaar Value Store.

And for you adventurous types, there's a run-of-the-mill grill on the distressed balcony!

What, no vomitorium?

Thinking of opening a public vomitorium in any one of the many empty storefronts around the nabe. With floor to ceiling windows everyone will be able to get in on the fun!

Of course the contemplation garden is illuminated. One can't have residents stumbling around in the dark while trying to reflect on how to get vomlet stains out of the Basaltina counter top.

When the Great East Coast earthquake hits, which happens about every 500 years or so, all these people living in giant fishbowls are in for a big surprise.

The Street Easy site has a 1910 built date?

Hey! Didn't anyone like my drawing on the fridge? Anyone?

Pretty sure that the grill violates the city's fire code.

Telling is the illiterate listing. To the broker, I say: "on-suite" Uh, it's "en suite," douchetard.

If you check Fire Department Laws for NYC I believe you will find that any outdoor BBQ in a residential building is not really legal. Charcoal BBQs are hot open flames which can start fires easily with an ember and gas BBQs require that you have a pressurized propane tank indoors without a permit...and forget about bringing one in an elevator!!! This person may want to change their listing.

The only legal NYC rooftop or balcony BBQ must be a reaidential model grill fueled by natural gas. No propane and no charcoal, those can only be used outside a building, like in a backyard and there must be a water source for fire safety.
