There’s no shortage of architecturally striking synagogues in New York City, but how many can also be yours for the night? As New York City looms on the horizon as one of our newest destinations, Starry Night fits the bill as one of the first Homes to join our growing NYC collection. This four-story religious sanctuary was transformed by famed designer Ian Schrager in 2005 and has rightly been celebrated as one the most amazing apartments in New York City ever since. Let’s take a tour.

The sumptuous shul is quite the space, featuring four floors, three bedrooms and plenty of square footage for entertaining.
The attention is well deserved as the Home’s simple yet striking layout displays gorgeous touches with floor after floor of roomy quarters, all the while maintaining evidence of its former life. It includes three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, three terraces, and a hot tub, but the residence’s pièce de résistance has to be its custom-made stained glass Star of David window — an exact model taken from the original synagogue.
Windows aside, there’s plenty of marble and Wenge wood everywhere. If you’re trying to make it rain biblical style, there’s a hefty duty rain shower in a fourth-story secluded bedroom that you can access by walking through a floor-to-ceiling glass hallway.
The ultimate open chef’s kitchen wows you with its Italian granite counters, 20′ island, floor-to-ceiling custom-built Wenge cabinets, Thermador double ovens and separate cook top with grill, Sub-Zero main refrigerator plus 2 extra fridges in the island, Bosch dishwasher and separate Fisher Paykel double-drawer dishwasher, built-in temperature and humidity-controlled wine cooler.
The 4th story presents a special floor-to-ceiling glass hallway and secluded master bedroom with a custom-built working fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and opulent master bath with an oversized Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower with steam unit, rain shower, waterfall and separate hand-held shower. Enjoy quiet time on the delightful terrace off the master with a hot tub for 8, or ascend the glass stairs to the top floor sun-drenched lounge.
