New York City -- from the nytimes, the most expensive townhouse (yes, townhouse) in NYC is $75 million. There are also 40 townhouses or condos that are $30 million or more. Majority of which are in the Upper East Side along Park and 5th Avenue.

Well, the MOST expensive places in Atlanta I'm sure are not even known to the general public and information about them is probably just distributed to a select crowd.

To my knowledge, the more/most expensive condos that you can just walk in and buy (if you have the money of course) are in the new Sovereign High Rise, located in the Buckhead ritzy area of Atlanta. Condo go upwards of up to around $4 million dollars in that building - no prices listed though for the penthouses.

In terms of single family homes, the listings in Atlanta show a current listing around $20 million, which seems to be the most expensive home (also in the Buckhead area) - at least in terms again, of what the public is aware of.

Greg, I think that (arguably) the most expensive house in the Atlanta area would be Dean Gardens in Alpharetta...priced somewhere around 45 million, I think. It is over the top.

A mansion in San Francisco in Pacific Heights was asking $65 million in 2006...and it's a fixer-upper. I'm pretty sure they chopped the price down, but I seem to remember it's still at least $30 million.
