I'd live in Queens, specifically LaGuardia Airport, for a grand total of 30 minutes right before boarding a flight headed to Monaco.

I love it!!

This is THE building: 432 Park Avenue Luxury Apartments in New York City
After looking at that website, I'm changing my answer. Those are some ridiculous views, it's almost like you're looking down at the Empire State Building.
