With a last name that can't help but conjure images of your crusty high school art teacher, Alex Birkenstock has a surprisingly chic eye when it comes to home decor. Just step inside his New York City apartment, perched atop Broad Street's covetable building, The Setai. The completely renovated penthouse is now on the market for $12,995,000 according to Curbed, but we can't understand why the ugly-sandal heir would ever want to part with this 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom urban haven. The stunning views paired with all that exposed brick is giving us a real estate headache. Really, it's all just too perfect.
