Maid's Quarters: $1.5 Millon

And that's the low-end.  If you want your maid to have good quarters, you can spend $3.5 million.

But your wine can be housed for a mere $158,000.

All of this from this graphic in the NYTimes, accompanying an article about the tallest residential building in NYC, now under construction, many of the apartments of which are sold, some to wealthy foreigners.

John Kenneth Galbraith used to have great fun poking at apparent excesses like this; not sure we have anyone like that today.
