Ok, so maybe the Batcave is already taken. What’s the next best thing for a superhero HQ/villainous lair? If you have $18 million to spare, you can get yourself a cool clock tower penthouse. The Clocktower Building was once a cardboard factory built in 1915, now it is home to a three-story penthouse measuring 6,800 feet with four 14-foot glass clocks overlooking Brooklyn and Manhattan.

There’s one clock for each of the four walls of the penthouse, giving you unparalleled views of the city. Also, you can enjoy a nice bath in your luxurious tub while looking at the Statue of Liberty. If that’s not enough viewing space for you, you can head up into the sky roof cabana. It also has a ceiling that extends from 16 feet to 50 feet in height. Couch potatoes need not worry for there is a glass-enclosed, three-story elevator that runs up the center of the unit.

Suddenly, Clocktower Man doesn’t seem to be a bad alter-ego name after all.
