The Associated Press

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S: Well-to-do New Yorkers now want five-star hotel amenities in their own apartments, like room service delivered from world-renowned restaurants, a private health spa and, most importantly, a smiling concierge on call at all hours.

TIPS APPRECIATED: One on-site concierge at a high-end rental complex juggles requests for nearly 1,000 apartments, the priciest of which rents for $15,000 a month.

THE OVERSEAS WELL-HEELED: The luxury craze has been partly fueled by the influx of deep-pocketed foreigners from places like Russia and China, who are streaming into New York City in search of "trophy apartments."
