Sitting atop the Bronx's highest point is the Chapel Hill mansion. Built in 1928 by a religious order for Jesus Christ to live in when he returned to life, JC obviously never moved in, so now you can rent it.
The order disbanded and sold the castle in 1958, and the current owners have spent 10 years renovating the 15,000 square foot property. No expense was spared; the ceilings are done by the same contractors as the Plaza Hotel, and they used the same company as the Vatican for the upstairs mosaic.
And what's the rent, you ask? A palatial $35,000 per month.
