There’s something titillating about high-end real estate, especially when it comes to Billionaires’ Row — home to some of the world’s most exclusive and high-priced residences. So, naturally, when architectural star photographer Evan Joseph posted a series of sleek interior shots at the uber-slick and sky-kissing tower at 111 W. 57th Street, they did not go unnoticed.

What could be more thrilling than a sneak preview of a 1,428-foot tower that’s slated to bring 60 residences to Midtown starting at $16 million? The Real Deal got a chance to ask that question when they were tipped off that interior shots at 111 W. 57th were online … before they were taken down.

The photo faux pas put the spotlight on this one-of-a-kind, super-slim tower, as well as the celebrity photographer often charged with bringing New York City’s most exclusive real estate to view. Joseph’s massive portfolio is truly cool and expansive, and definitely worth a look-see. He’s been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, US Weekly, Stern, New York Magazine, HOME Magazine and has been selected as the cover of The New York Times Homes Magazine over 20 times.

His galleries tell the eye-popping story not just of the NYC skyline transformation, but of the incredible interiors that get gobbled up by offshore money parkers, millionaires, billionaires, celebrities, and the occasional oligarch.

One day, the photos of 111 W. 57th will be back online. For now, you can peruse his website to click through seriously slick photos of NYC buildings, whose listings here on StreetEasy use Evans’ work:
