This one is owned by I-Banker Peter Huang, and its history fits right in with the legendary 1929 co-op's other storied apartments.

According to Apartment Therapy, the standard height is 57 inches "On Center", meaning the middle of the piece is at 57 inches height, the hook will be higher. They get this measurement as it is the average human eye-level.
