How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

Earlier this week, we gave you five facts about The Clebourne, one of the Upper West Side's marquee co-ops. But there are plenty of other "name buildings"—old, established ones, and more recent ones that have become more known—throughout Manhattan, and a number of them have apartments hosting open houses this weekend, which means a chance at a sneak peek for house-hunters (and, yes, some looky-Lous, too). Here are a few:

20 West 72nd Street, Apartment 1105. A bright one-bedroom in a building half a block from Central Park named the Franconia. Asking price: $700,000. Open house: Sunday, March 27, 2 pm to 3 pm. 

350 West 42nd Street, Apartment 19F. The Orion is one of the first glass-curtain-wall skyscraper condos to stake its claim on this stretch of 42nd Street. This unit has one bedroom and one bath, and has open views of the city. Asking price: $1.275 milliion. Open house: Sunday, March 27, 1:30 pm to 3 pm. 

1280 Fifth Avenue, Apartment 19A. This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath is in a condo built by starchitect Robert A.M. Stern and known as One Museum Mile. Asking price: $2.95 million. Open house: Sunday, March 27, 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
