NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP) -- The owner of a condominium in Hell’s Kitchen is offering a trip to outer space included with the purchase of the $85 million dollar apartment.

At 635 W. 42nd St., the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom condo is located on the 45th floor. But you get to go a lot higher than that, because it comes with two tickets on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space flight whenever it goes into service.

“That’s crazy, but I like it,” said one man named James.

But a man named Luis said too many things can go wrong in orbit.

“You be floating into space, dying, and then where’s that $85 million going to go,” he said.

But if you survive, you also get two Rolls Royces, a Lamborghini, a Hamptons mansion for the summer, courtside seats to the Nets, and a yacht.
