There’s only one way to get high legally in Brooklyn, and it’ll only cost you $7,500 a month.

The Brooklyner tower on Lawrence Street in Downtown just put its three-bedroom penthouse suite on the rental market, making the swanky top floor apartment the highest residential space the borough. If you don’t get a buzz from the pressure change as the elevator shoots you to the 51st floor, you’ll certainly be high on the sweeping views of seven different bridges, the Manhattan skyline, and of course, the Community Newspaper Group building in the Metrotech Center across the street.

Then there are the bragging rights.

“There’s certainly some cache in being at the top of the tallest residential tower in Brooklyn,” said Brooklyner Leasing Manager Elanna Jochimek. “You’ve got a unique apartment with an incredible terrace — it’s incomparab­le.”

The apartment has all the fixings of a Manhattan bachelor pad, with a full kitchen, two bathrooms, hardwood floors and spacious rooms with views. Then there’s the private terrace, with enough room to fit lounge chairs and a couple dozen other rich kids. At 585 square feet, it’s bigger than many reporters’ apartments.

The suite is being rented out as part of the 490-unit tower’s last marketing phase — the rest of the building is already 90-percent sold, according to Jochimek. Now, floors 46 through 51 are up for grabs.

Prices drop dramatically from the lofty penthouse. On the 46th floor, a one-bedroom sets you back $2,650 per month, including amenities such as a weight room, yoga room, lounges, and a dog-washing station.
