Emotions are running so high in this year’s presidential race that real estate agents may want to start promoting buildings not only for their park views and their square footage, but for their residents’ political leanings.

Muckety examined the most recent round of campaign finance reports, analyzing total donations by Manhattan residents who had given at least $1,000. We then totalled contributions by address to see which buildings gave the most to which candidate.

Not surprisingly, most of the top addresses were clustered in a relatively small area around Central Park.

The top money-getters in the top 20 buildings are shown on the map below - M for McCain, C for Clinton and O for Obama.

Not all the addresses are residential buildings. Some contributors - including Peter Peterson and Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone - used business locations. The two private equity managers, at 345 Park Avenue, are backing McCain.

Leonard and Evelyn Lauder, reporting their contributions from the offices of Estee Lauder, at 767 Fifth Avenue, support Clinton.

Among top residential buildings, the historic Beresford, at 7 West 81st Street, went for Obama. Clinton drew the majority of dollars donated by residents of the San Remo apartments, on Central Park West.
