About this property
Key and direct Gramercy Park views. Apartment 4A is a bright and airy one or two bedroom and one bathroom cooperative. The apartment has seven windows and three exposures. The kitchen is open and large enough for a dining table. The bedroom is tucked away in the back and has northern and southern exposures overlooking the Brotherhood Synagogue. The walls and floors are thick, instilling quiet throughout. The windows are recently installed, and the finished ceiling height is 9 feet high. The apartment is a truly rare offering and perfect for the buyer who is inspired by light and location.
Built as the Hotel Irving in 1903 at the southeastern corner of Gramercy Park, the hotel joined a unique enclave of elegant buildings and townhouses surrounding Manhattan’s only private park. In that era, the hotel offered “parlor and bedroom suites with a private bathroom and meals in the restaurant for $30 per week.” Apartment #4A is the combination of a park-facing suite and the adjacent hotel room.
The neighborhood is globally recognized and evokes the creativity, history, and elegance of New York City. The location continues to stand firm in any argument about which is the best. Everything you want is here starting with an oasis of calm in the middle of Manhattan. Nearby Union Square has an unrivaled farmers’ market, transportation, and regular excitement from the city and seasons. Restaurants with Michelin stars dot the neighborhood alongside cherished cafes, wine bars, and all of the convenient services you expect.
