In an unassuming building at 207 East 21st Street, this co-op is a simple, sunny home that has a lot to offer for its $625,000 price tag. Not only is it in a prime Gramercy location, but it’s a true one bedroom, has a lovely terrace, and is just generally a really nice little place.

Though this Gramercy Park apartment is a studio, the bedroom is in a separate nook and there are 11-foot ceilings, making for a seemingly much larger space. Located at the Foundry at 310 East 23rd Street, a converted factory building that’s now a 136-unit condop, it’s asking $449,000 and has been completely renovated into a sleek, contemporary home.

If you’re holed up in a small apartment with nowhere to escape your significant other or roommate, this split-level Gramercy listing very well might leave you with major apartment envy. The one-bedroom co-op at 215 East 24th Street just hit the market for a cool $750,000, and it’s full of industrial accents–exposed brick, tons of original cast iron, wooden ceilings beams–combined with a contemporary glass-walled second floor that has enough space for a bonus bedroom and airy office.

After the fallout from a failed IPO and subsequent stepping down from the company, WeWork founder and former CEO Adam Neumann has been slowing unloading his real estate empire. The latest listing is for his three-floor Gramercy penthouse at 78 Irving Place. He and wife Rebekah Paltrow Neumann bought three units in the pre-war condo (that’s half of the total units in the building) in 2017 for a total of $35 million and then embarked on a major combination and remodel.

Penthouses don’t often come with six-figure price tags, but this Gramercy gem at 310 East 23rd Street is asking just shy of $700,000. The top-floor condop has a slightly narrow layout, but it still feels super spacious thanks to a double-height great room with nearly 14-foot ceilings and large north-facing windows that even have views of the Empire State Building. A vaulted skylight above the bedroom loft lets in even more light.  Read more

First things first: If you should happen to move into this elegant pre-war residence at 34 Gramercy Park East, we hope you like Jimmy Fallon. Because he owns five apartments in the building (Richard Gere also owns a unit here). Built in 1883, it’s also NYC’s oldest co-op, known for its Aesthetic Movement architecture and stunning lobby with a Tiffany glass ceiling. The $2.495 million asking price for this two-bedroom co-op also gets you Gramercy Park views, and, of course, that mythical key to New York City’s only private park.

On the second floor of the new Fotografiska outpost in Gramercy—a branch of the Swedish photography museum—is a sumptuous new restaurant that’s quickly becoming one of the city’s most sought-after reservations. Verōnika (named after the patron saint of photography) was designed by Roman and Williams (known for their work on similarly chic Le Coucou, Upland, and La Mercerie) who worked closely with restaurateur Stephen Starr to define the space. Informed by the tradition of grand European cafés, the 150-seat restaurant is filled with elegant details and textures: soaring 20-foot ceilings, warm brass chandeliers, wood-trimmed arched doorways, velvet banquettes, and leather chairs.

It’s a Christmas Eve miracle. The gates to Gramercy Park will open to all for one hour on Dec. 24, the only time of year the public can enjoy the exclusive greenspace. The Gramercy Park Block Association on Friday confirmed to 6sqft that the private park between East 20th and East 21st Street will once again open from 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. for caroling this Christmas Eve. All other times of the year, the park is only accessible to residents with one of the 400 keys, provided to those who live in the 39 buildings surrounding the square.

This charming fifth-floor pre-war co-op just two blocks from Union Square, asking $849,000, has plenty of room to expand beyond its current two bedrooms. Situated around a central kitchen, the apartment even comes with instructions (in the form of alternate floor plans, shown in the gallery below). On a quiet landmarked townhouse block in the heart of Gramercy, the Beaux-Arts co-op building at 210 East 17th Street is a well-maintained walk-up.

The new L-shaped residential building at 121 East 22nd Street represents Rem Koolhaas‘s architecture firm OMA‘s first ground-up Manhattan project; developers Toll Brothers City Living have released new photos of the eye-catching structure on the border between the Gramercy and Madison Square Park neighborhoods, highlighting its unique design. The new condominium residence is comprised of two blocks that straddle an existing tower, the 11-story School of the Future, constructed in 1915. The building’s north tower has two interlocking planes that meet to form a distinct, three-dimensional corner. The 13-story south tower features an “undulating grid of punched windows” overlooking 22nd Street.
