This impressive Flatiron penthouse at 30 East 21st Street gets instant attention for the sloping double-height wall of framed glass that opens the home up to the city skyline–and the sky. But the $4,995,000 co-op has more enviable attributes: Off the living room is an equally sizable private piazza.

A new public art installation opened in the Flatiron Public Plaza as part of the neighborhood’s yearly “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” event. This year’s artwork, called Interwoven, comes from design firm Atelier Cho Thompson and features colorful interactive archways.

SERRA by Birreria, the popular Italian restaurant on the 14th-floor rooftop of Eataly, has transformed itself for the spring. “Serra will instantly transport guests to the Italian countryside,” the restaurant tells us, as it will become a beautiful, blooming greenhouse featuring seasonal dishes with ingredients sourced from the local Union Square Greenmarket. A portion of the proceeds during this time will be donated to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Children’s Garden, where children 2 to 17 years old have the chance to plant and harvest their own crops and flowers.
