“Our job was easy – restore the building to its former glory and use reclaimed building materials and antique lighting to create a restaurant and bar that feel like they really belong in the space,” says Huw Gott, co-owner of the NYC outpost of London’s popular steakhouse Hawksmoor, referring to its location in Gramercy’s historic United Charities Building. The restaurant is located in the landmarked building’s grand Assembly Hall, under the original 30-foot vaulted ceiling. It’s the perfect place to enjoy one of Hawksmoor’s famous dry-aged steaks that are cooked over live charcoal. Ahead, see more of the stunning space and hear about the project firsthand from Gott.

This roughly 350-square-foot Gramercy studio was recently renovated to include a brand new kitchen and bathroom.

The historic St. George’s Episcopal Church is located on the west side of equally historic Stuyvesant Square Park. Around the corner at 205 East 16th Street, the former parish house was built in 1888 and converted in 2005 to a boutique condominium known as The Abbey. The homes are incredibly unique, including this top-floor duplex that just hit the market for $2 million. It underwent a recent gut renovation that features vaulted ceilings with skylights, exposed steel beams, a custom-built aluminum staircase, and a roof terrace.

This Gramercy studio is just about 230 square feet, but it’s been designed with an intelligence and sophistication that makes the tiny footprint seem less obvious or obstructive. And when you factor in that it comes with a coveted key to Gramercy Park for its $395,000 price tag, it’s even better. The apartment is located at the 38 Gramercy Park East co-op and boasts 11-foot ceilings, mirrored walls, and a renovated kitchen and bathroom.

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy Juvonen have put their incredibly unique six-bedroom Gramercy penthouse on the market for $15 million. The nearly 5,000-square-foot home at 34 Gramercy Park East is the result of combining four different apartments over three floors. There’s something funky to see everywhere you look (Fallon decorated the home with antique finds from around the world), but some of the highlights include a “saloon room” with a vintage barback, a sound-proof pantry, custom-built furniture and wall coverings, and a hidden playroom equipped with monkey bars and a “jailhouse intercom” to the upstairs playroom. And, of course, it comes with a key to the park.

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.
