Audrey Gelman, the co-founder and CEO of coworking company The Wing, is now the owner of Ditmas Park’s most expensive single-family home. Gelman and husband Ilan Zechory bought the nearly 5,000-square-foot Colonial Revival home for $3.2 million, as the New York Post first reported. Typically, homes go for around $2 million in the south Brooklyn neighborhood, which is known for its large Victorian homes. Gelman’s six-bedroom home boasts features not many New York City homes have, including a wrap-around front porch, finished basement, and a two-car driveway.

As co-working firm The Wing continues to grow, they’ve moved into a new home that takes the idea of a corporate headquarters to the next, uber-cozy level. The company has taken over all 22,000 square feet and four floors of the former Stuyvesant Polyclinic building at 137 Second Avenue with a sprawling office space that fits the brand’s design-forward signature: pastel colors, branded wallpaper, chic custom furniture and a host of features for women, including a lactation room.
