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.

The elegant south-facing living room of this two-bedroom apartment offers unobstructed park views. Well-preserved period details are everywhere; perhaps the most notable is the dramatic and rare motif molding that covers the living room ceiling.

Known for their Parisian flair and old-world details, apartments in the building have graciously-sized rooms, high ceilings, and lots of built-in storage and shelving. There’s always room for upgrades, of course, and a renovation could turn this home into a stunning design showcase.

This apartment stands elegantly on its own (without the juggling broker, we’ll assume), but it could also be combined with the adjoining apartment, 3AR, also on the market, for one grand 3,000-square-foot floor-through. The building offers a 24-hour doorman, live-in building manager and, as mentioned, a key to Gramercy Park. Pets are welcome; pieds-à-terre are allowed on a case-by-case basis.
