Happy, peaceful Gramercy home in a bright, sunny ninth floor one-bedroom with a southern exposure overlooking the roof of a church. Pin-drop quiet with walls of windows in the living room, hardwood floors throughout, original fixtures, and beamed ceilings. The jewel-box kitchen features a gas stove, Bosch dishwasher, custom cabinetry, and marble countertop.
This apartment carries the good energy of having been the long-time home of a well-known opera singer. The space has since been renovated, replastered, and well-maintained. Southern and western exposures abound, and all rooms have windows that attract natural light throughout the apartment.
Built in 1928, the Gramercy Arms is a 10-story, 92-unit art-deco building with a recently renovated lobby and hallways. The building has a live-in super, large basement laundry, free bike storage, rentable storage lockers, and very low monthly maintenance.
Ideal transport links and local amenities. The 6 train is on the corner and the N/R train is a block away. The 4/5/Q express trains and L train are a few short blocks away. The Italian restaurant Novita—a neighborhood gem—is in the building. The British steakhouse Hawksmoor is across the street. The contemporary photo gallery Fotografiska (the Renaissance Revival landmark building) is on the corner. The surrounding blocks are dense with culinary finds and nightlife. Convenient grocery shopping with a Morton Williams across the street and Eataly, Whole Foods, and the Union Square Farmers’ Market nearby. Gramercy Park is one block south, with Irving Place's and Park Avenue South’s excellent restaurants and shops including Bedford Cheese, Union Square Café, and Gramercy Tavern.
Many other great downtown neighborhoods—West Village, East Village, Chelsea—are conveniently nearby. Extremely fast Grand Central commute and easy distance to Penn Station. Zip home from Broadway plays or take your favorite canine to the dog run in Madison Square Park. Enjoy this quiet, sunny home in one of Manhattan’s great, and most beautiful, neighborhoods.
