78 Irving Pl, 5 - Gramercy - Union Square, New York
Genuine style on Gramercy's Block Beautiful. At the turn of the twentieth century, a new concept of city living was imagined: the apartment. Architects of the Gilded Age were tasked with incorporating all the grandeur of everyday living on to one floor. To do so, they broke large multi-family dwellings into small rooms with prescribed functions?a formal dining room, a piano room, a library. Today, that concept of a rich city lifestyle is reimagined in modern language at 78 Irving. Madison Realty Capital and PKSB Architects have collaborated to bring grand, flexible spaces that define contemporary elegance at this historic residence. 78 Irving stands proudly as part of the Gramercy Park Historic District, a neighborhood that retains a sense of literary nobility. From the outside, this is a building that helped coin the term Block Beautiful; from the inside, it peers tree level onto the renowned architecture that surrounds it. This is New York living with an authentic sense of place and history.
