In Sunday’s New York Times, Willie Neumann is reporting that Saturday Night Live comic Jimmy Fallon is marketing two apartments at 34 Gramercy Park. (Personal information alert: It caught my eye especially because one of us lived briefly in the building in the 1990’s and because it’s my favorite building on the park.)
He bought the first of the two apartments in the terra-cotta-brick building–it’s the one on the southeast corner facing the park–in 2002 for $850,000. When his neighbor died, he bought the next-door apartment,a three-bedroom, for $1.5 million. But he never carried out plans to combine the two and now the two are selling together for $3.75 million, Neumann reports in Sunday’s Big Deal column.
34 Gramercy Park.
That latter one, the three-bedroom, is well known to us, and stretches across the back of the building, facing Third Avenue. It’s enormous.
The smaller one is in the front but doesn’t have much space.
Also: Margaret (“I’m melting!”) Hamilton once lived in the building.
