Located at 31 Union Square West in Gramercy Park, the Bank of the Metropolis displays a true classic landmark. Designed by Bruce Price, the property had already become a landmark in the late 1980s. At 16 stories tall, it is one of the first skyscrapers to show the influence of American Renaissance architecture.
Step back in time by entering the building; the lobby is exquisitely designed in marble, as is each of the 86 apartment units within. It provides a good panoramic view of the neighborhood, as 80 percent of the units face south and the rest face nearby parks. Each unit has hardwood floors and high ceilings, and also has huge closets for any storage needs. In addition, they are provided with various necessary appliances. Despite the old architecture of the building, each apartment is Internet and cable ready. Additional amenities include a laundry room, concierge, and resident superintendent to serve resident needs.
The building is located in the middle of an active neighborhood: 8 subway lines can be found right in front of the building. There is a great farmers market 4 days a week, restaurants and other shopping opportunities can be found nearby.
