Situated 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. Standing 16 stories high, it is an early skyscraper that shows the influence of American Renaissance architecture.
Step back in time by entering the building; the lobby boasts an exquisite marble design, as do each of the 86 units apartments within. It provides a good panoramic view of the neighborhood, as 80 percent of the units face south and the rest face the parks nearby. Each apartment has hardwood floors and high ceilings, and is also provided with huge closets to satisfy storage needs. In addition, they are stocked with various necessary appliances. Despite the building's ancient architecture, each apartment is internet and cable ready. Additional amenities include a laundry room, a concierge and a live-in superintendent to attend to residents’ needs.
The building is located in the middle of an active neighborhood- 8 subway lines can be found right across from the building. There is a large farmer's market 4 days a week, restaurants, and other shopping opportunities can be found nearby.
