Gramercy House

I love this ‘new series’ from the NY Times. They say: This is the first in an occasional series of articles offering inside looks at homes that stand out in the landscape of New York and other cities. It’s every voyeur’s dream! Ok, so I’m not really a voyeur, but I always found it amusing to imagine what goes on in a house or apartment or building, or am just curious and would like to know what’s inside, or how it looks.

Anyway, this first one is a one-storey house near Gramercy Park on 19th Street between Irving Place and Third Avenue, and used to be a carriage house. According to wikipedia, a carriage house, “also called remise or coach house, is an outbuilding which was originally built to house horse-drawn carriages and the related tack”. In this case, “at one time the wealthy residents who lived in homes along the park lined the block with carriage houses, most with a second story where the chauffeurs stayed”. Kinda reminds me of Black Beauty a little, minus the fact that Black Beauty was England, not New York. 😉

Currently, two Argentinian men live there, and have dinner parties every week. Fun!

Isn’t that kitchen gorgeous? And I love the disco ball! haha
