  • Rufus Wainwright’s Cozy Gramercy Studio By Liam Delaney | November 19, 2012

    Rufus Wainwright’s Gramercy studio is small. Only about 450 square feet at most. But he has managed to make it extremely homely. A Finnish rug on the floor depicts two whales circling each other. Mr. Wainwright and his husband, Jörn Weisbrodt who works as the artistic director for the Luminato Festival in Toronto, bought the rug at a furniture store in Amagansett right around the time they got married in August. Part of what they love about it is that it’s “kind of how we feel in this apartment: two whales in an aquarium.” The curtains are drawn on the two oversize windows despite the sunny day; they overlook nothing more than two brick walls.

  • Manhattan Still the Exception to the Rule By Stephanie Spencer | July 19, 2012

    New York City continues to prove itself as a leading force in American real estate as property prices gradually increase, a stark contrast when compared to the rest of the country. In a report released Wednesday by the Real Estate Board of New York, since 2011 Manhattan has had a 6% increase in the second quarter of this year. Neighborhoods such as Gramercy Park have been sweeping up homebuyers as its average condominium sales price increased up to 20% following 2011, as the Upper West Side has experienced a soaring 18% increase.

  • Ownership of Stuy Town Up in the Air By Daniel Muhlenberg | December 06, 2011

    When Metropolitan Life, the longtime owner of the joint Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village complex, put it up for auction in 2006, tenants made a bid to acquire the 80-acre property, but it was to no avail. MetLife ended up selling Stuy Town to Tishman Speyer Properties and BlackRock Realty for a record $5.4 billion, a decision which later proved distastrous - the two ownership groups defaulted on $4.4 billion worth of loans and abdicated ownership rights. CW Capital in 2009 took out a mortgage for $3 billion to acquire rights to the property, but now they’re looking to sell. So the tenants association of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village are again attempting to make another bid for the complex (although that bid has yet to be formed), except this time they’ve formed a partnership with a major player with deep pockets - Brookfield Asset Management.

  • Head-Banging in Gramercy Park By Adam Rothstein | August 19, 2011

    Head-banging abounds in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park neighborhood. This November, “Heavy Metal Suckfest”, a two-day festival devoted to the hardest of rockers, promises to be an event to remember. Organized by Vince Neilstein and Axl Rosenberg, co-founders of the music blog “MetalSucks”, saw a niche that they believe needed to be filled due to the lack of Heavy Metal festivals within the U.S. But don’t be fooled by the names of both their blog and the event; it’s really just a joke. “Our view is that if you don’t have the sense of humor to understand that the title is a joke, you’re probably not going to like the blog anyway,” explained Neilstein in a DNAinfo article. After an exhausting search, the duo settled on the Gramercy Theater, situated on East 23rd Street between Lexington and Park avenues, a 650 person capacity venue located in one of Manhattan’s most exciting neighborhoods.
