Last week, Gramercy’s former 21st Precinct opened it’s doors to art enthusiasts and neighborhood residents for a unique exhibit of pop art co-hosted by our client Suzuki Capital. Showcasing the work of 55 pop artists, the interior of the four-story building, located at 327 East 22nd Street, was adorned with murals and art installations throughout. Curated by Robert Aloia of Outlaw Arts, the show featured work by RAE, N. Carlos Jay, Pixote, Pesu, Salvador Elmundu, Al Diaz, URNew York, ASVP and others.

The site is slated to undergo a residential conversion to a 10-unit condominium, with CORE’s Tom Postilio, Mickey Conlon and Natalie Rakowski leading sales efforts for the project.

Each of the three spacious bedrooms offers an exquisitely appointed en-suite bath and large, custom-fitted closets. The private wing is separated by an elegant formal gallery, which offers increased privacy and convenient access to the home’s laundry area. Connected to the interior by a floating staircase is the lushly landscaped private terrace. Specimen plantings and thoughtfully imagined entertaining areas punctuate this urban oasis, designed as a three-season sanctuary. The terrace is equipped with an integrated audio system, irrigation, lighting, a gas barbecue, and an outdoor shower. Historic architectural views abound, dominated by the verdant hues of the park below.
