‘Tis The Season

18 December, 2012 posted by: CORE

Christmas Present by sparkling tree

With holiday season in full swing we thought we would put together a selection of our favorite gift destinations throughout the city. Whether you are searching for a host/hostess gift, a present for someone who has it all or a special stocking stuffer, the CORE team has weighed in so you can spend your time toasting the season rather than running around the city.

Lawrence Treglia heads to the Brooklyn Women’s Exchange when he is looking for a beautifully crafted present or handmade children’s gift. Not only will you find one-of-a-kind items but you can feel good about supporting the not-for-profit, volunteer run shop that has been showcasing independent craftspeople since 1854. Another Brooklyn stop Lawrence recommends is the BKLYN Larder.  This “celebration of food” offers an incredible selection of cheese, meat, jams, honey, oils and more utilizing sustainable ingredients. You will be sure to find the perfect holiday gift basket and grab a snack for yourself to keep your shopping momentum going. And for a sweet stocking stuffer, Lawrence  says the London Candy Co. will not disappoint. Nestled on the Upper East Side, this candy shop imports UK confections that are delicious, whimsical and sure to bring out the child in anyone.

For the homeowner with an eye for distinctive home goods, Jennifer Lafferty suggests checking out Global Table. With multiple locations around the city, this is sure to be a convenient stop you won’t leave empty handed. Nest Interiors in Chelsea is another place Jennifer heads to for a great assortment of items for the home décor connoisseur.

Scott Hartman says the Working Class Emporium in Tribeca is your one-stop-shop. With a little bit of everything, you can find goods ranging from antique to boutique with an English flair. An array of curated photography and silver tea sets make for great statement gifts and for smaller items they have unique jewelry, books and scrumptious tea biscuits.

The holidays are full of parties and we all know it’s no walk in the park to play host/hostess. So as a token of appreciation, Tony Sargent recommends picking up a stunning piece from Michael Aram’s selection of hand crafted silverware, bottle holders, cheese plates and more.  And to contribute to the festivities Oliver Brown says jaws are sure to drop when you show up with a Mille Crepe cake from Lady M bakery on the Upper East Side. Layers of light and slightly sweet decadence make for a beautiful piece on the dessert table (although it won’t last long). Or order one ahead of time for a friend who is expecting company for a thoughtful gesture to ease the stress of entertaining.

Hopefully this gift map of New York City will lessen the burden of holiday shopping and give you ideas for meaningful, unique presents for those you care about. Cheers to a wonderful season!!

Three of a Kind: Superb Studios

06 June, 2012 posted by: CORE

Though sometimes lost in the shuffle of more glamorous abodes, the studio apartment is authentically New York. These apartments are always in demand as starter homes and pieds-a-terre, and allow buyers to plant their flags in great neighborhoods without breaking the bank. Studio apartments make the New York housing stock even more vibrant, and here are three of our favorites on the market right now.

Where: 1280 Fifth Avenue, 8-E
Asking: $695,000
Listed by: CORE

One Museum Mile is Fifth Avenue’s newest masterpiece, and it’s hard to imagine a more ideal location: on Central Park, surrounded by the best cultural institutions in the city. Studios apartments on Fifth Avenue are somewhat rare, and this unit is bigger than most studios in new-construction condominiums. The finishes are top-of-the-line, and all buyers in the building enjoy the same perks, including 24-hour doorman/concierge, gym, children’s play room, teen game room, roof deck, and outdoor swimming pool.
