Floorplan Porn: Gramercy Park Goes Greek

Michael Hirtenstein is the mogul/lunatic who is buying up most of Enrique Norten's One York to build the bachelor pad to end all bachelor pads. His purchases in the building now total five-and-a-half units, with 17,000 square feet of indoor and private outdoor space. The apartments and the build-out will cost him $35 million. For a dude who's all about the billiards room and the outdoor pool and other panty-dropping pursuits, it's surprising that his old residence, 23 Gramercy Park South, is so boring. Boring, of course, being a 27-foot-wide, four-story Greek Revival townhouse measuring over 8,800 square feet. Braden Keil reports on the Big Hirt's dealings, noting that the 1847 townhouse is being listed by two?two?superbrokers for a cool $20 million. The home will be the site of a Metropolitan Home/Showtime designer showcase and host charity events in September, and then it's all yours. Key to the park included, 'natch.
