Building: Bank of the Metropolis at 31 Union Square West in Flatiron
31 Union Square West built in 1902-03 as the Bank of the Metropolis was designed by Bruce Price and designated a landmark in 1988. This early skyscraper shows the influence of the American Renaissance sensibility celebrated at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. The board of directors of the Bank of the Metropolis included Tiffany, the founder of Tiffany’s, Steinway the piano maker, Sloane of Sloane’s, and Arnold of Arnold Constable, all local businessmen. This building has been magnificently converted to residential luxury lofts and boasts an exquisite marble lobby, which makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. 80% of the building faces south and the others face the park so really not a bad “seat” in the house. Full time doorman, live-in super and laundry room all available for your convenience. In the middle of it all and 8 subways in front of your door. You can be anywhere in the 5 boroughs within minutes. Also enjoy the Farmers market 4 days a week, restaurants galore and the prettiest people in NYC. You will be the envy of all your friends and you will not want to leave once you have experienced life here.
