Park Block East 82nd Street

Park Block East 82nd Street

East 82nd Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues is known as the gateway to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is lined with fine houses. 9 East 82nd Street is one of a row of four with classical brick and limestone facades on the north side of the block. Numbered 7 to 13 , all were built in 1895.

This 25' building with five floors has a centered ground floor entrance with an imposing cast-iron door, a large vestibule, a generous entry hall and an elevator. It measures 9,016 square feet, according to the public record.

For many years, the house has housed art galleries, including La Boetie, which specialized in pre-war European art. The gallery owner Helen Serger bought the house in the early 1970's and moved her gallery here from Madison Avenue.

The present owner is an art historian, and living here, so near to the Met, has provided her with a strong link to the culture of the city. Interior features include the original bannister above the second floor with tooled spindles. The second-floor paneled living room boasts a large, unique stained-glass window with medical and musical motifs. It was designed by one of the earlier owners. Two terraces overlook a landscaped garden.

Ceiling heights are tall. On the staircase landings, ceiling heights were measured at 10' on the first floor, 12'8" on the second, 11'8" on the third floor, and 10'9" on the fourth.

The house presently has eight apartments, and all will be delivered vacant. Showings: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
