Park 23- 295 Park Avenue South

Park 23 is a luxury apartment rental building located in Gramercy Park. Originally the home of the world’s first children’s protective agency, Park 23 was converted to a luxury rental building back in 1982, and its pre-war rental apartments have been modernized at regular intervals ever since. The gracious pre-war dimensions remain in evidence in every apartment for rent at Park 23, as high ceilings, private terraces and generous dimensions are the rule. But while the apartments for rent at Park 23 are unquestionably pre-war apartments, they match their classic pre-war design elements with cutting-edge modern conveniences, as well, such as luminous new hardwood floors, new kitchens and new marble baths.

Units and Pricing

There is currently just one unit for rent at Park 23, a one bedroom unit listed for $3,450/month. The average price per square foot at Park 23 is $74, which is quite high given the building’s lack of amenities.  

Features and Amenities

All apartments have new kitchens and new marble bathrooms with oversized medicine cabinets and banjo counter, air conditioning, oak floors, high speed Internet access, and insulated windows. Many apartments also have high ceiling, terraces, and duplex layouts. Park 23 is a doorman building; residents also enjoy laundry service and a concierge.


Park 23 is located in the heart of the Flatiron District, just steps away from a bevy of entertainment and transportation options. The subway is located at the corner of the building. Many of the city’s finest restaurants, bars, and clubs are close by. In addition, Park 23 has a dry cleaner as well as a laundry room, and a supermarket is located just one block away. Step out your doorstep and you’ll find that you’re just a few blocks from Madison Square Park, a short walk from Union Square, and even closer to the bars of Murray Hill.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

They say living in New York is all about location, location, location – and Park 23 boasts a great downtown location for anyone who wants to live close to the action in an area that still feels like a neighborhood. With a Starbucks, a Morton Williams supermarket, a Duane Reade pharmacy and a New York Public Library all within a block or two of the building, residents of Park 23 enjoy great convenience to the things they love. The building is literally right next to the 6 train, so getting around Manhattan is a cinch. Meanwhile, the residences have lots of light and pre-war touches, such as gorgeous hardwood floors. They’re not enormous, and the amenities aren’t flowing in great quantities, but for young professionals looking for a comfortable space and a great location, this Gramercy Park/Flatiron apartment building is a great fit.
