From the City of Brotherly Love came the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers, looking for that perfect pied-a-terre in the City That Never Sleeps. What better way to watch the Flyers take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden than having a Manhattan home to call your own? Now, three years after Ed Snider bought a $7 million apartment in the Flatiron District and oversaw a top-to-bottom renovation, it's time to sell.
Snider, chairman of Comcast Spectacor which previously owned the Philadelphia 76ers NBA franchise, has listed his "magnificently renovated" three-bedroom apartment at 50 Gramercy Park, New York, N.Y., for $8.75 million.
According to the New York Daily News, Snider's 9th-floor, 2,800-square-foot unit was completely redesigned with the help of Ernest de la Torre. The home includes an entrance gallery of Parisian woodwork panels, waxed plaster walls, state-of-the-art lighting and sound system, hand woven upholstery in the master bedroom and a sycamore wood walk-in closet with electronic drawers.
In addition to the master suite, there are two additional ensuite bedrooms plus a powder room. The remodeled kitchen features luxuriously sleek marble countertop and a bench-seating dining area.
But the most fabulous amenities include the fitness center and restaurants associated with the Gramercy Park Hotel and, last but not least, a key to the only private park in Manhattan.
