There are fireplaces, and then there are fireplaces.

Its horseshoe opening is ribboned with carved marble and cast-iron. Plenty of other period details remain, including inlaid floors and stylized ceiling medallions.

50 East 77th Street
Instead of a typical placement, the gas fireplace in this four-bedroom, five-bath co-op is angled in a corner of the sunken living room. Proportioned to complement the 13-foot-ceilings (the mantle is taller than usual), it cozies up a grand space. It’s in the Carlyle House, which means residents have access to the Carlyle Hotel’s services, including the dining room and spa.
Monthly maintenance: $4,878

Slide Header For me, the high point of the show is this, which manages simultaneously to be a painting, a force field, and an electromagnetic visual discharge. This is an artist sloughing off old consciousness, making something he doesn’t even know is art, giving up nearly all known languages of painting, and maybe violating the laws of nature by making something that seemingly puts off more energy than went into making it.
