the whitmanThe New York Daily News reports that Jennifer Lopez (J. Lo.) has gone into contract on the penthouse condo at the Whitman Building that overlooks the beautiful north side of Madison Square Park. The 4 unit building has become the celebrity residence in the area, as her other neighbors are Chelsea Clinton and Nascar legend Jeff Gordon (now aka “J.Go.”)

The Penthouse unit has two floors with 6,540 square feet of interior space and over 3,000 square feet of outdoor space. Amenities include a full time doorman, private storage, private elevator landing, a gym and of course highly coveted views of Madison Square Park. The reported sale price was $22 million, but we likely will not know the real price until it is officially and publicly filed with the city. You can see more photos of the unit and the building at www.thewhitman.com.

We don’t report the address of celebrities in the neighborhood (even though this is widely publicized) but it is on the 26th Street block between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue on the north side of Madison Square Park. Other residential buildings on the block include the Grand Madison and 15 Madison Square North.

We get word via twitter that Cosme (35 East 21st Street) soft opened last night, and will officially open Tuesday, October 28th. You can try to get your same day reservation this week by emailing sg@cosmenyc.com.

Ok so to back up, Cosme is a restaurant featuring Mexican-inspired cuisine using local and seasonal ingredients. It’s the creation of star Mexico City chef Enrique Olvera that has been all of the talk in the NYC restaurant world since it was first announced to open in our neighborhood.

The menu is not yet available but will eventually be here: http://cosmenyc.com/menu.html

It’s another great addition to the neighborhood. Once MadParkNews gets in to eat at Cosme we will report back.
