If you’re a hopeless romantic like me, chances are you’ve read the New York Times’ famed Modern Love column, and you’ve already binged the Amazon series based on the beloved weekly essays. As fate would have it (and you know the most forlorn among us LOVE a fateful encounter), you can now live in the gorgeous co-op featured in Anne Hathaway’s episode of the series. Let’s set the scene for some romance, heartbreak, and everything in between, shall we?

This stunning two bedroom, two bathroom co-op was built in 1925 and designated as a New York City Landmark in 1977—not entirely unlike the building where I live, which in 2018 was designated as a Chicago “place where my cheating boyfriend dumped me” landmark!

The home’s great room, featuring crisp white walls that accentuate the pop of the warm pine floor, overlooks views of the basilica and gardens of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. The space is breathtaking—kind of like my ex’s many excuses as to what the heck he’d been up to in the weeks leading to our explosive demise! The room’s alcove is the perfect spot for a work space, or a meditative nook where you can ponder life’s greatest questions like, “How did I waste so much of my life on such an emotionally underdeveloped man-child?”

The modern kitchen boasts custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Cook up a dinner party for your loved ones or an alibi for your doting girlfriend who just wants to help you reach your potential!

The spacious master bedroom hosts an antique Italian crystal chandelier and a wall of built-in closets. The master bedroom is the true marvel of the sleeping quarters, with a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and marble mosaic tiling. Savor your third glass of pinot noir while you crank up Beyonce’s “Lemonade” and cast that YouTube bang-cutting tutorial to the wind—you’re going rogue, baby, just like HE DID! 

Pick yourself off the opulent tile and get some fresh air. The building’s Victorian Gothic exterior, adorned with stone, terra cotta, and Philadelphia brick, is a head-turner. While you won’t find a more gorgeous home to love, you never know who you’ll bump into in Nolita. If you’re a hopeless romantic like me, you know someone sweeter is just around the corner.
