6 New York fireplaces worthy of Santa

Even little kids know Santa Clause would never make it past the surly night doorman. No, a visit from Kris Kringle requires a proper working fireplace—​an increasingly rare find in the city. Here, six hearths perfect for Christmas Eve (and the rest of the year). 

At this $995,000 Park Slope two-bedroom co-op, you can play in Prospect Park a few blocks away and come home to a toasty fire. Perfection.

Also in Park Slope, this $1.495 million two-bedroom co-op takes up a brownstone's entire parlor floor—the second and grandest floor in this kind of historic house. Decorative fireplaces abound in the apartment, but the one in the living room is surrounded by built-in bookshelves (complete with rolling ladder!) and an ornate, carved mahogany and marble mantle.

This $9.75 million Upper East Side townhouse has 13 rooms and six floors, along with three wood-burning fireplaces lined in custom brick in a herringbone pattern.

You'll find two wood-burning fireplaces in this $9 million four-bedroom Greenwich Village co-op, including one in the dining area (above). The 18-foot vaulted ceilings and double- height windows aren't bad either.

The living room in this $6.995 million four-bedroom East Village townhouse centers on a large hearth, which is broad enough to show off all your family photos and tchotchkes.
