Trattoria Spaghetto, located on the corner of Bleecker and Carmine, holds special memories for me. I’ve been going to this restaurant for 30 years. Back in the day, it was just a simple lunch counter with an Italian mother and her Italian son screaming at each other while they made the best minestrone soup in the village. There was nothing like sliding up to the lunch counter and being greeted by three kinds of fresh baked Zito bread. There were always big piles of parmesan cheese and olive oil on the table for dunking. Later in life, this became a great first date place - two bowls of soup and split the Conchiglie Torero, a fantastic pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, sweet peppers and tomato sauce. You are out the door for under $40 bucks and could enjoy a romantic walk down Bleecker Street before the night was over. The salads are excellent and I especially love getting the sautéed broccoli and garlic. There’s not a dish here that I’ve tried and I haven’t loved. They have great outdoor seating in the summertime and in the winter, you can enjoy a steaming hot bowl of soup while you watch the snow fall on Father Demo Square. It doesn’t get any more New York than that. Just remember, they are cash only.
The Petersfield is a coveted Village loft condo building, with stunning interiors. The hallways are exceptionally wide, and apartments are spacious with 12” ceilings. With pets allowed, a 24 hour doorman, and rooftop deck, this is a great option for buyers looking for full-service in a great location.
111 Fourth Avenue is one of the best Greenwich Village full service loft co-op buildings. This conversion of a utilitarian loft building was developed by Teitelbaum Holdings Inc., and designed by Warner, Burns & Lunde. The residential conversion created 11 different units on each floor, all with 13’ 6” ceilings and 10-ft. high windows. In conjunction with the great Union Square location, this building offers very spacious units. Some have sleeping lofts. Residents enjoy a landscaped roof deck, laundry room on each floor, central air conditioning & heat, and storage. The building does not allow parents to purchase for children, and there is a “no student” policy.
In a prime site in the heart of Greenwich Village and Lower Fifth Avenue, 30 Fifth Avenue was built in 1923 and converted to a co-op in 1970. With concierge services, a planted roof garden, storage, bicycle room, and a laundry room, this doorman building has all the amenities in a stellar village location. Three blocks from Washington Square and one block from Balducci’s food store, the building is not far from several subway stations and cross-town buses run on Eighth and Ninth Streets.
One Fifth Avenue is a historically prestigious building in Manhattan. Candace Bushnell, author of the book that was turned into a little TV series by the name of “Sex and the City”; found One Fifth Avenue interesting enough to write a novel about it. “One Fifth Avenue” tells the stories of five women who live at the building, and their trials and tribulations. The building is a classic New York Co-op with plenty of history, while still having modern appeal.
27 West 16th Street is a unique elevator/walk-up building. That’s right – elevator/walk-up. The front façade actually lead to two adjoining buildings – the front building is an elevator, while the rear building is a walk-up.
If you’ve walked anywhere near 445 Lafayette Street lately, you’ve probably noticed this distinctive tower. With its wave-like structure and blue-tinted floor-to-ceiling windows, it is easily one of the most distinctive residential buildings in the city.
If you’re new to the area or just want to give your palette something different to dine on, then try Acme Authentic Southern Cajun Cuisine. It’s a favorite of mine when I am looking for some down home Cajun food in a friendly atmosphere.
Arturo’s is a restaurant that has seen fifty two years of life in a city where restaurants come and go faster than fashion trends. Set aside from all the posh spots of the neighborhood, Arturo’s is a place where you can still get great service, a quality, affordable meal and authentic coal oven pizza. It’s one of the original coal oven joints and still going strong as the quality of New York pizza dwindles. The waits at dinner time and on weekends show just how popular it is.
This rental building literally sits across the street from history. In 1968 the gay rights movement was practically started across the street at The Stonewall Inn. Just another reason why New York is the greatest city in the world-it all starts here.
You can live across from history in this seven-story rental building, where they have recently begun renovations on the kitchens and baths. What you get here is an unbelievable location and apartments with charm and character-many of the layouts are unique and some of the corner units offer landmarked arched windows facing west and framing Sheridan Square.
The Carl Fisher House at 62 Cooper Square is one of the most prestigious condominiums in Greenwich Village. The building, along with two adjacent row houses, has been converted into 26 high-end loft apartments. The name comes from the fact that the main building housed Carl Fischer’s world-renowned music publishing company since it was built in 1926. Facing a small park on 7th Street, this location is only one block away from St. Mark’s Place, and convenient to Greenwich Village, Noho, and the East Village.
Conceived by the famed Bing & Bing Brothers, 45 Christopher Street has been converted into a beautiful white glove, full-service condo in the heart of the Greenwich Village Historic District. Originally built in 1913, this attractive brown-brick building is now home to 124 apartments.
It’s always great to see a pre-war building with history be restored in a way that ensures its integrity, while giving it a breath of fresh air. This is the case with 21 Astor Place. The location of the building is key as well- you’re only a short walk from the best of the East Village, NoHo, NoLita, SoHo, Union Sq and the West Village.
Having found many clients great apartments at Hilary Gardens, I’m excited to tell you about this downtown building. Many times in Manhattan, one will have to compromise amenities in order to get an ideal location- this is certainly not the case here. Located at 300 Mercer Street between Waverly Place and West 8th Street, Hilary Gardens is truly in the ideal Greenwich Village location.
Located at the crossroads of the East Village, Noho and Greenwich Village 1 Astor Place is the one of the more distinguishable buildings in the Cooper Union area. It is a mid-rise rental building which climbs 12 floors and has 175 loft apartments.
For people looking to live in Greenwich Village, I often recommend The Albert Chambers. Built in the 1930s, the building retains its original character and has always reminded me of old New York.
II Cantinori has been a great neighborhood addition since it opened its doors in 1983. Chef Antonio Cinardi is still with the restaurant today helping the kitchen turn out some fantastic Italian food.
1 University Place on Washington Square reminds me of The Heiress. I saw Cherry Jones perform this play on Broadway and every time I walk into the lobby, I think of her. Her performance was breathtaking, weird, quirky and charming-just like this building. Example: the doorman looks exactly like Bluto from Popeye and he spends most of his day talking with tenants and bringing general good cheer to the neighborhood.
After ten years of rave reviews and top Zagat ratings, Babbo continues to thrill as NYC’s #1 Italian restaurant. Set in a townhouse in Greenwich Village, Babbo boasts an epic wine list which compliments Mario Batali’s airy Italian fare. He incorporates unique flavors that you wouldn’t normally associate with Italian food, such as the dusted dried orange and wild-fennel pollen atop goat-cheese tortellini, which showcases Batali’s skill at subtle flavor. The tasting menu will literally knock your socks off and has silenced many critics. If there is one restaurant in the city worth the big price tag, it’s Babbo.
The John Adams is a white-brick apartment building built in 1963 and converted to a cooperative in 1980. It stretches from 12th to 13th Street on the west side of the Avenue of The Americas - directly in the heart of Greenwich Village.
