This is Old World New York living –before everyone got soft! Yes it’s a walk-up with no laundry and the finishes are basic at best - but it is absolutely the greatest location on earth. Sheridan Square, Village Cigars and Joe’s coffee are within earshot of these three bedrooms (about $3600). You will also find yourself within walking distance of the West 4th Street subway, Washington Square and everything that makes the West Village the most desired residential neighborhood in New York. If you want pools, spas and meditation rooms go to Jersey City, but if you want to immerse yourself in the environment that has served as the muse for world famous writers, actors, painters and poets for decades then consider grabbing one of these old world charmers.
415 Bleecker is the quintessential West Village townhouse apartment. And in fact, only three apartments exist in this old world building on Bleecker, between Bank and West 11th Street. You will be grateful that it’s a walk-up as this building is located one short block from the world famous Magnolia Bakery. With all the excuses to not go to the gym, that it could be dangerous living with so many world class restaurants right out your door. Bleecker Park is nestled right across the street and gives you an absolutely charming tree top view.
A building of this architectural distinction would normally stand out in a neighborhood, but in this landmark-heavy historic district, it blends seamlessly into the charm of its surroundings unlike many other post war buildings. Perry Street is the archetypal quaint West Village street with trees townhouses and the developers of this building wanted to make sure that they didn’t disturb this aesthetic.
The cult rock glam French label has finally opened a store in Manhattan. No need to fly back to Paris every time you crave one of their feather-like cashmere sweaters, you can now indulge at the new Meatpacking District boutique which offers all of their lines: womens, mens, kids, accessories and fragrances.
The Shenandoah at 10 Sheridan Square is my favorite doorman building in the village. The gothic structure was designed by Emory Roth and built in 1929. Fortunately, the original details are well preserved, making the historic structure stand out in the exclusive Sheridan Square location. The lobby has a gothic church feel and the entire original detail has been kept, which is very rare for a 100% rental building. It actually feels like a co-op and is kept like a private ownership building. The higher floor apartments soar above the neighboring buildings and you get amazing views. The casement windows are also brand new and the apartments are pin-drop quite.
On top of being home to generations of artists, musicians and writers, Sheridan Square boasts some of Manhattan’s most amazing architecture. Fortunately exempt from the construction trends of recent decades, the area still holds its history and beauty. In the 1890s, Sheridan Square was named after Union Civil War General, Philip Sheridan.
One Sheridan Square “The Sheridan Condominium” is tucked away in one of the most beautiful Greenwich Village blocks. Built in 1920, the building rises 9 floors and has 45 loft, studio, one and two bedroom apartments.
Barrow Street holds an authentic piece of Greenwich Village history and architecture. It is thought to be named after the artist Thomas Barrow, but its unclear where it officially got its name. In 1897, Michael Hallanan, an Irish immigrant who invented a rubber horse shoe pad, ran his business on the Southeast corner of Barrow and West 4th Streets. After earning enough money, he built an eight story commercial loft, now known as 9 Barrow Street. His initials “MH” are still on the building. According to The New York Times, Hallanan was known as “the father of Sheridan Square”. He actually urged local officials in the 1890s to name it after Philip Sheridan, a Civil War Union general.
If you’re looking for Vintage Manhattan, with an Alice in Wonderland kind of twist, make your way to the Greenwich Court. Nestled at the intersection of Union Square, Greenwich Village and the West Village, this six-story building has a little bit of everyone in it: the fashionista, the subdued and sleek, and the hipster looking to take advantage of the nightlife abounding on every corner.
This is an anomaly for the West Village - how about a studio or one-bedroom apartment with enough closet space for even the most compulsive shopper? You are also getting an incredible location with loft style apartments for about 20% less than comparable properties.
If you are willing to give up some of the finer finishes and the grand lobby at the Archive you will gain some funk and uniqueness by living at The Sheppard House. I especially love the studios facing the Hudson River - you walk in and see the sunset framed by the enormous arched windows. Also, if you ever get a chance to check out the corner apartments you will be treated to the double arch windows.
Two Horatio Street, is one of the most prestigious addresses in the West Village. Built in 1931 by Alexander and Leo Bing, also know as the Bing & Bing brothers, 2 Horatio is one of the most sought-after downtown full-service pre-war co-ops.
1 Jane is located on one of the quaintest blocks in the West Village. Situated on Greenwich Avenue (not Street) and Jane Street, this pre-war elevator building has the lead framed windows and beamed ceilings most village renters are looking for. It’s also located dangerously close to Corner Bistro and Elephant and Castle - so you may not want to live here unless you also get a membership to Equinox which is also just a block away.
Consider 110-114 Horatio a miniature version of its sister. It has a smaller lobby, a smaller building altogether, and lower price-points to match. The post-war renovations to this pre-war structure will appeal to people seeking a more intimate, personable and tranquil feel in what is otherwise a very hot and happening neighborhood. For those wanting to be in the heart of it all without carrying it into their apartments, this is the sister for them.
95-97 boasts a grand lobby and two 10-story towers for its residents. Everything is bigger in this building, including the prices… not a surprise. For those who want more space, more lobby and more roof-deck, willing to pay the price, this sister will be your best friend.
In April 2004, the Hotel Gansevoort transformed the meatpacking district by being the first full-service luxury hotel in the area. It’s hard to miss the glass-sheathed balconies and moving zinc-colored lights. Although the space was originally a parking lot, the hotel was developed by the father son team Bill and Michael Achenbaum, designed by Stephen B Jacbos, and interior designed by Andi Pepper. Upgrading the neighborhood, Gansevoort provides a modern one-stop shop to enjoying the meatpacking district, with a large celebrity following. The hotel allows people to rendezvous and experience fine dining, nightlife, a rooftop garden, a pool and bar, spa treatments, all in one building with truly upscale living conditions.
Have you ever ordered something at a restaurant just to shut the waitress up? Well I have, and generally it’s not a good sign about the meal – but this time, I was proven wrong.
Located on a cobblestone hideaway at the lower west end of Manhattan, 100 Jane Street finds itself at the intersection between the West Village and the Meatpacking District. A red brick building with spacious units, modern appliances and even some duplexes.
These twin glass towers at the far west end of Perry Street, across from the Hudson River Park are one of the most talked about buildings in Manhattan - and IMO a wonderful creation from world-renowned architect Richard Meier. Units were quickly purchased by celebrities and fans of Meier, who knew what type of product Meier produces.
Howdy Y’all. Well, those weren’t the exact words of the hostess but it was close enough. The warmth of her greeting was only the beginning of a pleasurable experience. When walking in to the restaurant, the ambiance instantly captures you. It was everything down to the rustic wood floors, the whimsical trinkets adorning the wall, and the picnic table cloth. One can only hope the food and drinks are as good as the atmosphere.
Since I come from a Southeast Asian background, I have a long-standing appreciation for fermented fish and pungent curry, but I can see how others might be timid. One trip to Fatty Crab, however, and the Chili Crab will make you have a change of heart.
The Printing House was built in 1911 as a commercial loft building and converted into condominiums in 1979. One of the taller buildings in the area, it towers over the townhouses of the village at 10 stories high and contains 185 apartments. It is a pre-war building with a Italian Renaissance façade, the high ceilings and unique lofty feel of the apartments. There is a park directly across the street which allows for open northeast views of the city. One of the best gyms in the city, The Printing House Gym, is a fitness and racquet club located on the roof of the building. There is also a pool!
What do you do when you’re in the mood for a real steak burger? You go to RARE Bar & Grill - a privately owned company located on the heart of the West Village on Bleecker Street for the past three and a half years.
According to Eric Hammer the general manager, RARE is known for its upscale burger concept with a casual vibe, “people come here for lollipop wings, steakhouse burgers, and our french fried tasting basket.”
What can I say about this amazing gelato shop? I love it! I am a big fan of ice cream and gelato to begin with and when I went into this place, I was in heaven.
Joe the friendly guy behind the counter was more than happy to let me taste the different flavors of delectable gelatos from these silver canisters. After sampling a few flavors, I settled on getting an order of Crema Di Grom - a popular favorite and signature flavor - which has an egg base, biscuits, and chocolate.
10 Downing is located in the heart of New York’s Historic Greenwich Village. This doorman elevator building is steps away from NYU, Washington Square Park and right where the West Village and SoHo converge.
Palazzo Chupi at 360 West 11th Street was built by the world renowned artist Julian Schnabel as an ode to his wife, Plazao Chupi is one of the most unique buildings in the Village.
“Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping you just when success is almost within reach.”
Marlo Scott built this place as “sweet revenge” on corporate America after she lost her job. For Marlo, building her own business was the perfect solution and in my opinion, it was her calling.
Sweet Revenge is the ideal West Village café.
The Archive is most recognizable for its massive, red-brick, and double arched windows. It was originally built in 1899 and was converted to a rental building by Rockrose Associates in 1988. This historical landmark is one of the West Village’s most prestigious rental buildings. There are 479 apartments, which are uniquely designed as loft-like duplexes with soaring ceilings. Additionally, the building has a rooftop deck that boasts 360 degree views of the Manhattan skyline.
Located on the former site of the Superior Ink Factory, Superior Ink Condo is comprised of 67 apartments and seven townhouses, rising fifteen stories high in the low rise neighborhood of the West Village.
95 Christopher Street is a pre-war building owned and operated by BLDG Management, which has an excellent reputation for maintaining its properties. The staff is highly responsive with a full-time doorman and a team that devotes its time to meticulously cleaning and updating the property. The building maintains its pre-war charm with the arched hallways, intricate moldings, and high ceilings, yet it is modernized with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. It is also a pet friendly building so furry friends are welcome.
Creative types would enjoy these luxury West Village condos. Located on Thompson and Bleeker, the building blends into the low rises of the area with its brick and gray trim. Its 140 apartments consist of studios, one-bedrooms and duplexes. Studios, in particular, offer some 700 square feet, a balcony and an enormous closet, making them highly desirable. The vibrant area buzzes with the bars, clubs and restaurants that define the nightlife one would expect from the heart of the village.
Located at the northern tip of Greenwich/West Village on the corner of Greenwich and 8th Avenues, One Jackson is out to make a statement, and a green one at that. With high-end finishes and an entirely glass façade, the building strives for high-end luxury.
165 Charles Street is one of Richard Meier’s three glass towers in the Far West Village. The glass-walled apartment houses were tagged as ’splendor in the glass,’ but we guess that depends on how comfortable you are - the view goes both ways.
