Movie-set views of treetops and 19th-century townhouses in the heart of the West Village!
This pre-war, elevator coop offers views of open sky, lots of sunlight through southern exposure, and ceilings high enough to enjoy it. The old-school hardwood floors have been flawlessly redone, and through-wall a/c units mean your windows remain completely unblocked. Translucent pocket doors seamlessly divide the bedroom. There's a great kitchen with everything you need, and a full, renovated bathroom.

The historic building is located on one of the prettiest blocks in the West Village, on a one-way, tree-lined street across from townhouses that pre-date the civil war. Close to the express A&D / local C,E,&B trains at West 4th St, the local 1 at Houston, in one of the most culturally relevant and beautiful neighborhoods in the world.
Perhaps no NYC neighborhood has had more of a direct influence on 20th century pop culture than the West Village. Known as ‘Little Bohemia’ as early as 1916, by 1938 the West Village was home to the country’s first racially integrated nightclub, giving white audience members some of their first exposure to acts such as John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Miles David, and Billie Holiday. By the 1950s, the area was ground zero for multiple genres of pop culture innovation, from the music of Woodie Guthrie and Jimi Hendrix to the writing of James Baldwin and Jack Kerouac. There are currently around 30,000 New Yorkers residing in the West Village and about 38% are homeowners. 139 homes have sold in the last three months at an average price of $3.349m, and there are currently 136 homes available for sale.
