Despite suffering from a 30 percent drop year-over-year in median sale prices, Tribeca still managed to rank first as New York City’s most expensive neighborhood, followed closely by Soho. Property Shark released this week its list of the 50 priciest areas in the city in Q1 2018 and unsurprisingly, nine out of the top ten are located in Manhattan. Notably, the West Village witnessed an 88 percent year-over-year increase with a median sale price hovering $2.1 million. And the Flatiron District, which ranked as the most expensive neighborhood in the third quarter of 2017, fell to sixth place, with a median sale price of $1.85 million.

Fashion icon and long-time West Village inhabitant Cynthia Rowley is selling her three-story, 25-foot-wide townhouse on 16 Morton Street for $17.5 million. Rowley first picked up the West Village home for $10.99 million in 2014, according to the New York Post. In addition to its sheer size, the townhouse features amenities like a curb-cut garage and over 18-foot tall ceilings. The 6,000-square-foot space also comes with additional air rights.

One-half of this colorful condominium at 1 Morton Square was once home to former couple Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. In happier times, the celeb pair owned a portion of this condo before selling it for $2.2 million in 2007. After being combined, the condo listed for sale again for $10 million in May 2015. Though it’s still for sale–at a reduced $7 million–the spacious four-bedroom pad is seeking yet another incarnation as a high-priced rental, asking $23,999 a month.

This apartment, occupying the garden floor of a historic West Village apartment building, is sure to charm you. Located at 225 West 10th Street, the five-story, 20-unit prewar brick building was constructed in 1893 and converted to condos in 1997. (It’s a walk-up, making the ground-floor location of this pad even sweeter.) This bright, well-designed condo is now up for rent asking $4,100 a month. And as you might expect, it comes with access to its own private garden space.

Looks like a fun place to live

pier 40, DFA, rising sea levels, future new york

Local multidisciplinary creative firm DFA has come up with a concept for the rehabilitation of Manhattan’s rapidly disintegrating Pier 40 that would provide housing and other services, but would also adapt to the predicted rising sea levels of future New York City. Dezeen reports on the firm’s fascinating idea for a future-proof housing, commercial and recreation complex that rises from the Hudson River in the West Village and would be able to remain above water in the event of rising sea levels, while addressing the city’s dire need for affordable housing and the ability to resist flooding as a result of climate change.

For $15.995 million, Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi has finally sold his duplex apartment at 150 Charles Street, a celebrity haven in the West Village. But the “Livin’ on a Prayer” singer isn’t moving too far away; he recently bought a nearly $19 million apartment in the Greenwich Lane, a condominium project that stretches almost a full city block between 12th and 11th Streets off Seventh Avenue. While Bon Jovi attempted to sell the duplex as a $29.5 million combo unit with a neighboring duplex this summer, the apartment went into contract alone, for $15.995 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Real estate bigwig Michael Fuchs (he co-founded RFR Realty with his childhood friend Aby Rosen) paid $4.35 million for Seth Meyers‘ West Village condo at 302 West 12th Street, according to the Post. The “Late Night” host and his wife Alexi Ashe bought the two-bedroom unit in 2013 for $3.5 million, but after dropping $7.5 million on a five-bedroom Washington Square West co-op in summer 2016, they listed their smaller pad this past September for $4.5 million. And Fuchs must’ve really seen something in the apartment, because he went into contract on it just a month later.

223 West 10th Street is a historic five-story, 20-unit brick building that went condo back in 2005. We’ve featured units here before, like this one asking $999,000 last summer. The latest unit to hit the market is #3A, a chic one bedroom asking a hair over $1 million. It’s a sponsor sale, completely renovated, with the high ceilings and exposed brick giving it a lofty vibe.

The location isn’t bad either
