Publisher Barney Rossett started Grove Press in the 1960s for only $3,000 and turned it into a major publishing house notable for introducing American readers to authors like Henry Miller, Eugene Ionesco, Tom Stoppard, and Jean Genet. At the time, he was living in a 25-foot wide townhouse at 196 West Houston Street in the West Village, where he entertained creative luminaries like Norman Mailer and John Lennon. In 1989, the townhouse sold to another literary man, publisher Peter Mayer, who brought Salman Rushdie’s controversial “The Satanic Verses” to print. Today, the townhouse is just as inspiring and fresh on the market seeking $17.95 million, or $49,000 a month as a rental.

Originally built in 1855, this landmarked Federal-era home at 35 Perry Street in the heart of the West Village was last sold in 2015 for $6 million. Soon after, the current owner realized the building was in rather unstable condition and embarked on an ambitious gut renovation. Reclaimed wood from the original structure was used for the extensive detailing and steel framing was added and left exposed, contributing to the home’s industrial-chic vibes. Now divided into several units, the garden duplex is available for a long-term lease at $15,000 a month.

In all of Taylor Swift’s $84 million real estate portfolio–including almost $50 million worth of property in downtown NYC–only the pop megastar’s former rental at 23 Cornelia Street gets a mention on “Lover,” the just-released album enjoying a typically frenzied response from her vast and loyal fan base. In fact, the Greenwich Village address gets its own track: “Cornelia Street” references tender memories of the carriage house Swift was renting for $39,500 a month from Soho House executive David Aldea in 2016 while renovations were underway at an $18 million Tribeca townhouse she’d bought. In the song, she tells a new squeeze “I rent a place on Cornelia Street.”

6sqft previously featured this unique West Village studio for its clever design in 2014, when its owners, Jourdan Lawlor and Tobin Ludwig, who bought the charming co-op for a mere $270,000, transformed the 242-square-foot pied-a-terre at 352 West 12th Street into a marvel of brilliant design and space-optimizing solutions. The pair dubbed it “The Wee Cottage” and invested in a renovation that became the stuff of micro-apartment legend (Refinery29 named it the Coolest Tiny Apartment in NYC, and it’s an Instagram favorite). After a spin as a rental, they put their mini-masterpiece on the market last year for $500,000. Now its price has gotten a wee bit smaller, currently asking $429,000 (h/t Curbed).

This ultra-contemporary single-family townhouse a 829 Greenwich Street is immediately recognizable from the outside: Its entire facade is comprised of a single piece of 40-foot-high steel. The four-story house lives up to its public face, courtesy of celebrated architect Matthew Baird, offering a private parking garage, a landscaped roof deck, a rear facade of floor-to-ceiling glass and a basement wine cellar. The highly sought-after Manhattan neighborhood on the border of the West Village and Meatpacking District doesn’t hurt–and is likely a big part of the reason this unique home is asking $19.750 million.
