This townhouse at 42 Jane Street is the best of both West Village worlds. From the street, it’s classic Greek Revival (it was built in 1846), but inside it’s been transformed into a contemporary oasis, with amenities such as a roof terrace with an outdoor fireplace, a basement-level media room, and a luxurious full-floor master suite. Plus, it’s directly adjacent to the lovely Jane Street Garden, of which it has perfect views.

As the Post first reported, Rachel Maddow has put her West Village apartment on the market for $2,349,000. The MSNBC political commentator and her partner Susan Mikula bought the two-bedroom co-op for $1,250,000 in 2010 from REM frontman Michael Stipe. The home is located on a cobblestone street at 130 Jane Street, a former paper warehouse that still retains its original wooden beams.

We just can’t help smiling when looking at this lovely three-bedroom co-op at 92 Horatio Street in the West Village. The duplex unit is full of rustic details–exposed brick, beamed ceilings, tin ceilings–from when the building was built in 1920, but it also is full of colorful, retro decor that keeps the place feeling fresh. It’s currently asking $1,750,000.

This cool West Village home is not your average studio apartment. For one, the interior has been designed as what the listing describes as a “zen suite,” complete with carved wooden doors from Bali, grasscloth and leather walls, and a flat-screen TV that ascends from the foot of the bed. Secondly, the bedroom alcove has been transformed into a custom dressing room/closet fit for a fashionista. Located at 400 West 12th Street, the famous Superior Ink condo, the 943-square-foot home is asking $2.3 million.

The graceful arches, dark floors mixed with painted ceilings, and natural light from three exposures make this West Village co-op feel like a “Hollywood bungalow,” as the listing says. Listed for $1,320,000, the one-bedroom home is located at 75 Bank Street. The Art Deco building is known as Abingdon Court and is right across from both Bleecker Playground and Abingdon Square Park.

Update: A representative from A.J. Willner tells 6sqft that the auction has been cancelled due to the landlord objecting to the restaurant’s right to sell the equipment.

The lastest iconic eatery to shutter in the wake of the COVID pandemic is Chumley’s. Opened in 1922, the West Village bar and restaurant was a speakeasy during Prohibition, becoming famous as a literary haunt for the likes of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and J.D. Salinger. It faced an uncertain future in 2007 when a collapsed wall forced it to close; 10 years of red tape followed, but Chumley’s reopened in 2016, albeit with a new owner and fancier menu. However, Untapped New York first heard the news that Chumley’s will not reopen following the city’s shutdown orders, and they are auctioning off everything from their restaurant equipment to the tufted leather banquettes to the iconic literary memorabilia.

If you’ve always dreamed of living in the West Village, this junior one-bedroom at 92 Horatio Street might be the place to start. Not only is the location spot on, but the $950,000 co-op was gut-renovated four years ago, resulting in a super stylish and unique home. The icing on the cake, though, is the private rooftop oasis that has views of the Empire State Building and Hudson River.

The West Village‘s Printing House condo at 421 Hudson Street has been a sought-after loft building for more than three decades, thanks to its location near both Hudson River Park and Soho and its open homes with high ceilings and massive windows. Even more coveted, though, are the homes along the Printing House’s mews, a 200-foot gated and landscaped lane stretching from Leroy to Clarkson Streets that was designed by Gunn Landscape Architecture. Now on the market for $3,495,000 is a two-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot duplex on the mews that has a super sleek design and convenient layout.
