The charm of Greenwich Village is undeniable. You have tree-lined streets, shops and celebrities. Well this $3.995 million full-floor pad at 54 East 11th Street is not to be outdone. We’ll put it this way, If this loft were the setting of an episode of “Sex and the City” it would be called “An American Girl in Paris Without Actually Leaving New York.”
Here’s a $995,000 unique two-bedroom pad on coveted 7th Avenue, right near Prospect Park. It’s a second-floor unit in a limestone 1880s Gothic revival townhouse, and it features original details like crown and ceiling moldings, 12-foot ceilings with medallions, hardwoods with walnut inlay, a marble mantel, and those windows. Not to mention, there’s a peaceful private terrace overlooking a garden.
Here’s your chance to nab an apartment in the famous Ansonia for $12 million. The 4,500-square-foot pad is the place to entertain all your friends, boasting the tallest ceilings in the entire building, and stunning Upper West Side views from east, south, and west exposures. The space is actually a combination of three units that used to form their own wing of the building, representing the largest original layout ever designed by the building’s architect, Duboy of Graves and Duboy. Its current owner, Michel Madie, spent nine years collecting all of the units to bring the space back to its former glory.
It’s good to have options. Take this former “Guiding Light” actress‘s 4,000 square-foot early Greek revival townhouse on James Phelan Row, for instance. It can either be delivered to you as three separate apartments with a potential rental income of $20,000 per month, or you can convert it into one giant dream home. Either way you’ve got three large outdoor spaces waiting for you during the warmer months, and eight wood-burning fireplaces ready to warm you during New York’s fierce winters. And all these options can be right at your feet for $9.5 million.
When you’re lucky enough to come across a gorgeous older home that has been lovingly restored like this eight-bedroom home at 126 Hancock Street, you grab your broker and run like the wind to claim it. And you just might do so after you’ve had a look at this brownstone. This stunning home was originally built in 1883 by architect Isaac D. Reynolds and has been carefully restored to its original glory by a team of interior designers from Pure Interior Design of New York. After this group was finished shining this baby up like a brand-new penny, we were left with a stunning home with all the modern updates, asking $3.195 million.
Original details like decorative fireplaces, wood moldings and pocket doors await you at this $1.85 million Bed-Stuy residence at 349 Hancock Street.

Let’s be honest. When you think of New York living, the name Soho comes up a lot. And when you think of Soho, you think of the perfect loft. Well, this $13,500-a-month rental may just check all the boxes on your wish list. We’re talking 4,200 square feet of open space with the coveted sky-high ceilings, whitewashed exposed brick, hardwood floors, and oversized windows. Plus, a perfectly situated mezzanine maximizes the space and houses one of the home’s two bedroom suites. Let’s take a look.
This palatial Beekman Place mansion, designed by Eldridge Snyder, has served as a domicile to the head of CBS and to the shah of Iran’s twin sister. The majestic home stands eight levels tall, with eight to ten bedrooms covering 10,500 square feet. Unfortunately, the home has had a visit from the price chopper, falling from an initial asking of $49.9 million in February 2014 to a current asking of a much lower $37.5 million.
You’ll never run out of inspiration when surrounded by this light-filled loft’s high ceilings, cast-iron columns, exposed brick, and brick masonry, among other original details. In fact, the triplex maisonette has been the subject of countless significant photography and video shoots over the last 15 years, as it was home to prolific photographer Jacob Getz, who snapped pictures of the likes of Lauren Bacall and Madonna, according to the Post.
