With 4,100 square feet of living space and five bedrooms, this nine-room co-op at 6 West 20th Street in Manhattan’s Flatiron district could easily be a custom-built family home in the suburbs, if it weren’t in the middle of a vibrant Manhattan neighborhood.

Now on the market for $2,500,000, this East Village loft at 431 East 6th Street is one of three in a building with a history that’s in keeping with its colorful downtown neighborhood. Available for the first time in 40 years, the apartment, belonging to model and interior designer Maria Von Hartz, represents the latest incarnation of what was once an abandoned synagogue. The building, which is a tenancy-in-common property, was purchased in the 1980s by a group of artists who transformed the abandoned house of worship into beautiful loft homes. Among these artist-owners was celebrated photographer William Wegman of whimsical Weimaraner fame.

This four-story townhouse at 334 West 20th Street, asking $25,000,000 set a neighborhood record when it changed hands in 2021 for $22,500,000, according to the Wall Street Journal. Chelsea’s priciest townhouse is on track to outdo its previous record if it fetches its current ask. From the cellar gym to the elevator to the sprawling rooftop terrace, AD100 firm Gachot made use of every inch of usable space in a redesign that turned the home into a modern Manhattan mansion while preserving its historic elegance.

Brooklyn Heights, Cool Listings

Though this three-bedroom co-op at 167 Clinton Street in the heart of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District might be a standard railroad flat, it’s definitely in the first-class section: The one inconvenience of the room-after-room layout–having to walk through every room to get to the others–has already been remedied with a closet-lined hallway in the bedroom wing. Situated on the suitably grand parlor floor of a mid-1800s townhouse, there’s plenty of space in this charming residence, asking $1,995,000, that spans the length of the main townhouse plus its rear carriage house.
