The site of a monumental event in the LGBTQ community’s fight against anti-gay discrimination was honored last week with a historic plaque. The Village Preservation and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project on Thursday unveiled the plaque at Julius’ Bar at 159 West 10th Street. The bar was the site of the first “Sip-In,” an act of defiance in which members of gay rights groups entered the bar and asked to be served drinks while announcing they were homosexuals, going against the discriminatory regulations of the New York State Liquor Authority which at the time prohibited bars from serving gay or lesbian patrons.

This 4,535-square-foot pre-war corner condo at 65 West 13th Street in Greenwich Village has the stylish contemporary lines of a gallery and the 12-foot ceilings of a loft, with sweeping city views. A renovation designed by Workshop/APD created a perfect canvas for an art collection–and a sprawling refuge for family living. Thanks to four bedrooms in separate wings, a playroom, den, and laundry room, living in the city doesn’t have to mean giving up space–though it does mean parting with $15,300,000.

On the market for the first time in 22 years, the pair of townhouses at 183 and 185 West 4th Street in Greenwich Village has as much historic cachet as its many charming neighbors. Built in 1897, the property was home to industrialist and art collector Armand Hammer in the 1920s. Today it retains more of its original beauty than most. A painstaking renovation by the renowned architectural firm of Fairfax & Sammons has not only combined and updated the homes for modern living, but given well-deserved attention to every inch of the diminutive jewel-box townhouses–complete with magical patio and garden. The property is asking $7,500,000.
