An apartment right next door to gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon is now on the market for $2.22 million. The available co-op at 10 Bleecker Street, located off the Bowery in Noho, sits on the third floor, the same level where the “Sex and the City” star lives with her wife, Christine Marinoni. According to the New York Post, Nixon first purchased her apartment for $3.25 million in 2012. She also owns a small co-op nearby in the East Village, but when she purchased it for $1.5 million in 2016, it was speculated to be an investment property.
The multidisciplinary architecture/design firm Dash Marshall does it again. Before they evoked water with their “Raft Loft” in Tribeca, and now they turn to the soil with the “Wormhole” in Noho, which takes inspiration from dark tunnels underground that emerge into the bright sun. Inspired by science fiction, like “2001: Space Odyssey,” and clients who were amenable to the stories they create, Ritchie Yao, one of the firms’ co-founders explained, “We built a Wormhole above Bond Street by invading a historic structure with futuristic bits to create a world within a world: new inside of old, dark inside of bright, minimal inside of maximal.”
Greenwich Village is well known as the home to libertines in the 1920s and feminists in the 1960s and ’70s. But going back to at least the 19th century, the neighborhoods now known as Greenwich Village, the East Village, and Noho were home to pioneering women who defied convention and changed the course of history, from the first female candidate for President, to America’s first woman doctor, to the “mother of birth control.” This Women’s History Month, here are just a few of those trailblazing women, and the sites associated with them.
The listing for this 3,000-square-foot home at 710 Broadway in Noho invokes Shakespeare, but we think the triplex, asking $2.695 million, has loftier ambitions. The three-story space is ideal for “an artist, photographer, bibliophile, therapist, or just somebody who likes to entertain,” or even someone who doesn’t: It’s built for privacy, with sleeping areas tucked away on the top and bottom floors and public areas in between (h/t Curbed). A glass-topped solarium awaits off the bookshelf-lined living room, and a lower level opens onto an enclosed patio for solitary or social pursuits.
Kristen Stewart just purchased a potential-filled Noho artists’ loft at 1 Bond Street, the New York Observer reports. The “Twilight Saga” actress and model snagged a 3,000-square-foot fixer-upper in the historic Robbins & Appleton building that boasts three exposures, Corinthian columns, a “highly customizable floor plan” and endless possibilities–for $5.64 million.

After 34 years of serving giant Cajun-Creole portions alongside obscure jukebox music, Great Jones Cafe is closing its doors for good tonight. The notorious Noho bar at 54 Great Jones Street opened in 1983 when the block was so empty patrons used be able to play whiffle ball in the street, but its closure serves as a reminder of the history of Great Jones Street. This superlative name dates way back to 1789 when politician Samuel Jones donated land to the city under the terms that they name any street within the property after him. But there was one little issue….
On the seventh floor of a Noho loft building at 46 Great Jones Street overlooking the fashionable neighborhood’s cobblestone streets, this 2,000 square-foot loft-lover’s dream of a co-op contains plenty of loft details and just enough dazzle to appeal to buyers of a $3.5 million properties in 21st-century Manhattan. Celebrity cachet is included: 6sqft just reported that Sheryl Crow’s super-cool loft in the same building just sold for $2.72 million.
This bright and airy co-op at 308 Mott Street in Noho may not have a 35-foot-long terrace, but it is, as the listing says, both charming and efficient, with plenty of storage and enough room for a guest or two. The lovely tree-lined blocks that surround the building are home to elegant buildings both historic and new, and quaint shops, theaters and restaurants just far enough from the bustle of Soho. It’s an expensive enclave, home to celebrities galore, so the $550K ask makes this charming apartment seem like quite a find.
This light-filled loft at 718 Broadway on a bustling stretch of Noho has 1,300 square feet of space to live in—and a New Yorker’s dream of storage space to stash your stuff. Just listed for $2.2 million, the massive downtown apartment is the perfect refuge from the city. And, can you really go wrong with eight-foot windows and twelve-foot ceilings?
