In the converted brick West Village loft building formerly home to the Pickwick Paper Company, and now to 22 condos, this apartment at 35 Bethune Street offers an amenity-rich triplex with original details. The modern three-bedroom apartment is defined by a 24-foot, tiered glass atrium in its center and has more than 2,100 square feet of space. It’s currently asking $3.4 million.

It’s hard to find a penthouse in downtown Manhattan that isn’t impressive in one way or another, but this 1,600-square-foot space high above Christopher Street in the West Village has bragging rights to that rare and elusive refuge that few can claim: There’s a private pool on its rooftop terrace. TBD Architecture + Design Studio was responsible for a total renovation of the stunning duplex (h/t Dezeen), resulting in a new multi-level rooftop deck with a hot tub, outdoor shower, bar area, and the aforementioned pool.
This sweet little one-bedroom co-op at 82 Horatio Street in just about the most perfect part of the historic West Village has plenty of pre-war charm, a wood-burning fireplace, and a sparkling new renovation. It doesn’t have lots of extra living space, and it’s asking $735,000, but there’s plenty of potential: subletting is allowed upon closing–rare for a co-op–and there are no issues with financing, pieds-a-terre, or any other creative ideas involving in-demand downtown Manhattan property.
German-American actress Diane Kruger and her boyfriend Norman Reedus, best known for his role in The Walking Dead, bought an $11.75 million townhouse in the West Village, according to the Wall Street Journal. The couple snagged a four-story Federal-style townhouse built in 1835. Kruger, who is expecting her first child, has also listed her Tribeca home for $4.7 million. She bought the two-bedroom unit last June for $4.2 million.
In the enviable Abingdon Square enclave, above a neighborhood shop and next door to iconic Rebel Coffee, this bright and cozy aerie at 21 8th Avenue is a certain kind of West Village dream. Asking $9,995 a month, the home is comprised of the top two floors in a charming brick townhouse. As the building’s only residential unit, it’s tucked above a quiet village boutique.
Formerly pink West Village townhouse returns for $7.8M with a period-perfect facade and sleek interiors, Tue, July 17, 2018
Built in 1826, the four-story townhouse at 39 Barrow Street resembles many of the neighborhood‘s historic gems with its brick facade and traditional black shutters. You’d never know that sometime between its construction and 2010 when it was purchased for $4.125 million by the son of a pharmacy mogul bent on renovation, the house was a quirky pale pink stucco standout with bright lemon-yellow trim. We don’t know who bestowed the Lilly Pulitzer treatment, but in previous listings it bore a rather charming resemblance to a Palm Beach palazzo. With that era long over, the home’s facade is now the picture of 19th century correctness; inside, however, Reed Morrison Architects have transformed the house into a showcase of contemporary sleekness and modern convenience. The turnkey home is once again on the market, this time for $7.775 million.

After nine months on the market, the late James Gandolfini’s one-time West Village apartment that he shared with ex-wife Marcy Wudarski Gandolfini has found a buyer. In 1999, the couple bought one unit at 99 Jane Street for $850,000, followed by another for $1 million in 2002, combining them into one large, four-bedroom condo. Marcy took ownership the following year after they split, and the residence first hit the market in 2015 as a $21,000/month rental before listing for $7.5 million this past October. Mansion Global now reports that the home has sold for $6.2 million.
On its own, the fact that the landmarked five-story tenement building at 244 West 4th Street was designed in 1884 by John B. Snook, the architect responsible for the original Grand Central Station, wouldn’t likely be enough to entice a buyer. Fortunately, the covetable West Village neighborhood and the thoroughly livable two-floor, one-bedroom layout of this pretty co-op asking $948,000 would be sufficiently convincing even without its historic bragging rights.
6sqft previously featured this unique West Village studio for its clever design back in 2014, when its owners, Jourdan Lawlor and Tobin Ludwig, turned the 242-square-foot pied-a-terre at 352 West 12th Street into a marvel of Swiss Army knife-like usefulness with brilliant design and custom solutions. The pair, who bought the charming co-op for just $270,000, christened it “The Wee Cottage” and invested about $33,000 in a renovation that became the stuff of micro-apartment legend, having been featured in numerous publications and heaped with accolades (Refinery29 named it the Coolest Tiny Apartment in NYC, for example, and it’s an Instagram favorite). They rented it out for $3,000 a month in 2016, and now it’s for sale asking $500,000.
6sqft’s series “Where I Work” takes us into the studios, offices, and off-beat workspaces of New Yorkers across the city. In this installment, we’re touring the oldest pharmacy in the United States, C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries in Greenwich Village, and talking with owner Ian Ginsberg. Want to see your business featured here? Get in touch!
C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries was established in 1838. It is the oldest apothecary in America. It was originally called the Village Apothecary Shop and was opened by the Vermont physician, Galen Hunter. It was renamed C.O. Bigelow Apothecary when it was purchased by an employee, Clarence Otis Bigelow in 1880. The apothecary is in fact so old that it once sold leeches and opium as remedies. According to legend, the chemists at Bigelow even created a salve for Thomas Edison to treat his burned fingers when he was first developing the light bulb.
In 1922, the apothecary was sold to the pharmacist, Mr. Bluestone, employed by Bigelow, thereby continuing the unique legacy of passing ownership from employer to employee. Bluestone sold the pharmacy to yet another pharmacist employee, William B. Ginsberg in 1939. And since 1939, three generations of Ginsberg’s have owned and operated the shop, passing down from father to son to most recently grandson, Ian Ginsberg, who 6sqft spoke with at this historic pharmacy in Greenwich Village at 414 Sixth Avenue.
