A gut renovation transformed this West Village studio into an efficient space with custom built-ins throughout and a breezy palette of bright white, exposed brick, and maple hardwood. Located at 118 Perry Street, a largely residential street famous for housing Carrie Bradshaw’s home, you’ll be right in the heart of the West Village and steps away from everything the neighborhood has to offer. The petite pad is a smart investment—it last sold in 2015 for $375,000, and just hit the market for $499,000.

A mansion on an affluent block in the West Village hit the market this week for $28.6 million. Located at 271 West 11th Street, the property sits next to “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Matthew Broderick’s two townhouses, which are currently being combined into a megamansion. Other A-list New Yorkers on the block, which stretches between West 4th and Bleecker, include Chipotle founder Steve Ells, Liv Tyler, and Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, Curbed NY noted.

Nearly 50 years ago, the old Bell Telephone Laboratories building at 55 Bethune Street in the Far West Village was converted to affordable live/work housing for artists, courtesy of a young, then-unknown architect named Richard Meier. Because of the building’s prime Hudson River-front location, storied creative past, and collection of 384 units–most of which feature open, loft layouts and high ceilings perfect for a working artist–Westbeth Artists Housing has become one of the most coveted addresses in NYC. For the first time since 2007, the community has reopened its waitlist for working artists and their families. The annual income range starts at $69,445 for one person to $114,950 for a six-person household, and the units go from $900/month studios to $2,400/month three-bedrooms.

The carriage house at 23 Cornelia Street in the West Village that Taylor Swift called home while her sprawling Franklin Street property was being renovated has sold for $11.5 million after several years on the market and a price chop of half its original ask of $24.5M, the New York Post reports. The pop star’s hefty $39,500 monthly rent sounds a little more understandable when you’ve seen the private pool, garage and rooftop terrace with city views.

A Village preservation group on Monday called on the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate the interior of White Horse Tavern a landmark. In a letter to LPC Chair Sarah Carroll, the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP) wrote that “the potential loss of the interior of this tavern from a recent change in ownership would be a devastating loss, not only to New York City, but to the country and the world.” The request comes less than a week after the 140-year-old West Village bar was sold to notorious landlord Steve Croman, who once served jail time for tenant harassment.

A beloved 140-year-old West Village bar known for its famous poet and artist clientele has been sold. The new owner of White Horse Tavern, which opened on Hudson Street in 1880, is Steve Croman, a notorious landlord who served prison time for tenant harassment, as Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York first reported. And on top of that unsavory news, the historic bar will be run by restauranteur Eytan Sugarman, who recently made headlines for his copycat pepperoni slice at Made In New York that looks identical to that of Prince Street Pizza. But Sugarman told Eater NY he’s taking the bar’s historic details into account. “We are only focused on preserving the rich history and legacy of this iconic institution for New Yorkers,” he said.

In the heart of the West Village at 53 Horatio Street, this three-bedroom home has just listed for $3.25 million. The 1834 Federal rowhouse was divided into six co-ops, but the units still retain their 19th-century charm. This residence spans an impressive four floors, hence why the listing describes it as a “house within a house.” In addition to its spacious, vertical layout, the apartment is the perfect mix of country decor and contemporary amenities.
