One of a lovely row of classic buildings at the crossroads of the Village and Soho, 196 Sixth Avenue, built in 1893, is a former police precinct with gorgeous tall arched windows overlooking newly-renovated Father Fagan Park. This loft-style one-bedroom duplex co-op, asking $1.1 million, comprises part of the building’s main floor–which explains the soaring 14-foot ceilings–and the ground floor below.

Diane Keaton’s very first NYC apartment was this full-floor co-op in one of the San Remo‘s iconic towers. She bought the Upper West Side pad in the late ’70s after gaining fame in Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall.” At the time, Mary Tyler Moore was living in the other tower, and rumor has it that Warren Beatty found this quite convenient since he was dating both actresses at the same time. In more recent years, the apartment was home to the late Gordon McLeod, the former head of digital publications at Dow Jones. He first listed the residence in March 2018 for $17.5 million, but after he passed away last month, the unit has returned to the market for a discounted $14.5 million.

In 1978, a ragtag band of artist residents of Soho‘s 45 Crosby Street won what the New York Times called “an impressive victory.” The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development had granted the former industrial building’s title to its residents in exchange for merely the “sweat equity” of getting it up to code (estimated cost: $164,000), making it the city’s first loft building exclusively set aside for low-income artists. Now, a 2,100-square-foot loft co-op in the building, which has been home to artists ever since, is asking $3 million.
