The New York Times
Doron Zwickel discusses 93 Worth in this Tribeca new development piece. With only nine units remaining, the 18-story development has experienced high demand from potential buyers. “This is a brand-new Broadway corridor,” said Doron. “Historically, this hasn’t been prime TriBeCa, but it is becoming more desirable.”

Luxe Developments Blur Neighborhood Boundaries
Tom Postilio comments on the new development market in evolving Manhattan neighborhoods. CORE is handling sales at new development One Museum Mile, located at 1280 Fifth Avenue. “There was a time when people didn’t venture beyond 86th Street, then 96th Street,” says Tom. “It keeps evolving.”
On Friday, June 25th, Downtown Magazine held a photo shoot for their upcoming fall issue at 23 Downing Street in Greenwich Village. The high-fashion shoot – brought to life by photographer Haley Ballard, Fashion and Beauty Editor Whitney Michel, hairstylist Ezel Mustafa, makeup artist Natalie Miller and models AJ and Esther Havenaar – perfectly captured the elegance and glamour of the downtown townhouse property. Previously the site of evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, the shoot highlights the private home’s versatility.
The center of attention, 23 Downing Street is a unique, 3,700-square-foot, single-family residence that boasts five-floors and 900 exterior square feet, including a private garden and rooftop terrace. Originally built in the early 19th century, this re-mastered home personified old world charm, while also offering modern amenities, professional-grade appliances and state-of-the-art technology.

Spanning 5 floors and 3,700-square-feet, the private home is as unique as it is beautiful, particularly due to the 900 exterior square feet, complete with a private garden and rooftop terrace. Originally built in the early 19th century, the home personifies old world charm, while also offering modern amenities and state-of-the-art technology.

Dream Homes: 15 Union Square West, 5DE
The New York Post
Vickey Barron, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ralph Modica’s listing at 15 Union Square West continues to gain exposure, as it is featured in the latest installment of “Dream Homes.”
This home brings together all of the elements of an ideal starter apartment- prime location, great layout and classic details with modern finishes. Originally designed by Wheeler Smith in 1888 and turned into a co-op in 1986, this building sits on Mercer Street between 3rd and 4th Streets in the desirable NoHo neighborhood. Take in the city views through the oversized casement windows. Additionally the home features a beautiful open kitchen and sunken living room allowing for comfortable and sleek day-to-day living.
Now one of the most desirable neighborhoods in New York City, in the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, the Village was once a well-known artists’ haven, bohemian capital and the East Coast birthplace of the Beat movement. Our new 1-bedroom on Bleecker truly captures the sensibilities that made this neighborhood such a cultural and artistic melting pot: the 11-foot ceilings, large windows and original columns tell a story of the building’s history while details like the purple kitchen cabinetry, unique mosaic tile back splash and colorful accent walls add an artistic aesthetic to this truly one-of-a-kind home.
Labor Day weekend is just around the corner and summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean we’re tired of great private outdoor spaces quite yet. Here are three great properties on the market that can give summer the sendoff it deserves.
On the inside this historic Greenwich Village brownstone is totally restored and renovated for contemporary living, but the outdoor spaces stand out as well. There are two private terraces, but we really want to focus on the backyard, which is a charming space in one of Manhattan’s best neighborhoods that can handle the busiest holiday celebration. And if you need a moment alone, you can sneak off to that private terrace off the master bedroom.
After undergoing a complete renovation, this Greenwich Village townhouse — built in 1848 — has become one of the best single-family homes in all of downtown. Understated and elegant are words to describe this home, but it has also been refreshed for a modern lifestyle. In keeping with what luxury buyers are after these days, the house — comprised of four stories and a finished basement — includes 4 spacious bedroom suites, 3 with fireplaces. The building has undergone structural, mechanical and technological upgrades, and even the beautiful backyard has been redone. The interiors are truly stunning, and we recommend browsing the full photo gallery on Vickey Barron’s listing. Below, a peek at the new kitchen, looking out into the private garden.
The less heralded New York City views — the ones without an Empire State Building or Chrysler Building lighting up the night sky — sneak up on you over time and make you really fall in love with the Big Apple. Standing tall above the rooftops of Greenwich Village, this high-floor apartment at classic 11 Fifth Avenue has some of the most expansive views of the historic neighborhood. If being a few steps away from Washington Square Park isn’t enough, we think that the views of the neighborhood’s eclectic architecture — pre-war, mid-century and modern — are a beautiful sight. Guess being 20 floors up has its advantages.
With all of the focus lately on small but smartly designed living spaces in Manhattan, we thought we’d share a new CORE listing that is a good example for others in the genre to follow. Though big for a studio apartment, this co-op unit in the desirable Mark Twain building in Greenwich Village has some great key features that can be re-created in smaller studios, including a designer Murphy bed to open up floor space, a fully-equipped (and windowed) kitchen, a dressing area and a built-in surround sound system. But there are also qualities about this home that can’t just be packed up and shipped off other studios, like the prime Village location and the calming garden view. Overall, a charming and cool space.
