One of Manhattan’s best qualities is its unique and varied neighborhoods. ‘Life in’ provides a taste of New York City’s distinct sub-cultures to help you find the perfect place to call home.
New York, the city that never sleeps. This sentiment couldn’t be more true in 10012. Anchored by Greenwich Village to the north and SoHo to the south, 10012 has been known for its vibrant heartbeat since Edith Wharton’s Gilded Age.

With an array of restaurants and bars, this part of town is lively until the late hours of the night. And when morning comes you’re sure to find a line at java hotspots City Bakery or Gimme! Coffee – and it’s worth the wait. But for those that need a bit more sustenance to survive the hustle and bustle on the morning subway commute, Chobani transforms greek yogurt into a culinary experience. Who knew healthy could actually taste this good?
For those that don’t work the typical 9 to 5, 10012 boasts shops and art galleries galore. Window shop yourself into a tizzy along Bleecker Street and then pop into a West Broadway or Spring Street gallery. Break for lunch at Jack’s Wife Freda or Rubirosa. New York is known for it’s pizza for a reason.
After a morning of culture and couture, take advantage of the endless fitness opportunities. Soul Cycle, ModelFIT and The Bar Method definitely keep locals looking beach-ready all year long. If fresh air and a vitamin D boost is what you’re after, Washington Square Park is just a few blocks away beckoning for leisurely strolls or a good read on a bench.
Whether it’s ending a day of work or play, residents of 10012 love Blue Ribbon Brasserie and BONDST, followed by cocktails and people watching at The Crosby Bar in the Crosby Hotel.
Sometimes life is good. And then there’s life in 10012, which is really good.
