I’m always on the apartment hunt, passively browsing listings as a way to stay up-to-date on the market. Over the years, I’ve collected a list of my favorite buildings--some of which I’ve personally inhabited, others I’ve merely browsed online or on foot, and others that have come to my attention through the praise of friends.
I use this list to guide my own searches and share it with friends who are on the move as well.
One of my favorite rentals is 10 Downing, a 127-unit prewar doorman building in the West Village.
Check out the below reasons why 10 Downing more than makes the grade:
It’s safe to say any New Yorker would be hard-pressed to find a better location than 10 Downing. Sitting on the border of Soho and the West Village, this building lies within two of the most popular and desirable neighborhoods in the city. It’s super close to numerous bus and subway lines, and some of the best restaurants, bars, stores, and coffee shops downtown Manhattan has to offer.
