The duplex is in a Federal-style townhouse in Greenwich Village's historic district.


Lots of New York City buyers are sitting out this cycle of the sales market and opting to rent instead. For a would-be luxury buyer, a rental like this two bedroom, two bath, 112 Waverly Place, #PH, in Greenwich Village might make sense.

It's asking $15,000 a month with one month free on a 12-month lease—that's a discount considering that it was previously on the market for $17,000 in 2013, according to StreetEasy. The apartment is a duplex, with two wood-burning fireplaces and a private landscaped rooftop terrace. 

The duplex is in a 1900 Federal-style townhouse in Greenwich Village's historic district. There's a common rooftop terrace, garden, and laundry room. Pets are welcome.

The apartment has a lot of original detail like wood beams, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and an atelier skylight. There's a washer/dryer in the unit and central air conditioning. The kitchen, dining room, living room, and bath are on the first floor while both bedrooms and the second bath are on the second floor.

The eat-in kitchen has stainless steel appliances, two windows, and a pantry.

The master bedroom has the second wood-burning fireplace plus a large window. There's no closet in the bedroom, but there's two larger closets just outside in the hall.

The second bedroom has two closets and two windows.


The full bath has a skylight above the tub while the first floor's bath is windowed and has a standing shower.

The rooftop terrace is landscaped and seems very private from looking at the listing's photos.


Washington Square Park is a one-minute walk away. The West 4th St. station is a one-minute walk in the opposite direction, where you can catch the A, C, E, B, D, F, and M trains. Nearby eateries include Blue Hill, Babbo, and North Square.
