Stunning and gorgeous 800 sq. ft interior 12 foot ceilings with 100sq ft terrace rarely seen in this newly remodeled, pre-war 1-bedroom apartment. Situated at the crossroads of Downtown Manhattan’s most exciting neighborhoods, including the West Village, Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, and Union Square, 14th Street is in the midst of a renaissance, particularly between Hudson River Park and Union Square. The dramatic transformation is turning the thoroughfare into a destination unto itself. The street now has a different kind of bustle, one inclusive of high-end retail, fine dining, and culture. Also, several of Downtown’s finest residential condominiums now line and surround 14th Street.
Tourists and New Yorkers alike flock to the beautifully landscaped High Line, as well as the Hudson River Park, Chelsea Piers, Chelsea Market and the new Renzo Piano-designed Whitney Museum, among many other attractions. In addition, the community has seen an increase in popularity of shopping, dining and cultural attractions. Tech giant Google is headquartered at Eighth Avenue and 15th Street, and numerous other businesses have moved to the area, especially in the fields of fashion and creative.
The well-known Chelsea Market and Gansevoort Market are a major draw to the area, as well as some 200 art galleries, located mainly in West Chelsea, including Milk Studios, Gagosian, Mary Boone, and Marlborough. Shopping includes brands such as Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, Helmut Lang, and Christian Louboutin. Jeffrey is among the most popular boutiques in the entire city and Barney’s opened a brand new 58,000 sqft store in its former Chelsea space at Seventh Avenue and 16th Street. The area is also home to many independent, locally-owned shops and boutiques that make the area a must-visit for high-end shopping.
The area, especially the Meatpacking District and Union Square, has long been seen as a nightlife and dining hotspot. The Boom Boom Room, located on the rooftop of The Standard Hotel, is one of the city’s most exclusive nighttime spots. And the Standard Grill, situated under the High Line, is a neighborhood staple. Fine dining along the 14th Street corridor also includes Scarpetta, a high-end and trendy Italian restaurant, Crispo, one of Chelsea’s best-kept secrets that offers authentic Italian cuisine, and Coppelia, an extremely popular Cuban restaurant that is a neighborhood favorite.
The area is also home to some prominent, members-only clubs. The Norwood, located on 14th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenue,is an extremely selective members-only arts and culture club set in a charming brownstone. The Soho House in the Meatpacking District is a hotel and members-only club for people in the creative and finance industries, replete with a rooftop pool.
