Part of the West Village’s charm comes from row upon row of 19th-century townhomes. But every so often, a modern take on that style can be spotted. Here’s a look at a few noteworthy examples via Ephemeral New York.
This former brownstone on Greenwich Street, east of Gansevoort Street, now features a facade made of glass and steel.
And just around the corner on Horatio and Greenwich streets, this three-story residence deconstructs the motifs of a more traditional home.
Finally, this modernized home on West 13th Street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, was once a three-story walk-up. Now, it’s 21st century trendy with a blow-dry bar on the ground floor. [Ephemeral NY] – Christopher Cameron
