Greenwich Village Apartment

This apartment on 12th Street in the Greenwich Village has a little private garden and foot path to the front door, which are extremely rare in New York City. Most apartments have the main door located right on the street.

So what is special about your home?

Ming, how absolutely gorgeous and as you say, how unusual. I'd think it would cost a pretty penny (or cent) to live here.

What's so special about my home, you ask... how about mud from the garden, brought in by 10 dogs!

The facade of a more human building in New York for sure!

Great capture!

That has got to be one of the more expensive gardens, in terms of cost per square meter... And why not? Looks great.

Special about my home? Ah, you wouldn't want to know... ;)

what's special about my house?? i have some fabulous old early 1900s diamond-paned windows, so charming...falling apart, but eh, so what, they lend such character!

It reminds me of ones you see in London, secluded and pricey. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

That is one cool place to live.
I wonder how many body parts it would take to get in the building?


What's so special about my place?
Nothing in particular and everything all at once. How's that for vague?

That is beautiful.

Nothing too special about my home...a typical Manhattan studio.

I know this place too—and have coveted it for years.
What's special about my place? It's a fairly typical prewar apartment, but it does have some nice archways and a couple of curved walls in the kitchen.

That's rare? Wow, that's so strange for a 'redneck' like me to hear, it's rare for someone in my area to have a driveway less than 1km long!!!
