18 East 12th Street: Review and Ratings

between Fifth Avenue & University Place View Full Building Profile

Review of 18 East 12th Street by Carter Horsley

A February 24, 1985 article in The New York Times noted that the commercial buildings at 16 and 20 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village were being converted into a single 38-unit residential condominium by Secured Properties Inc. and 16-20 Realty Associates.  Among the principals, the article continued, was Jonathan L. Paskow.

Vito J. Tricarico was the architect for the project, which added a floor to each building: one has 9 stories and the other 12, “to accommodate duplex units on the top floors.”

Its address is 18 West 12th Street. 

The same block has the 2-story Cinema Village building, a 9-story building with a glass façade of the New York University School of Professional Studies, the Gotham Restaurant, and a 23-story apartment building on University Place that replaced a bowling alley.

This building, which has about 3,000 square feet of retail space, is two blocks away from Union Square.

Bottom Line

This address consists of an attractive, 9-story and a 12-story building that were combined in 1985 to create a 38-unit residential project close to the Cinema Village and down the street from the site of a former bowling alley converted into a 23-story residential building on University Place.


An eclectic block off Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village with an assortment of architectural style.


The project has a 24-hour doorman, a live-in superintendent and a roof deck.


Each apartment will be unique in layout and many have terraces, skylights and interior balconies and at least one walk-in closet.

Penthouse 12 is a three-bedroom triplex with a long entry foyer on the middle floor that leads to a 28-foot-long living room, a 14-foot-wide, windowed kitchen and a 17-foot-long dining room and one of the bedrooms.  The other bedrooms are on the lower and upper levels, the latter also have a terrace.

Apartment 5B is a two-bedroom with a large foyer that opens onto a large living/dining room with an enclosed kitchen with a breakfast bar.

Apartment 2D is a two-bedroom unit with a long entry foyer that leads to a 33-foot-long living/dining room and an open kitchen with a breakfast bar.

Apartment 6A is a one-bedroom unit with a long entry foyer that leads past an open, 15-foot-long kitchen with a breakfast bar to a 20-foot-wide living/dining room.

Apartment 4D is a one-bedroom unit with a long entry foyer that leads to a 19-foot-long dining room next to a 14-foot-wide kitchen with a breakfast bar and a 17-foot-wide living room.
