Review of 200 Mercer Street by Carter Horsley

This handsome, four-story, mid-block building at 200 Mercer Street between Bleecker and West Houston streets in Greenwich Village was erected in 1854 for Peter Goelet, who with his brother Robert, according to, organized the Chemical Bank in 1844. 

Originally, it was a stable building and had been designed by John G. Prague. 

The building was converted circa 1985 to a 28-unit co-operative by connecting it to the five-story buildings at 631, 633 and 635 Broadway centered on a courtyard. 

The building faces the three towers designed by I. M. Pei of University Village. 

It is not far from Washington Square Park and convenient public transportation.

Bottom Line

An attractive former 4-story, red-brick stable building in Greenwich Village converted in the mid-1980s to 28 co-operative apartments by joining it with three, nearby Broadway buildings.


The building has a small canopy at the entrance to its gated courtyard. 

It has carved stone sills and lintels and a roof parapet covered with aluminum panels


The building has a live-in superintendent and a video intercom system and permits pets and washers and dryers.


The building's duplex penthouse has two bedroom, a wood-burning fireplace, central air-conditioning and a private roof deck.  Its 29-foot-long living room has a rolling ladder to access a book shelf near the ceiling and the home has a walnut-lined, 12-foot-wide kitchen with a breakfast bar and a 36-inch Wolf range with a copper hood.  A glassed-in area at one end of the living room has a dramatic plank staircase to a 19-foot-wide master suite area and a 29-foot-wide ipe wood roof deck.  The entry foyer is 16-feet long. 

Apartment 4E is a two-bedroom unit with a 20-foot-long entry foyer that leads past a 12-foot-wide den and a 13-foot-wide library to a 28-foot-long dining room across from a 16-foot-wide open kitchen with an island and next to a 23-foot-long living room.
