How was this building rated?

This attractive and large complex of 12- to 16-story buildings at 250 Mercer Street in Greenwich Village dating back to 1890 was converted from commercial use to 277 cooperative apartments in 1980 by Raynes & Leichter. 

The architect for the conversion of nine buildings here, which includes a wide diversity of apartment layouts - some quite dramatic - was Henry G. Greene. 

The property includes a large, landscaped courtyard with attractive murals of street scenes painted by Evergreene Painting Studios of New York. 

It is also known as 2-14 West 4th Street, 1-9 West 3rd street and 683-697 Broadway.
