Earlier this week, Gansevoort Peninsula opened to the public on the border of the West Village and the Meatpacking District. The most eagerly awaited aspect might have been Manhattan’s first public beach, and other features include a sports field, seating lawn, kayak access, salt marsh with native plantings, and “Day’s End” art installation gifted by the Whitney Museum, which moved from Madison Avenue to Gansevoort Street in 2015.
Gansevoort Peninsula marks the latest transformation for the West Village waterfront, which got facelifts first from Hudson River Park and then from new condos. At the turn of the 21st century, Richard Meier’s minimalist apartment buildings on Perry Street brought a new level of cachet and luxury living to an area where residential offerings were previously limited to converted townhouses, uninspiring postwar coops, and one of New York’s most famous artists’ communities. It was also the start of a new age of design for the West Village; in the wake of a wave of edgy, all-glass new buildings (e.g., 160 Leroy Street and One Jackson Square), design trends shifted to a more modern take on traditional architecture along with the tasteful conversion of prewar industrial buildings themselves.

The West Village isn’t the only downtown waterfront neighborhood that has gotten a makeover in recent years. The area south of the Village, north of Tribeca, and far west of Soho proper spent years as a formerly industrial no-man’s-land before it got rebranded as Hudson Square. Not only have major corporations like Google and Disney chosen the neighborhood for their new headquarters, but a new collection of eye-catching, amenity-rich new condominiums has taken shape. The surrounding area is still relatively low-rise, which means the residents of the new buildings can enjoy relatively unfettered river and city views along with easy access to the city's hottest downtown neighborhoods and an increasingly vibrant local community.
Below, we look at the top 10 condominiums overlooking the Hudson River from Gansevoort Street to Canal Street. This rundown comes on the heels of our lists of Upper West Side and Midtown condos with the best Hudson River views, and Lower Manhattan's best buildings will follow!

The 125-year-old building at 150 Barrow Street appears to encapsulate the history of the West Village in one site: It was constructed as a hotel catering to seamen and travelers on the cruise ships that docked in the area, converted to an SRO in the 1980s, and transformed into a luxury condominium in the 2020s. The exterior is a New York City Landmark, but the interiors have been transformed into spacious apartments with oversized windows, top-of-the-line finishes and appliances, and sweeping Hudson River views.
