First Village, #7AB (Compass) First Village, #7AB (Compass)
While several architects and developers have given us some truly creative buildings and apartments, sometimes there's no substitute for classic New York design. Many of the most attractive condos and co-ops to come on the market in the past week were designed to bring this era to mind. And while some units were conceived to recall history, two of the following listings offer a chance to truly live in it with apartments in landmarked buildings.
