This distinctive, 9-story apartment building at 196 Sixth Avenue between Prince and Spring Streets in SoHo was constructed in 1893 as the police department's 10th Precinct. In 1984, it was expanded and converted to a cooperative.

It has a six-step-up entrance and a 1-story rusticated limestone base with arched windows.

The red-brick building has a large fan window on the sixth floor where the building sets back on its north and south sides.

The building is located on a broad, tree-lined stretch of Sixth Avenue and is convenient to several popular restaurants. To the east, it is convenient to the many boutiques of SoHo. Moreover, Trader Joe's has just opened across the street.

It is close to several subway stations, and there is good northbound bus service on the avenue.

The 20-unit pet-friendly building, which is pet friendly, has fireplaces, sidewalk landscaping, and very high ceilings. There are common laundry facilities in the basement.
