130 Barrow Street: Review and Ratings

between Washington Street & West Street View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 130 Barrow Street by Carter Horsley

Close to the Hudson River, this six-story building in the West Village was erected in 1930 but has some of the charm of earlier townhouses. Despite its fairly stark façade, its top floor is setback to provide terraces and the effect is rather Parisian. The building is not too far from the delightful St. Luke's-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church that occupies a full block with gardens nearby. It is also close to the large, former Federal Archives Building, one of the city's best Romanesque-style landmarks that has been converted to apartments. Cross-town buses run nearby on Christopher and Tenth Streets and the PATH subway has a station nearby on Christopher Street. The industrial area to the south has been rejuvenated by the renaissance of the SoHo district and despite the fact that there is still considerable commercial activity there, this block and area is relatively quiet. Many of the city's most charming townhouse blocks are nearby to the east. The building was converted to a condominium in 1982 and has 83 apartments.
