167 Perry Street: Review and Ratings

between Washington Street & West Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 167 Perry Street by Carter Horsley

This six-story, apartment building was built as a cooperative in 1986 and has 74 apartments and is one of the most attractive "modern" buildings in Greenwich Village because of its rakishly angled balconies and its strongly patterned two-tone façades.

"A low-rise, neatly detailed, comfy-looking place," was how the building was described by Elliot Willensky and Norval White in their great book, "The A.I.A. Guide to New York City, Third Edition," 1988 (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich).

With its waterfront views, this elegant but modest building, which was designed and developed by William Monaghan, is at the end of one of the nicest streets in the Village. Most apartments have fireplaces and the building has a roofdeck and gardens.

This area of the West Village is very interesting with a wild mix of buildings ranging from setback townhouses with front gardens to modern high-rises to lofts and cobblestone streets and a wide variety of restaurants and boutiques.

The proximity to the river is enticing and there is good public transportation a few pleasant blocks away.

There is a garage across Perry Street from this building. The building just to the east of this has a rather unusual entrance that is five steps up to a platform with a small canopy that leads into a small but bright lobby. The entrance steps are parallel to the building, which has sidewalk landscaping but no doorman.
