↑ This loft-like apartment in 39 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village boasts high ceilings and not one but two sleeping lofts and a separate office, as well as exposed cast iron columns, and barrel vault ceilings. According to the listing, it was previously owned by architects, which explains the inventive layout.

↑ This apartment in 720 Greenwich Street is slightly cheaper, and includes such original details as exposed brick along with such modern amenities as custom light controls. It's a corner unit with a somewhat odd triangular shape, and also has casement windows.
