Photo by myself into Grove Court, located on Grove Street in the West Village.
A view into Grove Court, a tiny alley in the Village. A gate bars strangers from entering a courtyard decorated with pumpkins for Halloween.
These buildings were built in 1901 and each townhouse is relatively small, about 1,200 square feet of space. One of these was bought recently for two million dollars, or about $1,600 per square foot(!!!).
This is an expensive location, even by Manhattan standards. The costliest neighborhood has long been the Upper West Side, where the median real estate cost was about $1,475 per square foot at the height of the market in 2008.
I hope living in Grove Court is as nice as it looks.
