Greenwich Village is the perfect New York neighborhood. From its storied cultural history to NYU and Washington Square Park, it’s fair to say it’s iconic. Also fair to say? Apartments in the Village usually come with high price tags. But there are deals to be found — and lucky for you, we found one! Our Deal of the Week, 210 Thompson St. #6AS, is a Greenwich Village 2BR with a great kitchen and a location that’s practically right on campus.
The Price: $675,000
The median asking price for an apartment in Greenwich Village is $1.6 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week sits almost $1 million below the median asking price for the neighborhood!
Buyers who choose to put down the 20% minimum down payment of $135,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,676. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,285 and a maintenance fee of $1,391.
Why You’ll Love It…
Let’s start with the heart of this Greenwich Village 2BR: the kitchen. This open-concept space has been outfitted with custom cabinetry both under and over the sleek Corian countertops. There are stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. (Score!) And there’s also a unique breakfast bar, which could be the perfect spot for casual dining or answering emails over a bowl of cereal.
In addition, our Deal of the Week gets lots of light from three different exposures. The living room’s windows overlook tree-lined Thompson Street. Each bedroom has a generously sized window as well, and there are even two in the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, it has a standing shower and enough space for some extra storage — or potential upgrades. Each bedroom is about the same size, so no worries about a bedroom that’s more like an office here. There’s also a foyer, which can make a huge difference when it comes to organizing your space.
And finally, there’s the location. This apartment is ideally situated, especially for those who need to be close to NYU. Washington Square Park is less than two blocks away. There are a myriad of transportation options nearby, and tons of restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and bars to keep you occupied. If you want to be downtown, it doesn’t get more central!

… And Why You Might Not
Sadly, this Greenwich Village 2BR is a walkup. And the building doesn’t have laundry, so you’ll have to lug your clothes up and down the stairs. But there are plenty of laundromats within a few blocks. Also, weirdly, there does not appear to be a single closet in the entire apartment. However, as pictured in the photos, there’s just enough space for an armoire or cabinet in each bedroom.
