This impressive, well-run building hosts a full range of apartment sizes from studios to three bedrooms, in varying layouts.

Building amenities include 24-hour doorman service and an attentive staff, a live-in superintendent, a handsome recently-renovated lobby, and two brand-new elevators. Atop it all is an impressive roof deck affording residents breathtaking panoramic downtown and iconic midtown skyscraper views, with chaises for lounging and sunning, tables and chairs for dining, thoughtful greenery, even an outdoor shower.

Lawrence House affords residents a short distance to countless excellent restaurants, among them some of New York’s absolute finest such as Gotham and Blue Hill; both Union Square – with its superb Greenmarket – and Washington Square Parks; multiple museums including The Whitney, The Rubin, and The Center for Jewish History; plus the vibrant cafes, shopping, and nightlife of Greenwich Village, Union Square, lower Fifth Avenue / Flatiron, the Meatpacking District, and Soho. The historic Jefferson Market Library and Patchin Station Post Office, as practical considerations, are just two blocks away.

Transportation access is unrivaled, with virtually every subway line plus Path trains accessible are close to either 14th Street, Union Square, West 4th Street / Washington Square, or Seventh Avenue. Train hubs Pennsylvania Station and Grand Central Terminal are both reached in a single express subway stop. The Lawrence House’s unparalleled quality of life is bolstered by fully-rented storefronts along the building’s sixth avenue side, helping to sustain reasonable maintenance charges in this most desirable Manhattan residence.
