A Village Within The Village.

In the heart of the historic West Village is a magical block where time seems to stand still. A handsome row of 19th century brick townhouses overlooks a well-worn cobblestoned street. Tranquil gardens shaded by century-old maples and densely planted with hydrangeas, ferns, and flowering cherry trees wrap around a simple brick church, its gracious bell tower rising above the trees like a sentinel from a distant time. Rose-covered arbors frame winding bluestone paths between open lawns. Butterflies flock to flowering shrubs and woodpeckers make their marks on the trunks of knotted magnolias and crimson-barked crepe myrtles.

  • The Church of St. Luke in the Fields.

    The simple, stately bell tower of St. Luke in the Fields, dating from 1821, presides over tree-lined Hudson Street like a sentinel from a bygone era.

  • Morton Street.

    The slender ivy-covered townhouses along Morton Street exemplify the architectural charms of the historic West Village.

  • Grove Court.

    The townhouses of Grove Court, dating from the 1850s, are one of many hidden gems tucked behind the narrow streets of the West Village.

  • Cherry Lane Theater.

    The Cherry Lane Theater, which occupies a former 1817 box factory and tobacco warehouse at 38 Commerce Street, has hosted landmark plays by theatrical legends like Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams, and David Mamet since 1924.

  • Spotted Pig.

    The pioneering gastro-pub the Spotted Pig, which occupies a charming townhouse at the corner of West 11th and Greenwich Streets, channels the spirit of the West Village’s 19th-century alehouses.

  • Red Farm.

    With inventive Chinese food inspired by a contemporary greenmarket sensibility, Red Farm, occupying a 1910 townhouse on Hudson Street, epitomizes the modern-day West Village.

An Historic Enclave.

Welcome to St. Luke in the Fields, a historic enclave described by the New York City Landmarks Register as "the most significant architectural ensemble in the West Village and the earliest in date." Located within the Greenwich Village Historic Distric, the block bouned by Barrow and Christopher Streets, extending from Hudson to Greenwich Streets, was developed in its entirety in the 1820's, earning the distinction of being the first fully planned block in New York City.

Today, this unique village within the Village occupies a prime location in what has evolved into New York's most desirable neighborhood, valued for its top-flight schools as much as its artisanal luxury boutiques and intimate cafes. The last remaining open parcel on one of New York City's most prized cobblestone blocks is now home to 100 Barrow, an intimate residential gem with 26 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes. Located at the corner of Barrow and Greenwich Streets, just a block from the tree-lined Hudson River Park, 100 Barrow represents a rare opportunity to own a full-service residence in the very heart of the West Village.

  • A Secret Garden.

    A tranquil oasis in the heart of the West Village, the gardens offer quiet spots for contemplation amid lush greenery. (Accompanies the garden illustration for the St. Luke’s garden.)

  • Pileated Woodpecker.

    Dryocopus pileatus: This well-known bird, typically distinguished by a cap of bright red feathers, uses its bill to hammer into tree trunks to reach insects for food.

  • Butterfly Bush.

    True to its name, this deciduous shrub’s spiky clusters of dark purple summer blooms draw flocks of butterflies, attracted by its nectar.

  • Rose.

    The rectory garden, the oldest planted area, is filled with vigorous rose bushes that bloom in vivid fuchsias, pale yellows, and soft pinks.

  • Climbing Hydrangea.

    This vigorously growing vine can reach 50 feet in height, with dark green, heart-shaped leaves and lacy clusters of summer-blooming white flowers.

  • Magnolia.

    Broad, waxy, dark-green leaves and large white flowers measuring up to 12 inches in diameter are hallmarks of the southern magnolia.

The Gardens.

The gardens at St. Luke in the Field are a hidden gem in New York City, and a welcoming neighbor to 100 Barrow. Inspired by traditional English landscape design, the garden’s origins date to 1842, when a cutting from the Glastonbury Thorn in Somerset, England, a hawthorn tree that legend links to biblical events, was planted. Today, it is a tranquil urban oasis with grassy lawns and park benches tucked into shady corners to encourage quiet contemplation. At the corner of Barrow and Hudson Streets is the more formal Barrow St. Garden. Enclosed by ivy-covered redbrick walls and designed with four quadrants of seasonal plantings, the garden is dominated by a flowering Yellowwood tree. This Kentucky native, not typically found in New York, flourishes in the unique microclimate created by the garden’s heat-retaining brick walls and warm, sunny southern exposure.
