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.
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.
