Built in 1892, the Archive is a prewar mid-rise in the West Village that marries old world charm and modern elegance. The Archive was converted to New York rental apartments in 1988. The red-brick building spans ten floors and houses 479 units, all of which are easily accessible via elevator.
The combination of classic and modern elements is what truly sets the residences of the Archive apart from other New York rentals. Apartments feature thick brick walls that are both energy efficient and aesthetically appealing. The spacious floor plan, in conjunction with sprawling ceilings and generously oversized windows, gives the units a uniquely airy and open feeling. Gorgeous oak floors lend an additional touch of prewar elegance. Kitchens are fully equipped with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and wooden cabinetry. Marble baths are the epitome of luxury, replete with opulent soaking tubs and stainless steel accents. The Archive also offers duplex loft-style rental apartments.
The convenience and luxury doesn't end with the apartments but extends to all aspects of the Archive, with a generous list of services and amenities. There's a 24-hour concierge, doorman, lobby attendant, valet and full-service garage. On-site amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, laundry on every floor, and a lovingly landscaped roof deck, from which residents can enjoy stunning Hudson River views.
Residents of the Archive enjoy a central West Village location, with a variety of boutiques, restaurants, galleries, pubs and nightlife in the nearby area. Just one block away lies the Hudson River. Transportation will never be an issue for residents at the Archive, with dependable cross-town bus service, the subway, and the PATH train nearby.
