Astor Place and NoHo

The Carl Fischer Building

This handsome, beige-brick, 12-story building was erected in 1926 and for many years was known as the Carl Fisher Building. It was converted to 26 condominium 'loft' apartments in 2001. Across from the landmark Cooper Union building and its famous clock facing a small park at 7th Street, close to the legendary McSorley's saloon, this location is convenient to Greenwich Village, NoHo and the East Village. It is one block away from St. Mark's Place, the western extension of Eighth Street and the main drag of the East Village. It is also one block north of 6th Street, which is lined with many Indian restaurants. This Art Deco-style building has a doorman, a four-story limestone base, multi-paned windows, arched windows on the third floor, high ceilings, and a large lobby. It has no garage, no sidewalk landscaping and no health club. This development includes not only 62 Cooper Square but also the four-story buildings at 52 and 54 Cooper Square. This is one of the city's most bustling neighborhoods. It is close to New York University and not far from Washington Square Park. There is excellent shopping in the area, including the great Strand Bookstore on Broadway at 12th Street and many boutiques along Broadway nearby. There is excellent public transportation.
