Our friendly building manager will be happy to greet you and give you directions to public transportation and tips on the wonderful East Village neighbourhood
Come stay with us and wake up in a city that never sleeps in a charming townhouse from the late-19th century. Let us welcome you to a lively neighborhood where brick walls speak of its history and our cozy studios allow you to relax after a busy day. Our neighborhood in this part of the East Village has now been designated as a landmark area. In the late 1960's this was the birthplace of the NYC hippie scene and counter culture. The Filmore East and the Electric Circus are nearby where the likes of Jimmy Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Led Zepplin and other performers used to jam in their early days. Even today, St. Marks Place, which is two streets over still reflects that hard edge energy and left-over punk scene unique to the East Village.
The building was built in the late 1800's and has a rich history. It was owned in the 1960s by Paul Morrissey who made movies with Andy Warhol during their time hanging out in the Village. It is not a secret that Warhol used to work with Morrissey on his many movies, and the ground floor of the building was a makeshift movie and editing studio. We have tried to leave many parts of the building in its original state to remind people of the history.
Our philosophy at 6th Street is very simple. We want to give you the most authentic experience of what it feels like to live in New York City with the ups and downs of the East Village. We are not perfect and we do not offer luxury but we do take pride on confort, cleanliness and that we are family friendly. Each apartment has its own unique style in the kind of cool classical hippie. We have no intention of turning the building into an expensive place that caters to the wealthy or a five star luxury hotel. On the contrary, we welcome normal friendly people who appreciate a genuine New York building over wealthy aloof clients any day of the week. What we never compromise on is your safety and a warm desire to help you enjoy your stay. Furthermore, to ensure that we deeply believe in this philosophy, both the manager and the owner of the building live in it. Everything you experience in the building, good or bad, rest assured that we experience it too!+ More
