Property Description

38 East 4th Street, formerly known as The Lafayette House, is a five-story, 7,005± square foot Greek-revival townhouse located between Lafayette Street and the Bowery in the heart of the NoHo District. This iconic brownstone was built in 1848 and is located on one of the most fashionable streets in New York City. From 2006 to 2019, the property was operated by owners Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson as a boutique hotel and short-term stay accommodating tourists, friends and family and even overflow guests from the nearby Bowery Hotel. Eric and Sean, who between them opened art nightclub Area and notable hot spots like B Bar & Grill, The Waverly Inn, The Park, The Maritime, The Ludlow Hotel, The Jane and The Bowery Hotel, converted the brownstone to feel more like a pied-à-terre than a hotel, so each of the fifteen spacious, hardwood-floored rooms is individually decorated with grand fireplaces, brass fittings in the bathrooms and antique furnishings.

Greenwich Village | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Birthplace of beatniks, Greenwich Village has always been a neighborhood bursting with creativity, home to artists, poets, musicians and writers. There is a lot of foot traffic in the neighborhood, as it gives convenient access to many other neighborhoods. There are a lot of popular eateries on MacDougal Street and bars on Bleecker Street. The neighborhood has a bit of a college-town feel, due to the presence of NYU. There aren’t large chain stores here, so it isn’t really a mecca for shopaholics, but you can find interesting vintage stores and specialty boutiques.

Available housing is centered on pre-war walk-ups. You can find good deals on the quieter, tree-lined side streets, as opposed to the bustling avenues. There are pockets of brownstones and townhouses, some dating back to the early 19th century, throughout the neighborhood, as well. You will find more luxurious housing in the newer high-rise buildings on Park and Fifth Avenues.

Washington Square Park is the heart of the neighborhood. If you sit near the Arch and close your eyes, you might catch an echo of the music and social history of the Park, floating through the air. Greats like Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon started their storied careers right here in Greenwich Village. Today, the Village is a celebration of diversity, where everyone is welcome.
