Here's part of the official news release that we received yesterday about The Nathaniel, the new luxury rental on Third Avenue and East 12th Street, which has apparently seceded from the East Village.


(New York, NY) – The Nathaniel, a luxurious new development in Manhattan’s sought-after Greenwich Village neighborhood, has officially launched leasing for its rentals. The nine-floor building offers 85 residences ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is exclusively handling the marketing and leasing for project.

Developed by YYY Third Avenue LLC, and designed by Karl Fischer with interior architects McCartan, The Nathaniel is located at 138 East Twelfth Street at the corner of Third Avenue.

“In Greenwich Village, you need to deliver a product worthy of the location” said Eli S. Weiss, a Principal with YYY Third Avenue LLC. “The finishes and amenities at The Nathaniel are best in class and create a boutique hotel atmosphere for residents.”

Uniquely modern kitchens feature high gloss cabinetry with wenge wood details, Caesarstone Blizzard White counters, Calacatta porcelain backsplash, paneled dishwashers and Liebherr refrigerators, and built-in wall ovens and cooktops. All residences also feature White Oak floors, generous closet space and individual washer and dryer, with private terraces in select residences.

Additional building amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby, access to The Nathaniel Club lounge, a stunning Sunset Deck complete with a reflecting pool, bicycle storage, and a private gym.

Residences are available for August 15 occupancy. Studios start from $3,345, one bedrooms from $4,615, two bedrooms from $6,950, and three bedrooms from $10,950.

Wow. A shame they don't know that this is actually Midtown South!

Also! Interior photos!

Oh, and if you are interested in rentals, here is The Nathaniel's website.

What they call affordable housing

It is Greenwich Village - It's on the west side of 3rd Ave.

It is clearly not Greenwich Village according to every known definition of Greenwich Village. GV starts at Broadway. NY Mag puts it West of 4th Ave but that would overlap with NoHo.

via Wikipedia:

The neighborhood is bordered by Broadway to the east, the Hudson River to the west, Houston Street to the south, and 14th Street to the north, and roughly centered around Washington Square and New York University.

Bowery / Third Ave. is the West border for the East Village.
This address is on 12th st., reasonably West of Third Ave. So yeah, It's not in the East Village.

University Pl. is the East border of Greenwich Village

, but the people who'd be renting/buying don't care as long as it ain't Podunk, or, they just want to associate it with their hometown Greenwich, CT.

They can call it any neighborhood they want, but no matter the wording and the glossy photos of the interiors, bottom line is that the tenants will still be paying through the nose to live across from a dormitory & a fro-yo place. (Though I'm sure they'll be right at home, esp. given that places to get drunk cheaply & quickly are available every few yards.)

Ironic that the developer is "YYY Third Avenue" - such an apt name. I often wonder "why, why, why" is this all going on in what used to be a real neighborhood.

No, YYY, is for that extra Y-chromosome of the bros and douches.
