2. The main NYU campus is found in the Greenwich Village neighborhood, however there are other wonderful Manhattan New York Downtown neighborhoods within very short commutes to the campus.  Meaning it’s worthwhile to look in the West Village, the East Village, parts of Soho, the Flatiron neighborhood and even Gramercy and Chelsea.

There are a lot of surrounding neighborhoods by the school that are fairly close, just depending on how close you want to be.

3. What is your timeline? The purchase process for a condominium even if you are an all cash buyer, can take 30-45 days once you sign a contract for sale.  If you are financing, add on additional 60-90 days at the very least.

This means if you are looking to close before school starts you will need to probably start looking 60 days prior to give you a chance to move in before school.


4. Condos near NYU are highly sought after, and the price reflects this.  Greenwich Village is one of the most desired neighborhoods in Manhattan and for good reason, extremely well positioned, a combination of historic value with neighborhood amenities, demand coming from both buyers who love the neighborhood and for buyers who are purchasing to just be close to the multiple university campus’s that are found within it’s borders.
