Washington Mews

Washington Mews (43)

Welcome to the past. Strolling through Washington Mews, or at least taking a peek from behind the gate, transports you back to the 19th century. 

This charming cobblestone street, one of the few left in New York, is lined with old stables ("mews"), which have been cleverly converted into beautiful, spacious villas and artists' studios.

The buildings on the north side were stables built around 1916 and the buildings on the south side were garages for carriages and date from about 1930. 

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney lived here. She was a sculptor and art patron and was known worldwide as the creator of the Whitney Museum, which is located next to Museum Mile.

These houses almost never come up for sale or rent, and if they do, they're snapped up straight away. I'm sure you can imagine why!
