This red-brick, 18-story apartment building was erected in 1965 and fronts on the Sheridan Square Viewing Garden, which is not as large and as attractive as the triangular "square" around the corner at Christopher Street. The western ends of these squares are at Seventh Avenue, where there is a subway station and the intersection is one of the most famous and popular in Greenwich Village.
This building is notable for its cutaway corner entrance on the southwest corner at Barrow Street where it is only a few steps from the famous "One if by Land, Two if by Sea" restaurant at No. 17 Barrow Street.
There are, in fact, two other restaurants across the street on Barrow Street to say nothing of the many on Seventh Avenue and in the nearby vicinity.
This part of Greenwich Village is unusual in that there are several mid-rise apartment buildings, such as this one, that sprout between a wide mix of earlier low-rise buildings of varying quality. There is, for example, a very handsome pre-war apartment building just across the viewing garden at 10 Sheridan Square that is very impressive.
This building has a white-marble entrance surround and a concierge and a garage and discrete air-conditioners and some terraces.. It was designed by Hyman Isaac Feldman.
It is known as Parker Towne House and 4-12 Barrow Street and 194-200 West 4th Street. A cooperative, it has 160 apartments, sidewalk landscaping and a bicycle room.
It is convenient to public transportation and shopping and has a very central location in Greenwich Village.
