Pre-war rental apartments in the West Village aren't terribly hard to find, but few apartments for rent in the West Village or anywhere else in Manhattan, can match the unique combination of pre-war elegance and modern luxury on display in the apartments for rent at The Archive. Built in 1891, The Archive is one of the most recognizable pre-war buildings in the West Village, thanks both its sprawling full-block size and its stately red brick Romanesque Revival looks. Both timeless and strikingly contemporary, the flats for rent at The Archive are among the most desirable rental apartments in the West Village.
Just a block from the Hudson River, The Archive's commanding location in the West Village affords every rental apartment with panoramic city and river views. But The Archive also towers above its neighbors thanks to its combination of modern luxury amenities and gracious pre-war rental apartments.

The apartments for rent at The Archive are as classic as the building's amenities are modern. The Archive's thick brick walls are both energy efficient and striking, and the sprawling pre-war floor plans, gorgeous oak floors, marble baths and soaring ceilings are equally impressive in their combination of modern efficiency and classic elegance.
