The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

The Shenandoah



The Shenandoah at 10 Sheridan Square is a favorite doorman building in the village. The gothic structure was designed by Emory Roth and built in 1929. Fortunately, the original details are well preserved, making the historic structure stand out in the exclusive Sheridan Square location. The lobby has a gothic church feel and the entire original detail has been kept, which is very rare for a 100% rental building. It actually feels like a co-op and is kept like a private ownership building. The higher floor apartments soar above the neighboring buildings and you get amazing views. The casement windows are also brand new and the apartments are pin-drop quite. [Lyon Porter]
