|Covid-19|173 and 176 Perry Street Wikipedia
173 and 176 Perry Street are a pair of apartment towers by architect Richard Meier in Manhattan's West Village, at West Street. Designed in 1999-2002 by Richard Meier & Partners, they are the first new construction undertaken by Meier in Manhattan, although they stand a short walk away from his 1970 renovation of the Westbeth Artists Community.
New York Times reporter Penelope Green referred to Meier's paired towers as "beauty queens". The third building in the assemblage, 165 Charles Street, to the south of the original two, was completed in 2004 and was also designed by Meier.
