Hudson Square, once known as the Printing District, is a neighborhood in lower Manhattan that remains a center of media-related activity like advertising, design, and communications.
At an average of $59/sqft, office space for lease in Hudson Square is considerably cheaper than its neighbor SoHo ($70/sqft). Commercial tenants will be in good company with businesses like Newsweek, Viacom, the Weinstein Company, Penguin Publishing, and PR giant Edelman calling the area home.
Positioned just south of Greenwich Village and north of Tribeca, Hudson Square offers some of the most accessible stretches of the city’s bike path. It also offers some sightly attractions in the Charlton-King-Vandam Historic District, which contains the largest concentration of Federalist and Greek Revival style row houses built during the first half of the 19th century.
With wide streets and relatively low-rise buildings, Hudson Square is a bustling center of business without overwhelming sensibility that can affect districts further north, making it one of the best kept secrets in New York commercial real estate.
