Top fashion creative director/producer Nian Fish — she has worked with Calvin Klein, Gucci, Versace, Chloé, Ralph Lauren, Chanel, The Row, and Thom Browne — is listing her Greenwich Village home for around $1.69 million.
The charming pre-war home, at 302 W. 12th St., is a light-filled, 900-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit.
The fourth-floor abode opens to a foyer that leads to a sunken living room with a working fireplace and “hand-rubbed walls” by interior designer Gregory Bissonnette.
Details include ebony oak floors, custom built-ins, beamed ceilings and south facing windows.
As an 11-year-old girl in 1961, Fish tells Gimme that she lived in a Lower East Side tenement. Her Chinese-Japanese mom worked in a Chinatown sweatshop, and Fish would “take walks alone to Greenwich Village, as I thought I was a beatnik.”
She would sit on a bench in Abingdon Square Park, across from her current building, and think to herself, “I will live here someday,” she recalled.
In 1999, she bought the unit and has enjoyed it for everything from “quiet early morning meditation to stimulating dinners with my decades long friends” ever since.
Fish calls Greenwich Village, “the best neighborhood in the world,” and loves her “work breakfasts” at Cafe Cluny and La Bonbonniere, known as The Greasy Spoon, as well as walking along the Hudson River with her dog.
The building features a common, planted roof deck, with views of the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, where she often shares cocktails with her neighbors.
Fish tells Gimme she will be spending more time in Woodstock, New York, where she owns a home and where her film business, with her daughter Natane Boudreau, N + N Films, is based.
The listing broker is Sara Schwartz, of Corcoran.
