Even a truly great apartment can inspire thoughts of escape—especially when it’s this close to the roadkill scene that is Wall Street. And when it’s as handsome as this two-bedroom, three-bath with river views at Morton Square in the West Village, it’ll get you a whole lot of turf upstate. The owners might consider an even exchange for a four-bedroom house, complete with a conservatory and veranda overlooking 44 acres, in Old Chatham, about a two-and-a-half-hour drive north. “It’s like another world,” says listing broker Carolyn Zweben, who has a second home in the area. With 6,000 square feet, it has plenty of room to entertain embattled friends from the city—of which, we can just about guarantee, there will be more in the next year or so.
