When people imagine New York, they see opulence.
Gold-plated banisters. Celebrity sightings in bodegas. Skyline views from pretty much anywhere.
What they don't see: a $5,000/month shoebox above an Irish pub.
But if you know where to look, you can have your opulence and eat it, too. Enter: our roundup of five of the swankiest NYC lofts currently up for grabs.
From a revamped carriage house to terraces with 360-degree views, they're the stuff dreams are made of.
Because you want the most amenities
Nevermind that the TriBeCa locale is seriously spacious. The laundry list of amenities goes a little something like this: four terraces with 365-degree views, a club lounge with a built-in bar and dining room, a wine room, wine storage, a media lounge, a billiards room, a teen room (and one for the kids too), a music room with piano, a business center, a pool, a children’s pool, a spa, a fitness center with steam room and sauna, a yoga studio, valet and a partridge in a pear tree.
158 Franklin Street
Because you’re a minimalist
Every broker will tell you "This apartment is a must-see. Like nothing you’ve ever seen before." But this one actually is like nothing we have seen before. On the market: one minimal, Japanese-inspired TriBeCa loft with 1,700-square-feet of seamless custom design and high flying ceilings.
97 King Street
Because you want something a little eclectic
A swooped-up three-story carriage house in Red Hook just got a lofty makeover. The place includes an open-format kitchen and living room with 14-foot ceilings, three bedrooms, a massive garage space and serious bragging rights.
330 Wythe Street 4K
Because you’re exploring your artistic side
And because you can afford to be a cliche. If there were a checklist of Williamsburg loft requirements, this number would tick them all. Let's go down the line: explosed brick, big ass windows, super tall ceilings, concrete floors, taxidermy, a yellow wingback chair and a rustic wooden coffee table. Existential crisis, Burning Man tickets and yoga certification not included.
330 Wythe Street 6J
Because it’s ultimate
Will you be living above the previously mentioned tenant who will want to tell you about his sick idea for a “new app” every time you see him? Yes. Will it matter? No. Because this place is amazing and you’re never going to want to leave home. The former Chocoline Chocolate Factory (awesome) is 1,000-square-feet of architectural perfection with an iron stairway, built-in storage and godsent double sinks. Plus, one of those token big metal pipes running through it for gazing up at and listening to the soothing sirens of the city.
