Back in 1978, this space at Tribeca‘s American Thread Building at 260 West Broadway was a student gallery for the School of Visual Arts, according to Art Nerd New York. At the time, a 20-year-old Keith Haring had just started attending SVA and created a large mural here for an exhibit. Years later, when the triplex loft was being converted to residential use, the mural was unearthed, and it still remains in the apartment today. The massive, 8,000-square-foot home is now back on the market, asking $7,995,000.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have long maintained a home in New York City, but now that the NFL quarterback has taken up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they’re consolidating a bit. As the Post first spotted, the couple has sold their Tribeca apartment for $36,800,000 million, according to property records. Brady and supermodel Bündchen bought the five-bedroom, 12th-floor pad in Robert A.M. Stern’s 70 Vestry Street in 2018 for $25.5 million pad. Just last month, though, they bought a smaller unit on the same floor for $3.5 million, which will presumably now serve as their NYC pied-à-terre.

Pearl River Mart will shutter its Tribeca flagship early next year, store owners announced last week, becoming the latest New York City institution to shutter because of the coronavirus pandemic. In a blog post, company president Joanne Kwong said negotiations with the landlord “have stalled” and that he “has made clear his desire to use the courts to recoup every dollar he can, not just from our business, but from our personal assets.” Despite the closure, Pearl River Mart, which has sold one-of-a-kind Asian-inspired decor and cookware in Manhattan since 1971, will keep its stores and new food concept in Chelsea Market open and the company said it has already secured a new location in the neighborhood.

The estate of the late Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison has just listed the novelist’s former home. The Tribeca loft at 66 Leonard Street is asking $4,750,000. Morrison bought the three-bedroom condo for $3,800,000 in 2014, before passing away last year. Unsurprisingly, the home has lots of built-in shelves, filled with books, moments, and art.
With the impending cool weather likely to limit the hours spent at city parks (which proved to be so necessary this summer) and the current health crisis still raging, New Yorkers will have to find creative ways to get some fresh air safely this fall and winter. For those looking for some outdoor space without having to leave home, we’re rounding up the best New York City apartments with outside amenities currently available to rent for $5,000/month and under, whether it’s in the form of a private garden, balconies, or a shared roof deck.

A new eco-friendly public pier opened in Tribeca on Wednesday, the first to open at the four-mile-long Hudson River Park in 10 years. Designed by landscape architecture firm OLIN, Pier 26 spans 2.5 acres, features indigenous plants and trees, and boasts multi-use recreation fields. But the most unique element of the new $37.7 million pier is a man-made rocky tidal marsh and the cantilevered walkway that hangs above it, providing an ecological experience and incredible water and Statue of Liberty views at the same time.

Amish Market opened in Tribeca in 1999 but after 21 years as a neighborhood staple, they, too, have fallen victim to COVID-19. Tribeca Citizen reported the news that the grocery story-meets-bodega (where Cardi-B was famously a cashier during high school) will likely close its doors by the 26th after a 90-percent drop in business.

For someone who loves to entertain, this Tribeca penthouse 166 Duane Street can’t be beaten. First off, it’s huge–6,200 square feet inside and 1,200 square feet outside (larger than most NYC apartments!). This roof deck has several seating areas and an outdoor kitchen, and it’s adjacent to a sunroom that has a wet bar. There’s another wet bar in the media room, and when the bar runs dry, just head to the 1,000-bottle wine room.

A true Tribeca loft is not too hard to come by, but this three-bedroom home at 77 Hudson Street definitely stands out from the rest. Just listed for $2,999,000, the home has been whitewashed from floor to ceiling, giving the space a casual beachy vibe. But when mixed with all those classic loft details–beamed ceilings, stainless steel accents–this vision in white is really something special.

When the neo-Gothic Woolworth Building at 233 Broadway was erected in 1913 as the world’s tallest building, it cost a total of $13.5 million to construct. Though many have surpassed it in height, the instantly-recognizable Lower Manhattan landmark has remained one of the world’s most iconic buildings, admired for its terra cotta facade and detailed ornamentation–and its representation of the ambitious era in which it arose. Developer and five-and-dime store entrepreneur Frank Winfield Woolworth dreamed of an unforgettable skyscraper; the building’s architect, Cass Gilbert, designed and delivered just that, even as Woolworth’s vision grew progressively loftier. The Woolworth Building has remained an anchor of New York City life with its storied past and still-impressive 792-foot height.
