Located in the heart of Tribeca, a stylish duplex at 161 Hudson Street is for sale at an asking price of $20 million. The spacious five-bedroom penthouse was formerly owned by comedian Jon Stewart, who sold the home in 2014 for $17.5 million, as LLNYC learned. The home boasts 6,280 square feet, which includes a large living room, media room, library and access to a rooftop that has incredible views of Downtown Manhattan.

Besides being a gorgeous light-filled three-bedroom (with room for a fourth) corner loft in trendy Tribeca, this $4.95 million condominium at 161 Hudson Street is, as the listing puts it, “the epitome of chic downtown style.” Unobstructed sky views, sound-proof windows, central HVAC, a laundry room and a gracious layout with bedrooms on opposite sides for privacy are part of the infrastructure. But when it comes to fixtures, finishes, materials and design, the 2,315-square-foot loft is a perfect opportunity to see today’s top decorating trends–all in one place.
With its cobblestone streets, quirky artists’ lofts and industrial-chic architecture, Tribeca is a hot spot for filming movies and television scenes. This past spring, we did a round up of the musicians that call Tribeca home; now we’re taking a look at the flock of actors and filmmakers who have made the move to the ‘hood’s picturesque streets.
Tribeca’s most famous resident, Robert De Niro, is often credited with transforming the neighborhood into the vibrant place we know today by opening multiple restaurants, developing property, and most notably creating the world-famous Tribeca Film Festival. In addition to De Niro, we mapped out Tribeca’s celebrity residents who are famous onscreen and behind the scenes. Ranging from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “fuzzy nap zones” with river views to Lena Dunham’s artist loft from “Tiny Furniture,” it’s clear that celebrities feel at home in Tribeca.
