Memorial Day weekend is approaching, signaling that time in New York when people start decamping for the Hamptons as much as possible. But this summer rental, at 17 Jay Street in Tribeca, is asking that you stay. “Forget the Hamptons,” the listing says, “Spend June through Labor Day in this serene and utterly charming duplex penthouse loft featuring a spacious 3BR layout, with two fireplaces and three lovely decked terraces!” Three terraces may not be as good as the beach, but it’s definitely not shabby for a New York City apartment.
17 Jay Street
Here’s a $3.995 million Tribeca loft with so much flexibility you can practically do whatever you want with it. The 2,833-square-foot duplex condo is a former art gallery that offers a perfect live/work opportunity. There’s also a separate entrance for retail space on the ground floor (currently being used as a photography studio), as well as an artsy outdoor space with a charming European flair and funky glass floor. So when we say the options are endless, we actually mean it.
