Cool Listings, Quirky Homes, Tribeca

16 Desbrosses Street

16 Desbrosses Street in Tribeca has quite the artistic pedigree. The former textile warehouse, today a modern-day artists’ cooperative, is where Lena Dunham‘s parents (painter Carroll Dunham and photographer Laurie Simmons), lived until recently and where the actress shot her breakthrough film “Tiny Furniture.” It’s also been home to architect Peter Moore, writer Zoë Heller and her boyfriend, “Sopranos” and “Boardwalk Empire” screenwriter Lawrence Konner, painter Matthew Ritchie, Seven Stories publisher Dan Simons, and sculptor Harry Rosenzweig, who has just listed his somewhat wacky loft for an impressive $4,970,000.

Rosenzweig is best know for his “warriors,” the larger-than-life, cartoon-like sculptures of men lined up in the 3,000-square-foot loft where he’s lived and worked for the past 13 years. If this wasn’t artsy enough for you, he also has a porch swing that faces the wall of windows, a sauna, and, though not mentioned in the listing, the factory’s original restrooms, complete with urinals in the men’s room.
