Cool Listings, DUMBO

If you haven’t taken a selfie there yourself, you’ve definitely seen more of them than you can count–the corner of Washington and Water Streets, a cobblestone block with two brick warehouse buildings on either side framing a view of the Manhattan Bridge, often considered the most Instagrammable spot in Brooklyn. This loft is located in one of those buildings at 31 Washington Street, and it’s just as photogenic as what’s outside. The four-bedroom, top-floor condo is one of the largest in the neighborhood at 3,200 square feet, and it has 25 windows, four exposures, and three huge skylights.

Celebrities, Cool Listings, Noho

Listing photos by Daniel Wang of Brown Harris Stevens

Marc Balet was the longtime art director for Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, as well as for his talk show 15 Minutes that aired on MTV from 1985 to 1987. Around this same time, in the late ’80s, he purchased a three-floor loft at 620 Broadway in Noho that was used as a dance studio. He transformed it into a beautiful, light-filled live-work home, even calling on his friend Fran Lebowitz to have her father, who owned a furniture store, create custom curtains for the 17-foot-tall space. The window treatments remain today, as do many other personal mementos, including lava lamps gifted by Pee-Wee Herman and a huge wall of celebrity photographs. Balet has now decided to put the home on the market for $5,995,000 and considering it also has an incredible amount of outdoor space, it’s a place not to be missed.

Located at the celeb-heavy River Lofts condominium at 92 Laight Street, the two-bedroom home has stylish, custom features like a cowhide wall, an entry foyer that doubles as an art gallery, and, of course, some really serious closets.

Cool Listings, East Village

Listing photos by Yale Wagner for Sotheby’s International Realty

Artist William Wegman is best known for his fantastical photos of his Weimaraner dogs, which were even turned into a series of murals at the 23rd Street F, M subway station. Early in his career, he bought the East Village building at 431 East 6th Street, a former synagogue, turning it into his studio and residence. In 1996, he sold it to poet Paola Igliori, and other owners over the years have included artist Jack Sal, curator Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, and documentary filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Now, the very unique space is looking for a new artist-in-residence. The main-floor duplex is being sold for $2,749,000 or along with the street-level art gallery for $5,495,000.

Cool Listings, Soho

It’s pretty rare that the bathrooms in an apartment are just as photogenic as the rest of the place, but every single space in this Soho loft is colorful, full of patterns, and intentionally playful. And it’s no surprise considering the 6,000-square-foot condo was designed by Ken Fulk, who counts among his projects Major Food Group’s top restaurants, including Carbone in Miami, Sadelle’s in Soho and Vegas, and the Crown Club at Barclays Center. Fulk describes the five-bedroom duplex as “part city townhouse and part country manor house.” Located at 151 Wooster Street, it’s on the market for $17,995,000.

Conceptual artist, director, and photographer Michael Somoroff moved into this Soho loft at 112 Prince Street over 25 years ago.

As the listing describes, the living spaces are all outlined by “spectacular, floor-to-ceiling, sculptural ‘volumes’… all individually assembled and crafted by artisans on-site.” There are also three funky bedrooms, a towering library, and classic loft details, all for the asking price of $5,995,000.
