Sure, this three-bedroom Flatiron co-op checks all the boxes of a downtown loft–sprawling footprint (7,100 square feet to be exact), high ceilings, 32 oversized windows, a cool mezzanine setup–but its artistic pedigree is what’s really unique. Located at 20 East 20th Street, the home was converted in 1977 by influential artists Gordon Matta-Clark and Les Levine, and it was at one time home to both Anselm Keifer and Julian Schnabel, the latter of whom also used the space as his studio. It’s now on the market for $9,995,000.

You may not think of Midtown East as a neighborhood to buy a historic loft, but this two-bedroom co-op at 351 East 50th Street feels like a downtown pad with all of Midtown’s convenience. The full-floor apartment underwent a two-year “floor-to-ceiling renovation down to the studs,” according to the listing, and the resulting product is a truly unique home that is reminiscent of a Parisian flat but with plenty of modern conveniences.
