Tribeca loft living is at its finest at this four-bedroom riverfront duplex. Located at 288 West Street, known as the Medium Lipstick Building, the brick warehouse building was built in 1855 as a spice storehouse and has since been converted to 14 co-op units. This particular apartment has all the classic architectural details– beamed ceilings, wooden columns, exposed brick, arched windows–but with modern additions like a floating glass-enclosed staircase, double-sided fireplace, sleek white built-ins, and a sauna.

How’s this for views? From both the terrace and the rooftop cabana of a classic Williamsburg loft near the waterfront, you’ll gaze at all five East River bridges, the Manhattan skyline, and a cool birdseye view of Domino Park. The interior of the penthouse at 58 Metropolitan Avenue isn’t too shabby, either. Asking $2,595,000, the three-bedroom apartment has a huge living area with oversized windows on three sides, contemporary finishes, and a private indoor parking spot with an electric charger and storage space.

This former photographer’s studio and residence at 49 Howard Street is the kind of classic Soho loft that we don’t see too often these days. Comprised of 1,800 square feet of open space, the loft checks all the boxes: 11-foot tin ceilings, hardwood floors, oversized windows , exposed brick and industrial pipe shelving frame the third floor walk-up condominium unit, available to rent for $6,500 a month. You don’t have to be an artist to live here, but your art will look right at home if you happen to be one. And unique interior features–like a bronze soaking tub and stone infinity sink–keep things interesting.

For a mere $14,500 a month, you can rent the style, space, and service of a bygone era in this princely pad in downtown Manhattan’s iconic Police Building at 240 Centre Street, complete with fancy furnishings, two bedrooms, two baths and 1,400 square feet of space.

285 Lafayette Street was built in 1886 as the Hawley & Hoops chocolate factory. In 1999, a rooftop addition was added and the building was converted to condos. Today, the open-floor lofts in a prime Nolita location are a celebrity magnet; David Bowie bought the penthouse in 1999 (his widow Iman still lives there), and Courtney Love and Ian Schrager are also former residents. But you don’t have to be a star to appreciate the colorful, modern design of this three-bedroom unit, currently renting furnished for $20,000 a month. Another added bonus is that the Soho branch of the New York Public Library is in the base of the building.

The lucky new resident of this Brooklyn Heights loft will never have an excuse to be late again.

The co-op is made even more incredible by its 17-foot ceilings, two huge skylights, exposed brick and millwork, and views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline.

The listing says this loft at 265 Water Street in the South Street Seaport is in “first generation” condition, which is definitely apparent from the weathered wooden beams and columns and original maple floors. The historic details and wide-open layout are the perfect backdrops for eclectic furnishings and funky art, making this $1,395,000 co-op a rare find.
