A sprawling one-bedroom loft in the heart of Soho’s Cast Iron Historic District just popped up on the market, asking $3.25 million. This co-op at 85 Mercer Street is quite the looker with original pressed tin ceilings, cast iron columns, and plenty of light. But the most interesting feature of this modernized prewar loft is probably where you’ll be laying your head at night.
Justin Frankel, developer of the popular early 2000s music-ripping program Winamp, just purchased a cozy Cobble Hill duplex for $2.35 million, according to city records. The Tompkins Place pad has three bedrooms and 1.5 baths and is located on what some consider to be the best block in Cobble Hill, with plenty of shopping and dining right around the corner.
