This $25K/Month Tribeca Rental Claims to Be Better than the Hamptons

Memorial Day weekend is approaching, signaling that time in New York when people start decamping for the Hamptons as much as possible. But this summer rental, at 17 Jay Street in Tribeca, is asking that you stay. “Forget the Hamptons,” the listing says, “Spend June through Labor Day in this serene and utterly charming duplex penthouse loft featuring a spacious 3BR layout, with two fireplaces and three lovely decked terraces!” Three terraces may not be as good as the beach, but it’s definitely not shabby for a New York City apartment.

The elevator leads directly into the entertainment level, where there’s a living room with high ceilings, custom-milled cherry floors and a wood burning fireplace. A wall of French doors open to a setback terrace that overlooks Tribeca.

From the living room, a gallery leads to an impressive eat-in kitchen separated by a large center island and wine rack. The built-in banquet seating and walls of French doors do look more country than city. Of course, the doors lead out to the second deck, which faces south and is equipped with an outdoor grill.

A skylit staircase takes you to the “bedroom wing” of the apartment, which holds three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The enormous master bedroom holds the third terrace, a peaceful space that’s good for your morning coffee. The suite includes a custom built-in office, large walk-in closet, and an en-suite bathroom with double sinks, a glass-enclosed shower, and a deep claw-footed tub. The actual bedroom space is quite charming with a wall of exposed brick, and more brick surrounding the fireplace.

A wide hallway from the master bedroom, which is lined with custom-designed bookshelves, leads to the two guest bedrooms (sorry, no more terraces!) that share a renovated bathroom. This lovely, Hamptons-esque pad is owned by the couple Sharon Schuster and Richard Blinkoff, both photographers. Wonder where they’ll be spending this summer—perhaps the Hamptons?
