Gorgeous sun-flooded 1800 sq ft 2 bed, 2 bath loft on the 6th floor with elevator or a landmark historical building on a quiet little street in TriBeCa, one street away from Soho. The spectacular 6th-floor loft features an extra-large living space with ten oversize windows overlooking landmark 19th-century buildings and a rare vaulted ceiling that adds to the historical charm of the place. The furniture, a mixture of contemporary design (Noguchi, Bensen, Eero Saarinen) and of Danish Modern, is as comfortable as elegant. The art on the wall includes lithographies by Dali and Braque.
The stylish living room, with its long sectional sofa and cozy armchairs, is the ideal place for entertaining or relaxing after a day around the city, reading, watching a film on the large 52” Sony screen, or listening to the perfect sound of music coming from the Bose speakers. The dining room table easily sits ten people, and there is an open kitchen. The loft has two exposures, south-west and north-east, and is flooded with sun from morning to evening thanks to its ten oversize windows--a rare feature in a loft. All windows are equipped with blinds. The kitchen is fully equipped for great cooks, and there is a washer and dryer next to it.
The two bedrooms, both with queen beds and excellent mattresses, are at opposite ends of the loft, which is great for privacy. For additional sleepers we can provide either a small foldable mattress (perfect for a child) or a luxury double airbed that you can leave in a corner of the oversize living room. Both bedrooms have windows: one has a south-west exposure, the other a north-east exposure. One bathrooom has a bathtub and the other a shower.
No smoking and not pets, please. As the furniture is upholstered in light-grey fabric, the loft is not suitable for children younger than 5.
The neighborhood is fantastic. Our street is located in TriBeCa, just one street away from Soho. Our building is surrounded with luxury hotels: the Sheraton and the Hilton are one block away, the Soho Grand, the Tribeca Grand and the chic Mondrian Soho two blocks away. It is a very safe neighborhood where it is easy to hail a taxi cab. All the subway lines (1, 6, NRQW, ACE, JZ) are right outside the door and they will take you to Central Park, the Broadway Theater district and the Upper East Side museums in a quick ride. You are at the heart of downtown, and you can easily walk everywhere. North (just across Canal Street) there is Soho, with its quaint cobblestone streets and luxury boutiques, Greenwich Village, and Chelsea. South, there is Tribeca, with its chic restaurants and beautiful landmark industrial loft buildings. A few blocks West, there is the promenade along the Hudson River, where you can admire spectacular sunsets, take a ferry to the Statue of Liberty, and ride a bike for miles from the World Trade Center to the Upper West Side. And a few blocks East, charming Little Italy, elegant Nolita and lively Chinatown.
There are many excellent restaurants near by in Soho and Tribeca, and the best coffee shop (La Colombe) just around the corner. A few blocks away you will find pharmacies, delis, bakeries, gourmet supermarkets. And of course there is Broadway for fantastic shopping... Along the Hudson river you will find bike rental, free tennis, and playgrounds. In the summer time, a playground on Thompson Street, a few blocks away in Soho, has a free outdoor pool for kids!
There is wireless access throughout the loft, as well as central heat and air conditioning. The recently renovated building has a very clean and elegant hallway, a key elevator and a video/intercom security system. Towels and sheets are provided by the owner. The cleaning fee is $80.

This is a great location and a beautiful place. The industrial loft buildings and the smaller houses are architectural jewels, with so many beautiful details that I keep noticing new ones each time I walk around the neighborhood. What I like most about our location is that it is at the crossroad of so many neighborhoods: Soho, Tribeca, the Financial District, Chinatown, Little Italy, and the lovely walk along the Hudson River with its spectacular sunsets and amazing views!
The loft is spacious, quiet, and very sunny. Thanks to the light hardwood floor, the pure lines of the contemporary furniture, the oversize windows and the view of the landmark buildings, the place feels very serene, almost zen. My husband and I enjoy this peacefulness after an active day in the city. And the armchairs and sofa are so comfortable when we watch a movie at night!
We absolutely loved our time in your loft. Thank you for suggesting the skate park, which was our probably our son's favorite part of the trip! We hope we will be able to stay in your place again next year!
