A Loft in Tribeca Converted for the 1%

Ever wonder just what really pricy loft spaces look like?

Here’s what $7.6 million buys in my old neighborhood of Tribeca, in downtown Manhattan.

As someone who in my youth occupied several converted warehouses – barely turned into live/work loft spaces – these glamorous and pricy dwellings are some eye-openers!

These images of the lifestyles of the 1% are a far cry from the rudimentary bathrooms that artists built in those days.

It is not clear if the $7.6 million includes this expensive-looking art.

The division of the open warehouse space seems a little odd – New York’s loft warehouses used to be big open spaces that opened right off the freight elevator. Why all the fussy little curved vestibule and foyer spaces to greet the guests?

Perhaps this unnervingly concave curved wall for the bedroom is less than successful. There are no photos of it.

It is curved just to make this wall behind the dinner table a convex shape. While it echoes the windows in the great room, it hardly seems worth the sacrifice.

    Perhaps the curved walls are to further reduce the "warehouse" connection?

    You got your concave and convex mixed up.
