one fine stay 2014 


Tribeca is a residential neighborhood with colorful flair - indulge your artistic side with a walking tour of local artist studios providing a glimpse of the area’s creative community, and watch a rich history of urban industry and commerce unfold before your eyes as you take in the local architecture.  Tribeca’s first residential development began in the late 18th century, with industry and commerce thriving from the mid-19th century into the 1960s.


Quiet, upscale Tribeca is known for being the stomping ground of choice for a host of celebrities; at home, at work and at play.  Catch Robert DeNiro at nearby Locanda Verde (or treat yourself to any of the neighborhood’s many other fine dining establishments).  Dodge the paparazzi as you keep an eye out for film crews all over the neighborhood - Tribeca is a popular filming location for movies and television alike, and home to the world-famous annual Tribeca Film Festival.  


When you’re ready for a different kind of stargazing, the Statue of Liberty is visible from a stroll or jog down the nearby Hudson riverside path, or come home through beautiful wrought-iron doors straight off the elevator and take in a brilliant night view of the Hudson River through huge west-facing windows.  Lofted ceilings and natural light abound in this positively glamorous two-story, two-bedroom and 2.5-bathroom home.  The first floor features an open floorplan, ornate master bedroom adorned with a beautiful oriental screen, and a royalty-worthy separate powder room.  On the second floor, you’ll find a spacious sitting/work area, and another bedroom and bathroom.


Your host is no stranger to the star-studded lifestyle: a successful, globetrotting fashion designer with a work area (and closet!) to match, she shares her stylish, sophisticated home with two lively dogs, but the wildlife doesn’t end there - you’ll also find beautiful sphinx sculptures decorating the living spaces, and nearly life-sized sheep peering around the occasional corner.
