***PLEASE*** check calendar before contacting.

Penthouse loft with roof deck available in prime location.

Large, sunny condo available on Bond Street – steps from SoHo, the East Village and the Lower East Side . Across the street from 40 Bond, Ian Schrager’s latest architectural gem and residence, this open-plan apartment is perfect for indoor or outdoor entertaining, but also quiet and near all necessary services for comfortable living. This block was named block of the year by the online architecture blog Curbed in 2007 because of all the interesting architectural developments.

The apartment is very light, with 13-foot ceilings and a wall of windows in the living room. The private roof deck (450 sq feet), with lounge chairs and table for dining, has views of the neighborhood from all directions. The living room’s wood-burning fireplace is fully functional. The apartment was last owned by an interior designer, Adam Dolle, and was featured on the cover of several magazines, as well as featured in articles in The New York Times and New York Observer (not sure if I can post the links so google it).

The building is a walkup with four flights of stairs. You have the whole floor to yourself. It is a two-bedroom, and can sleep 3.

The Street and Neighborhood:
Bond Street and Noho have completely transformed over the last fifteen years, when it was probably best known for CBGB’s music club nearby on Bowery. It is now the ‘It’ location in Manhattan . The apartment is above a great restaurant, il Buco, where celebrities often come for a quiet dinner, knowing that the classy clientele will not bother them (I have seen Elvis Costello, Robert Redford, David Byrne, Sophia Coppola, Matt Damon, Sarah Jessica Parker and many others there in recent years). Just in October 2008 the restaurant was booked by Clint Eastwood for guests including Angelina Jolie, and Keira Knightley was seen enjoying a quiet dinner with friends.

The location is excellent for getting both downtown and uptown by public transportation. Some of the city’s best boutiques and movie theaters are close-by in Soho, the East Village or Nolita. It's a two-minute walk to Whole Foods grocery store and to Astor Wines, one of the city's best wine stores.

Bond Street and the building itself are steeped in history - Edgar Allan Poe was a frequent visitor in the 1840s and wrote 'A Cask of Amontillado' while in the building, and it was owned by PT Barnum in the 1870s.

A prior guest wrote this to me recently: 'I've found a couple other spots that definitely could work while searching all over VRBO, but to be honest, after staying at your place in October, there's really no other spot that compares as far as great location and stylish apartment goes. And the rooftop doesn't hurt either.'

Some notice is appreciated! I am not set up to handle next day guests, I'm afraid.
