Unique does not describe this NYC experience
Couldn’t quite believe we were in Manhattan - the loft is a time travel machine - creaky floors and all! We loved every bit of it - and I hate climbing stairs. It was warm and cozy and different and so much fun! Our family of four had a lovely time in the loft - it was spacious with enough room for everyone. We cooked one night and found the kitchen well equipped. Laundry on the 1st floor. We had a Great list of stores and restaurants that Andrea had recommended. The neighborhood is nice and quiet yet has everything you would need. Super clean. Nice and warm. Lovely stay.
Thank you Shubhra. It was a pleasure to have such appreciative guests and to have the chance to meet you!
stylish manhattan loft
Massive space compared to most manhattan rentals, stylish with all the facilities you need. Super responsive owners and excellent location under the Brooklyn bridge with transport links at Fulton street to get you almost anywhere quickly. Above coffee shops and restaurants so breakfast easy and local supermarket also very close. A spacious relaxing haven to contrast the bustling days in the city.
Really beautiful apartment, with lots of space and light. Andrea, the owner, was extremely helpful and accessible.
Cool loft experience made us feel like "real new yorkers..."
Sitting in Kit and Andrea's fantastic NYC loft was like being transported into a Woody Allen film. From the historic aspects of the building that were clearly lovingly maintained over the years, to Kit's well placed art work throughout the apartment, and the well-read books that lined the shelves - we truly felt at home and privileged to have the opportunity to stay in such a unique and interesting space.
The location is fantastic, and well we have typically stayed in Midtown when visiting NYC, the Seaport area is now our new favourite spot! It was happenstance that we stumbled across this loft as we needed a location that was within walking distance to the New York Film Academy for our two boys, who attended a week of summer camp. The loft proved to be the perfect location - it's proximity to Battery Park (where the camp is located) the Brooklyn Bridge, the Staten Island ferry, the half price ticket booth, the new iPic theatre (which our kids loved - we have something comparable in Canada, but children under 19 are not permitted), the ease of accessing the subway, and the abundance of amazing restaurants, made our vacation fantastic!
Thank you Kit & Andrea for sharing your home with us - looking forward to our next visit!

Wonderful stay in the South Seaport
Our family had a wonderful stay in this beautiful loft apartment in the South Seaport district! It was spacious enough for our family, thoughtfully appointed, comfortably furnished, and filled with art, literature and beauty. The neighborhood was great, with restaurants, coffee shops and an incredible view of the Brooklyn Bridge. The premises and amenities were as described, and communications with the owners were excellent. The owners left a detailed book with information about the neighborhood with helpful recommendations for groceries and restaurants. I wish we were back there now!
About Andrea Barnet
We are an artist and writer who bought our building in 1978 as a derelict shell and renovated it ourselves, when the Seaport was still an undiscovered and neglected neighborhood peopled with artists and fish mongers who plied the streets at night when the wholesale fish market used to operate. (The market is now long gone). We have lived there for many years and now split our time between New York City and upstate New York, visiting the farm in West Virginia where my husband grew up whenever we can. We raised our daughter in the building and have many friends in the seaport and tribeca, which is only a stone's throw away. Because we work for ourselves-- and now that our daughter has grown up-- our schedules are flexible and we no longer need to be in the city full time. We are deeply attached to the building, partly because we brought it back from the dead (it had no windows, plumbing or electricity when we bought it) but also because it is utterly unique, as I hope the pictures convey.

What makes this Townhome unique
Our neighborhood is lovely, intimate, and well located. (Our building is the third oldest existing commercial building in lower Manhattan.) What we love is feeling the historic character of old New York, yet being within easy walking distance of all the downtown neighborhoods and amenities we use most. (tribeca, the lower east side, soho and noho) Often, especially in good weather, we don't have to use the subway at all. When we do, both the east and west side subways juncture at our subway stop, which is unusual for New York. And because we are just one block from the waterfront, one never feels overwhelmed by the size or density of the city. One can amble over to the piers at any time of day or night, and take in the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines and on a clear day, even the Veranzzano narrows in the distance. (or take one of the ferry boats plying back and forth across the East river to Brooklyn.) For us, a huge plus is that our block is quiet late at night, so great for sleeping, but also filled with wonderful little restaurants and cafes. And there is a view of the Brooklyn bridge from our windows!
