At first bluff, this listing might remind you of the lofts in Tribeca or SoHo (maybe even Chelsea).but then you realize, those lofts are long and narrow with small exposures, whereas 54 Stone is much wider, with over 70 ft of windows. Besides lofts in Tribeca, Soho and Chelsea do not come at this price point As a matter of fact, with a ppsf of just under $1,000/sf and with monthlies of $0.61/sf this is the best priced home anywhere on the island south of 110th street. Walking onto Stone Street is like talking a giant step into history, after all this is exactly what the cobblestone streets of New Amsterdam must have looked like before the English took over it. 54 Stone Street, is in the middle of this time capsule. Surrounded by the hustle & bustle of the financial center of the world, it is never more than a few minutes from many well-known restaurants, the South Street Seaport, Fulton Street Market and World class shopping. Yet only a "(cobble) stone's throw" from riverfront parks in every direction. However, if you do need to leave the area, it is good to know the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, R, J, Z, W, subway lines are all very close. And if your destination is off the island, it is only a short distance to multiple ferry terminals, the downtown helipad, the Battery Park tunnel and the Brooklyn Bridge. Aside from the location. the roughly 2800sf space itself also has unique characteristics that can only be found in building built in a different era, gone are the cookie-cutter layouts with perfectly measured rooms that never quite give you enough room. This place is grand in every way.
