It's a penthouse, it's a townhouse … no wait, it's, uh, a townhouse in the sky?
Perched on a converted 19th-century Tribeca warehouse, this five-story glass house may look like it landed during a freak storm. In fact, it was more of a freak development move, which left an empty frame on the rooftop of 60 Warren Street until some artistic owners fixed it up with a shimmering white chandelier and a mosaic of Napoleon behind the tub.
Now owned by retired tchotchke-maker Edward Bazinet, it's got all the comforts of a $28 million home—including, according to the Sotheby's listing, seven bedrooms, three terraces, a full-floor master suite and a rooftop gym. But it's not every townhouse that also promises a view of Tribeca's rooftops. And if it gets lonely up there, you still have a building full of neighbors who can no doubt be lured upstairs by the sunset views. —Laura Kusisto
