It’s Free to Look: 55 Vestry Street

This loft seems to have cheated time, with soaring ceilings reminiscent of the last century and amenities to suit this one.

It was no miracle face cream that kept this brick loft building, on the landmarked site of the former Fairchild pharmacy at 55 Vestry Street, looking young. Rather, it was built only a few years ago to look like an oldie without the age spots.

The budding starlet has led a brief but enviable life as one of the sought-after spots for celebrity browsers and buyers, including Blake Lively and James Gandolfini. That’s no surprise considering this apartment for one has huge terraces and a master bedroom with a greenhouse wall, offering sunrise and sunset views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.

For a relatively affordable $6.95 million, according to the Douglas Elliman listing, you might not even have to wait a century to afford it.
