One of the first conversions of a large commercial building in TriBeCa to luxury loft apartments, the American Thread Building is a handsome structure with a curved frontage and an imposing staircase entrance with two-story high columns and an attractive cast-iron gate.

It was erected in 1893 as the Wool Exchange Building and converted to a condominium in 1980.  The 11-story, beige-brick building, which is one block south of Canal Street, contains 51 apartments.

Over the years, its residents have included the supermodels Gisele Bündchen and Naomi Campbell and actress Isabella Rossellini, as well as Cindy Lauper, the famous pop star. Current owners include at least one well-known artist and award-winning film director.

There are a wealth of great restaurants, boutiques and shops in Soho and TriBeCa and the building is close to the park along the Hudson including its fantastic riverside bike path. "Vest-pocket-sized" TriBeCa Park right on the doorstep makes the perfect front yard.

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy living in one of the most prestigious buildings in Lower Manhattan.
