Shopping For Homes? Here Are 7 Open Houses Worth Checking Out in NYC

Take a break from holiday shopping to visit some open houses, from a duplex featured in a Lena Dunham film to a top-floor studio in Soho.

With the holidays right around the corner, this is probably the last weekend of the year for open houses. So if your idea of last-minute shopping is to check out homes that are on the market, here are a few pads that look worthy of a visit.

We found a lot of attractive stock south of 14th Street, from a two-bedroom penthouse in Greenwich Village to a dramatic condop in the historic Police Building. At the top of our list is the Tribeca live/work space that film buffs may recognize as the setting for Lena Dunham's 2010 film, Tiny Furniture. Regardless of the size, price and location, what we especially love about all these homes are the one-of-a-kind features that make us think, "Now that's something I'd like to see in person," whether it's a dramatic skyline view, an unusual floor plan or funky architectural flourishes.
