Visit 12 Inspiring Homes at the 14th Annual Inside Tribeca Loft Tour
Steal a peek inside a dozen beautifully designed lofts at this popular downtown tour, which benefits the city's second-oldest park.
If you're in the mood for a day of urban home exploration, you'll definitely want to check out the 14th Annual Inside Tribeca Loft Tour. The self-guided tour, which takes place Sunday, Oct. 20, from 1 to 5 p.m., allows visitors a peek inside some inspiring, thoughtfully designed Tribeca loft spaces.
A dozen apartments will be opening their doors to ticket-holders this year. In one home, see how the owners converted their loft into an airy abode with delightful whimsical touches for a family of seven. Another loft, owned by an architect, has been transformed into an "urban treehouse," with 15-foot ceilings, 11-foot windows and loads of green touches like reclaimed wood, recycled denim insulation, and counters constructed from recycled paper, glass and fly ash. (In fact, 80 percent of the materials that were "removed" during renovation were ultimately reused.)
