Best Place of the Week: 55 White St

NY Daily NewsMay 03, 2012
The great room in a triplex apartment at 55 White St. in Tribeca has the kind of grandeur that evokes library scenes from movies like “The Music Man” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

There are 16-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, Corinthian columns and custom book shelves- complete with the kind of librarian’s ladder that makes you want to climb up and perform a musical number. A staircase leads up to an open office and a walkway to the master bedroom.

Adjoining the great room is a kitchen with pocket doors that can be opened to share the space or closed during a party. There’s also a bedroom on the main floor.

Downstairs is a giant family room and an additional bedroom and bathroom.

The entire space is 2,600 square feet. It’s listed with Ryan Fitzpatrick with CORE for $3.15 million.
