This historic Tribeca skybridge can be yours for $50 million
November 04, 2015 - Manhattan
A three-story townhouse and a one bedroom apartment connected by Manhattan’s Staple Street sky bridge are listing altogether for $50 million.
Bridge excluded, the unusual Tribeca home offers about 6,300 square feet of living space, according to the WSJ. The roughly 4,400-square-foot townhouse has a roof terrace while the one-bedroom condo measures about 1,900 square feet.
The building that houses the one-bedroom was built around 1893 as a hospital, according to city records.
The townhouse was constructed in the early 1900s as stable and laundry facility for the hospital, at a time when ambulances were pulled by horses, according to Tribeca historian Oliver Allen.
The purchase would technically be two separate transactions: The one-bedroom is part of the 67 Hudson Street condo development, but the townhouse isn't.
