River Lofts via Douglas Elliman River Lofts via Douglas Elliman
This August was an especially hot month, and that statement applies to the condo market as well as the temperature. Sales are on the rise, and amazing new homes are coming on the market. Whether prewar gems or stunning new developments, these apartments feature sweeping views, spacious layouts, top-of-the-line finishes and details, and highly desirable locations. And when multiple Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep listed her Tribeca penthouse, the market saw enough star power to rival the Perseids meteor shower.
