Many New York real estate listings tout "loft-like layouts," but true lofts are housed in residential conversions of one-time industrial buildings. They are distinguished by the open space and high ceilings, and many conversions kept original features like exposed brick walls, exposed beams and joists, columns, and exposed pipes intact to add extra character.

There was a time when many of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn's loft buildings were taken over by starving artists who appreciated the low rents and abundant space for large works.
