Sometimes a look through New York real estate listings can send the searcher on a trip back in time. Industrial lofts get transformed into sprawling condominiums. Prewar apartments dating back to the Gilded Age get updated for today, but not at the expense of their timeless architectural details. And in some cases, we get a look back at a time when Downtown Manhattan was primarily populated by artists instead of billionaires. The past week saw over 1,000 new listings come on the market, and we've chosen our favorites below.
