5 Harrison Street: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 5 Harrison Street by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of

This very attractive, 7-story, red-brick apartment building at 5 Harrison Street on the southeast corner at Staple Street in TriBeCa has six condominium apartments.

It was converted by Celia Paleologos of West Palm Beach, Florida. Richard R Farrara of de Le Cour & Farrara was the architect.

Bottom Line

This handsome building has a prime location on a cobblestone street in TriBeCa close to a former American Express stable and the very attractive Independence Plaza Towers near the Hudson River and the charming P. S. 234.


The building has a limestone base with retail spaces and a very attractive stainless-steel entrance surround beneath a red metal spandrel flanked by handsome sconces. 

The building's main façade is nicely divided by narrow ridges whose bottoms are limestone squares. The top floor has a different fenestration bottom and is topped by a series of stone-rimmed boxes beneath the flat roofline.


The building has an elevator, wood-burning fireplaces, washers and dryers, central air-conditioning and a security system.


The penthouse duplex has a 17-foot-wide entrance gallery that leads to a 36-foot-long living/dining room with a 16-foot-open kitchen with an island, a 13-foot-long office and a bedroom on the lower floor and a bedroom and a very large wrap-around roof deck on the upper floor.

A three-bedroom unit has a 37-foot-wide living/dining room with an open kitchen.

A two-bedroom unit has a 30-foot-long living room with a dining alcove that adjoins an open 19-foot-wide kitchen with an island.
