NYC's Top 15 Condo Conversions and the Regal Homes Within
In its roundup of NYC’s top office-to-residential transformations, CityRealty praised One Wall Street as “one of the finest pre-war condo conversion developments in all of New York City.” Ralph Thomas Walker’s 1931 Irving Trust Building was heralded as an art-deco masterpiece when it was first built, and renowned developer Harry Macklowe has taken this iconic tower and turned its office floors into spacious luxury condos as well as adding a collection of amenities geared toward the work-from-home crowd. From the iconic mosaic-clad Red Room on the tower’s ground floor to the crowning penthouse, One Wall Street is a new Downtown classic from top to bottom.

THE NEW YORK TIMES
For Fitness Buffs and Landlords, Gyms are Hot Again
Jenny Radke, a Broadway and television actress, was never big on joining health clubs or taking fitness classes. With a background in dance, she has long known how to keep herself fit. But the new Life Time health club in Lower Manhattan won her over with its Kids Academy, a 10,000-square-foot space where she can drop off her 19-month-old daughter for puzzles and other developmental activities while she does Pilates, jogs on the treadmill and winds down with a hydromassage. “She has a little yoga mat and can do what Mommy is doing,” said Mrs. Radke, known professionally as Jenny Laroche. “I get in some ‘me’ time.”
As people return to in-person activities with the loosening of coronavirus pandemic restrictions and a fall in reported Covid cases from last year, they are making a beeline for the gym, eager to shed extra pounds they gained during lockdowns. And the $32 billion U.S. fitness industry is greeting them with some new tricks.
Financial District: An Evolving Neighborhood
The rumors are true. New York’s Financial District is changing. In February 2022, the New York Post declared that baby strollers were outnumbering business suits in a part of town known primarily as America’s capital for finance, markets, power lunches, and all things Wall Street. Now, this well-heeled area has become a residential paradise for New Yorkers in search of a neighborhood with character, brimming with excellent restaurants, charming markets, cobblestone streets, parks, and classic architecture. Residents of One Wall Street are ahead of the trend, living in the midst of New York’s hottest new Downtown residential destination.
