Yet another chance to become Tom Cruise's neighbor


Every so often we'll tell you about units available in the American Felt Building on 13th Street near Fourth Avenue where, among other residents, Tom Cruise owns a place or two.

And we have the unit for you via Halstead.

This Fabulous high floor loft residence with open south and west views, in the heart of the Village, steps to Union Square features 12' ceilings, wood floors, wood burning fireplace, oversized master bedroom spacious second bedroom and newly remodeled oversized bathroom. Great gourmet open kitchen. The unit is tastefully decorated and it comes fully furnished. It is located in a well known full service condominium building close to great restaurants,shopping area and all means of transportation. Available immediately for a three to six months term!

And here's what your $8,000-per-month gets you...

And we leave you with this real estate-ese left on StreetEasy about the building ...

This building’s name “The American Felt Building” says it all. It really is the one-time home of the American Felt Company, who supplied the hammer and bushing felt for the Steinway piano company, who’s showroom cum concert Hall was one block away back in the day. This was one of the first re-purposed buildings in the area, and remains one of the most desirable: the ceilings are high, the windows are big, the roof deck is wonderful (and under-used) and, not to be overlooked or undervalued, the construction is so solid you will never hear one of your neighbors; they could be playing Lizst on their Steinway piano and you would never know it. The floorplans may seem small, but some creative engineering has turned the loft apartments into unique spaces tricked out with platforms, balconies, extra windows, interior walls, etc. Truly, no two apartments are alike in this building.

What about someone playing the Black Keys?

man I hate those noisy kids and their raucous Liszt parties. I'll be enjoying a nice quiet evening, but then SOMEONE just HAS to jump on the Steinway...

I'm glad it comes with a stripper pole on the kitchen counter. I can't believe that wasn't a selling point. Also, how far is it from the nearest Luke's Lobster.

When this place converted, studios were 75K. They're not that nice though. "Conversion technology" has greatly improved.
