The Rivington Loft
by Irma Zandl
After months of looking for a loft space on the LES and Soho in 1990 and feeling totally priced out of the market, I saw an ad in the New York Times for a space off the Bowery and it was really a last desperate attempt to buy something. I went to the see loft the following morning and fell in love with the space, the light, the owner – everything was perfect and I offered to buy it within 5 minutes of entering the apartment. Such a great vibe in the building and especially in this space – I had to have it.
In 2010, I started to plan a major update to the loft to make it more reflective of my needs for a live/work space. Jamie Dwyer had introduced me to his friend, Kate Thatcher, a young architect from Yale and her architect partner, Phil Ward. They reconfigured the space for me and all I can say is: PERFECTION! Rivington Loft perfectly suits my lifestyle, my temperament and my work needs.
Another fabulous aspect of The Rivington Loft is the amazing location! Everything I love about NYC is within a 5 minute walk – from Whole Foods to Chinatown to Delicatessen to the YMCA Gym to Acme Restaurant and The Daily for cocktails.
