We stayed here for 3 nights for the 2014 NYC marathon. The apartment is exactly as it is shown in the photos. It is more spacious than the photos show. The beds are extremely comfortable. It was great to be in the financial district as it has a very different feel than other parts of the city. Lots to do in the area. Tristan touched base several times to make sure we had everything we need. Highly recommended!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Have you ever had this sensation overlooking the Grand Canyon grasping for words to describe your feelings? Well, I won't even try to put into words what it felt like looking out of the various windows of this penthouse or sitting on the rooftop with a 360 degree view. Even looking at photographs doesn't come close to giving you an idea of of how grandiose it was.
It was a once in a lifetime experience and we all agreed that any stay in Manhattan from now on will have to be measured with this one and can only feel mediocre. We (two friends from Germany, my two daughters and I) have been to NYC many times over the years and this trip felt special in so many ways.
You get a a very different feeling of the city not just because of the views. We loved being away from the tourist crowds and buses on 5th Avenue and yet in walking distance to the Freedom tower and Tribeca. You walk for two minutes and can jog or cycle along the river, watching New Yorkers do yoga on a pier. We didn't feel like tourists; for a couple of days this became our neighborhood.
The apartment is as beautiful, elegant, spacious and clean as depicted on the photos. Whenever we contacted Tristan he got back to us within a minute. Tristan was also very generous, offering us a discount. He didn't have to as he had various parties begging him to accept their offers for the same night.
I am trying hard to find something negative to say... here it is: My daughters complained after our trip that we hardly saw the city. We spent so much time savoring the views, having breakfast on the rooftop and sitting on the rooftop late into the nights with a cocktail that we had no desire to be anywhere else. It simply couldn't get any better.
I hardly use the word perfect but this was PERFECT!
Thank you so much Tristan.

My friends and I (4 others) were going to New York for 6 weeks for our rotations. Tristan and Ginny were actually going out of town the day we arrived so we had just missed each other but keys were left behind for us and did not have any problem getting into the building or the apartment. Since we were unable to meet in person, Tristan sent me a detail email regarding the keys, internet, laundry, housekeeping, and etc. The original plan was the housekeeping ladies would come to the apartment once a week. They were very accommodating and added another day without charge. Whenever we ran into a problem Tristan was able to help resolve our issues quickly. Our experience in New York was great and Tristan and the apartment definitely played a big role. I would recommend the apartment if you are looking for a great view and a fantastic owner to work with. Thank you Tristan and Ginny and congratulations! :)
What a grest Penthouse! My two kids (18/ 22yo) and I really enjoyed the space, the views, comfy beds, the quietness on the 40th floor & nice receiption from Tristan! Brilliant are the 3 small balconies and naturally the rooftop terrace with the spectacular 360° view during the day and especially at night!
We liked the location in the Financial District, its busy during the days, but quiet at night for NY standards. AND in walking distance to 9/11, Helicopter Sightseeing Tours and ferry to Statue of Liberty. Also close by good Restaurants and several Pubs! Thank you Tristan, when back in NY, your Penthouse shall be my first choice again!
This penthouse is amazing, the view is extraordinary from every room. Unforgettable.
The building itself is fantastic with gym, 360' roof top with chaiselong, chairs, tables...
Perfect location to be close to everything in Manhattan, walking distance or via underground.
Food shops donwstairs.
We were six and since there are two rooms only, I slept on an inflatable mattress in the living room. It was so confortable!!!
I suggest to bring an eye mask for the night as the curtains are light and earplugs for the AC noise.
I really enjoyed it and strongly suggest it!!!!
Tristan&Ginny were fantastic hosts. We didn't meet but we wrote eachother a lot. They helped us on an emergency issue and they were very prompt and helpful.
Great experience, from booking, to checking in to the wonderful condo! The condo was as described, the building is secure and views are spectacular. The location is perfect - a runner's paradise!
Trust the photos! Great Penthouse! Great Terrace! Great Views! Great Location! Great Stay!
We stayed at Tristan’s spacious apartment for 4 nights with another couple. Amazing space for 4 people, but could easily accommodate 6. The concierge and doorman treated us like we lived there.
Very convenient to multiple subway lines, only 2 blocks to the 2-3. Short walk to the Staten Island Ferry. Battery Park, The Charging Bull, Trinity Church and many other sites.
There's a cache of good restaurants a block south on Pearl street,
Stayed for a week in this apartment, with two kids. The photos do not do it justice. It is a spectacular, beautiful apartment, with fabulous views. A real privilege to stay here. Really interesting neighbourhood too, with easy access to subway for getting elsewhere in Manhattan. We also rented bikes from Blazing Saddles, about 10 mins walk away, and did the ride over Brooklyn Bridge. Fantastic.
Tristan was the perfect host! Myself and guests had a million questions before we even booked his place and he was more than patient with us! It was my first time booking a rental through AirBnB and I was probably the most paranoid customer possible. Tristan was there and walked me through each concern step by step. His penthouse is gorgeous and it was near a lot of fabulous restaurants, not to mention walking distance to the Brooklyn Bridge and the 9/11 Memorial Grounds. The roof top patio area is breathtaking for a morning coffee and there is a gym available too. It was my first time visiting New York and Tristan's place was just the icing on the cake! Thank you once again for everything. We will be back!
Tristan was a fantastic guest. He was extremely easy to communicate with and very accommodating. Would gladly have him stay again!
Tristan and Ginny have been nice guests. They left the house in good order. Hope to have them again.
