Equal parts charming and vintage, New York’s DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighborhood features a restored 1920s carousel, a plethora of art galleries nestled in historic buildings, an East River barge that now functions as a floating concert hall, and other off-the-beaten-path destinations. Located in a former tin-and-sheet-iron factory with a garden oasis at its core, 51 Jay Street is a collection of 74 luxury penthouses and condominiums built near old railroad tracks. The highlight of the development is 51 Jay Street, PHF, a 2,663-square-foot duplex penthouse with four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and an outdoor terrace that overlooks the picturesque gardens below.

The two-story loft, designed by architecture firm ODA, features floor-to-ceiling windowpanes and hardwood floors. Dark-chocolate-colored wood cabinets, marble countertops, and Gaggenau appliances add modern flair to the kitchen. The open-concept living space funnels into a backyard appointed with numerous couches and lounge chairs. The rooftop terrace showcases a kitchen, fireplace, and showers, all outdoors.

Penthouse residents have access to a wealth of building amenities including a children’s playroom, a fitness center, a yoga room, a laundry room, bicycle storage, and a resident’s lounge. Striking the perfect balance between its historic past and modern design, the lofted penthouse suite is currently on the market for $5.1 million.
