One of the city's most consistently expensive neighborhoods, Tribeca, has bequeathed yet another ginormous loft-house to the market. Asking $8.2 million, the 4,000-square-foot 4BR/4.5BA apartment at 88 Franklin Street was converted from commercial just three years ago, but in that time has managed to show up in the New York Times and on HGTV's show You Live In What? (although a converted loft penthouse isn't nearly as noteworthy as say, a terrifying RV on the Lower East Side.) Perhaps the strangest quirk beyond the "imaginative and unique" bathrooms of the apartment designed by its owner, Liz Tiesi of Threshold Interiors, is the origin of the marble on its kitchen island which comes from Philly's historic Independence Mall.
