Is Wall Street Fit for Human Habitation?

Non-believers may insist that Wall Street will always be half a neighborhood — abandoned by its suited financiers at the end of the day — but apartment hunters are determinedly checking it out. The cobblestone streets, the deep history, the architecture, and the harbor views are reason enough for them to make the trek. Plus, pedigreed condo-conversions like the Cipriani Club Residences and the Armani-branded 20 Pine have raised Wall Street’s profile, convincing the glitterati — or, at least, their acolytes — to flock to them. Many buildings are amenity-heavy to compensate for the area’s dearth of services (Au Bon Pain doesn’t count.). But a prep school has opened here, and Hermès and Tiffany’s are coming, too. Toss a decent supermarket into the mix and perhaps naysayers will quiet down. To see where you stand on the debate, stop in at some open houses this weekend. After the jump, a selection of properties up for sale. —S. Jhoanna Robledo
