One of the greatest private libraries in the history of New York City is the one built by Charles McKim for Pierpont Morgan in 1906. Part of the Morgan Library and Museum, it's one of the city’s most beautiful architectural love letters to the book. And now, the Woolworth Tower Pinnacle Penthouse, crowning a collection of unprecedented Tribeca condos for sale in this singular building, marks a return to the celebration of both timeless architecture and the contents of a truly great private library.
The Pinnacle Penthouse at the Woolworth Tower Residences boasts a two-story circular library at the apex of one of the city’s most architecturally important buildings. To live here is to pay homage to one’s internal imagination as it is transformed into a physical space designed to offer a rich array of personally chosen tomes — a treasure that will grow with you over time. Most of all, with interior design choices from Thierry Despont and David Hotson, this library is sure to be one of the most strikingly beautiful rooms in the city dedicated to the perusal of books.
It’s the perfect place to wind down at the end of a long day — with David Hotson’s design, a home bar is built into the shelving, so you can sip a martini while flipping through the pages of essential, collectible art books, like a rare signed copy of Andy Warhol’s “Exposures,” or a 1678 copy of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost.” It is a library worthy of what Jorge Luis Borges meant when he said, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
