sellers of awesome Riverdale mansion in yesterday's WSJ want a Manhattan loft!

real estate remains a spectator sport
I was out with a long-time friend last night, catching up on families, friends, lives (etc, etc, etc) and (even) real estate. He is a partner in a major Manhattan law firm, lives in Manhattan, and has no intentions of soon moving (and no intention of ever moving to The Bronx), but he talked about the Riverdale mansion that was yesterday’s House Of The Day in the Wall Street Journal with an impressed tone.

Dude, you read the WSJ for the real estate porn??

when 8,000 sq ft is too much
The most interesting part of this HOTD feature to me, as a Manhattan loft snob and general real estate voyeur, is that the owners of this magnificent mansion (8,000+ sq ft, 7 bedrooms, 6 baths, huge English garden) in the northwest Bronx see a Manhattan loft as the next stage for their not-quite-empty nest. As the kids say … kewl.

can anyone help these people find their way to Manhattan?
Let’s help these at-heart-loft-dwellers realize their dream … find someone to buy their darn house. Call their listing agent (the listing page is here), and put them one step closer to that Manhattan loft of their dreams.

Don’t you want to know what people with this kind of taste do to a loft?
