"Tiny Street. Serious Real Estate"

Tribeca doesn't have a lot of little alley-way kind of streets, so the neighborhood is really taking advantage of the one they have in Collister Street. Every alley or tiny, cobble stoned road in Manhattan is ridiculously expensive, so the price tag guffaw goes without saying on a street like this. But, these homes are seriously expensive. There are only a few little buildings on this little road, but the buildings don't hold a lot of units. So, the units are pretty big and pretty much all of the apartments on this street have been remarkably redone. I haven't seen a listing for a home on Collister that is under $8 million. You can't really rent on this street (but you could afford to rent with that price tag why wouldn't you just buy?) They are ridiculous homes and yeah, they're big . . but, they're not that big. I guess it's the privacy of the street combined with the fact that the street is so old and charming. And, not a lot of people know about it so there isn't a lot of foot traffic. It's a beautiful street and one of the few in the neighborhood that has a real neighborhood feel as well as an old timey New York kind of feel. If I were really rich, I would look at places on this street. But, the unit would have to knock my socks off to get me to pass up a West Village row house if I'm being frank, here.
  • Beautiful view

"The street that time forgot"

Part of our aim in New York was to seek out some of the hidden or forgotten sights and browsing a few websites brought Collister Street to our attention. The street remained cobbled, adding an almost Victorian feel to the area which when mixed with the red brick buildings made it seem so un New York like that it was a fantastic experience.

"Collister Street Graffiti"

Collister is basically a back alley with absolutely nothing on it. The only reason I think that it is noteworthy is for you photographers out there. There's a wonderful tag on the North end of the street, and is one of the prettiest pieces of graffiti I've seen in the city. This moving art is one of the things that gives the city it's charm and I think it's worth taking a stroll by... on your way to other streets! Collister Street is close to the following metro stations: A, C, E, L at 34th Street, Penn Station, 1,2,3 at 28th Street, an the B,D,F,N, J, R, N, W at 34th Street & Herald Square. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is non-existent, and it is a good neighborhood for the rats.
