LOFT PEEPING: MELANIE & PHILIPPE ZRIHEN
Melanie and Philippe Zrihen took two apartments purchased at a foreclosure auction and converted them into a 3,500-square-foot, four-bedroom home. Keep an eye out for Superman and Gilligan.
INTRODUCING CLARA’S, YOUR NEW SOURCE FOR FITNESSWEAR
While looking for new workout clothes one afternoon, Pilates guru Alycea Ungaro was surprised to realize that Tribeca has far more places to exercise than places to buy fitness apparel. So she and her team have converted a 15-foot-high, 100-foot-long ground-floor wall of her Real Pilates studio on Duane into a boutique called Clara’s, after Joe Pilates’s wife. The clothing isn’t just for Pilates—or even just for exercise. Mention Tribeca Citizen and get 15% off any retail item (excluding sale items) in June. Click here to take a look around. Sponsored by Clara’s.
