Andrew Feiwel, president of 55 Liberty Street’s seven-member board for three years and a resident since 1998, loves living in the 103-year-old ex-office tower. “Our building is beautiful; they don’t make them like this anymore,” he says. “When the conversion was done, people bought the floors [as raw space] and designed them themselves. Every floor plan is different. There are no cookie-cutter apartments. You get very good light and air.” Despite the mammoth restoration projects of the last few years, he enjoys the challenges of service. A real estate broker by day, Feiwel brings his marketing expertise to the board. But, paradoxically, he also feels that the building doesn’t need much promotion. “It’s a great place and in a great neighborhood,” he notes enthusiastically. “I just love waking up in the apartment. I have 11 windows, with great views. I get to see the river, the sky, and the sunsets.”
