One good reason to love the New York City government is that in 1964 they struck down a plan to put an expressway through Soho and ruin the neighborhood that is home to some of the best Manhattan lofts. Unfortunately, just because they still exist doesn't mean they are easy to find or pay for.

The prototypical Manhattan lofts are in converted warehouses or factories in downtown Manhattan. Neighborhoods like Soho, Nolita, Tribeca, the East Village, the West Village, Chinatown and the Financial District have some of the original spaces converted into residential lofts. Think Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze's home in the movie Ghost. After those original spaces were gobbled up, new lofts were built in attempts to create more spaces with open floorplans, large windows and rugged details. These lofts can be found throughout Manhattan and not just in the above listed downtown neighborhoods.

If the Manhattan lofts are too pricey, you can find some of the same spaces in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Dumbo or Williamsburg.
