Tour the Expanded New York Loft Where Taylor Swift Shot Polaroids for ‘1989’

This artsy downtown New York City loft was where Taylor Swift took the Polaroids that came with her “1989” album.

The duplex apartment is part of the iconic MacIntyre building—a cooperative apartment block built in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in 1892. It has an enviable corner location on the bustling intersection of Broadway and 18th Street and has views of Union Square in the distance from its 18 oversized windows.

But Swifties (the name for Swift’s fandom) will love that the home is easy to spot in a number of the snaps that came with the inserts of her “1989” album, released 2014. The three most-recognizable ones are where the singer sits against a door featuring the lyric: “If you leave me I’m coming with you” in capital letters and two others which show Swift sitting in an armchair and on the back of a sofa in front of its windows, according to selling agent Shane Boyle.

The property’s launch to the market coincided with the re-release of “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” on Oct. 27 across different listening formats, including cassette tape. The first version of “1989” came out exactly nine years ago in 2014.

The three-bedroom property belonged to film director Tannaz Hazemi at the time of the Swift photoshoot. It is now owned by Sarah Johnson, the daughter of billionaire financier and owner of the San Francisco Giants Charles B. Johnson. She bought the apartment five years ago and significantly increased its footprint by combining it with another apartment, but kept it looking as original as possible, Boyle said.

“Walking into the home is like stepping back in time. … It channels authentic, home-crafted loft style with its rustic and artistic feel. It’s a cool, central apartment with a Tiffany-blue fridge, glossy wooden flooring, exposed walls showing old structural timbers, and opaque glass panels around the old elevator shaft,” Boyle said.


The best features of the home are its large south and west-facing windows, its 12-foot-high ceilings, and its elegant bones. It is full of historic charm and rustic stylings: its windows feature original sign writing; its kitchen cabinets are made from reclaimed wood; and it has a copper bathtub and a statement steel staircase, wrapped in tree vines.
