In the heart of TriBeCa - in an overhauled 1883 textile factory - is a beautiful brick basement that has been transformed into Aire Ancient Baths.  Reminiscent of Roman baths with soaring ceilings and candlelight throughout, one is invited to move slowly through a series of pools - warm, hot, cold, salty and bubbling - and then enjoy the sauna and ultimately xperience a relaxing massage.
