Coming to NYC in 2018!
Happy New Year and welcome to reductions in deductions for state and local taxes, mortgage interest taxes, and property taxes! After calling your accountant, get out and explore the newest additions to our city that make it worth a little extra.
The first phase of this complete neighborhood at the top of the High Line will open to the public this year. It will include a Spanish Food Hall and a public square with a centerpiece of a massive steel sculptural Vessel, which will feature 154 interconnecting flights of stairs and 80 landings.
As part of the new Essex Crossing development on the Lower East Side, this soaring, light-filled, landscaped underground market was conceived to echo La Boqueria in Barcelona and Pike Place Market in Seattle. It will debut with tons of local vendors, a beer hall, a farmer’s market, and retail. It will also be the new home of the popular Essex Street Market.
Prospect Park becomes permanently car-free as of this month after a wildly successful pilot program last summer. New parks will be unveiled across Brooklyn this year: Domino Park, along the Williamsburg waterfront, Pier 3 Greenway Terrace in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Greenpoint’s waterfront esplanade are all on schedule to open to the public by summer.
Museum Exhibits Celebrating New York City
At the Museum of the City of New York, the architect responsible for so many elegant pre-war buildings is celebrated in “Mansions in the Sky: The Architecture of Rosario Candela” (May 17 – September 23). The official photographer for Madison Square Garden captured many defining moments in the city’s history, and “New York Through the Lens of George Kalinsky” at the New-York Historical Society (February 2 – June 3) shares these iconic moments. “Waterfront” at the Brooklyn Historical Society/Dumbo (opens January 20) is a multi-media experience that recounts the vibrant history of the Brooklyn waterfront.
Stay warm and have fun!
