A museum dedicated to the life and legacy of Jackie Robinson opened in New York City on Tuesday. Located at 75 Varick Street in Hudson Square, the 19,380-square-foot Jackie Robinson Museum celebrates both Robinson’s baseball achievements, as well as his role in the civil rights movement, and encourages a conversation about race and social issues. Designed by Gensler, the museum features immersive exhibits and artifacts, from an interactive model of Ebbets Field to his Dodgers home uniform.

The cool, geometric rental tower at 111 Varick Street was just completed this year, and now it’s opened an affordable housing lottery for 30 of its 100 apartments. The units are available to those earning 70, 80, or 130 percent of the area median income and range from $1,224/month studios to $3,219/month two-bedrooms. By comparison, the market-rate units start around $4,000/month for studios. Located in the burgeoning Hudson Square neighborhood, bordering the southern edge of Soho, this 30-story tower was designed by S9 Architecture with a unique undulating precast concrete facade. Because of where it’s sited, the building offers incredible views of the Hudson River and skyline.
