If you’re in the market for a penthouse, it doesn’t get much more penthouse-y than the AD100-architect-designed, 6,000-square-foot Penthouse IV condominium atop Nolita’s iconic Puck Building at 293 Lafayette Street. At $35,000,000, the princely property is priced accordingly for a mansion-sized four-bedroom sky-palace that includes a gym, bar, home theater, hot tub, and 2,000 square feet of terrace space with an outdoor TV and pergola. Neighbors include Joshua Kushner and Karlie Kloss, who reportedly purchased the building’s largest penthouse, listed at $42.5M, in 2021 (The family’s real estate company, led by Jared Kushner, developed the penthouse collection).

It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to crave chocolate. But the sugar-coated holiday certainly provides a good excuse to indulge. Far beyond the red-wrapped drugstore box, creating the sweet (or bitter) treat is now recognized as a craft all its own. Chocolate purveyors range from the old-fashioned to the eco-conscious to makers who hand-mix exotic ingredients and flavors. If you’re really hooked, you can make an event of it at a chocolate-themed restaurant, factory tour, or private tasting. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute gift for someone special or just a sweet snack, the New York City establishments listed here have something for every chocolate lover–and you can order online or visit the source right in your borough.

Mayor Eric Adams last week vetoed legislation that would increase fines for residents illegally occupying artist housing in Soho and Noho, a measure passed by the City Council last month alongside the approved neighborhood rezoning. Sponsored by former Council Member Margaret Chin, the bill would increase penalties on non-artist residents of the Joint Living Work Quarters for Artists (JLWQA) zone, which was created in the 1970s to allow artists to legally live in the once manufacturing-heavy area, with fines starting at $15,000 for those without proper certification.

The New York City Council on Wednesday voted to approve the plan to rezone Soho and Noho, a major policy win for Mayor Bill de Blasio in his final days in office. The rezoning aims to bring about 3,000 new homes, with roughly 900 of them permanently affordable, to the Lower Manhattan neighborhoods, which are two of the wealthiest in the city.
