The landmarked 32-story building at 100 Barclay Street–formerly known as the Barclay-Vesey Building–is considered by some to be the world’s first Art Deco skyscraper. Designed by notable Jazz Age architect Ralph Walker, the building first opened in 1927; the tower’s upper floors were reimagined as luxurious loft residences in 2015. The grandest of these, unit 20B, is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home that spans 3,665 square feet, currently on the market for $8.8 million.

The palatial residence perched on the 29th floor of Downtown Manhattan’s iconic Woolworth Building is unique enough as it is. Now, Pavilion A at The Woolworth Tower Residences at 2 Park Place has the additional status of having been recently featured in the season three premiere of  HBO’s Succession. Two years ago, 6sqft reported the apartment’s listing for $29.85 million–about $3 million less than when it made its debut. In addition to its star turn on the Emmy-winning drama, the five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath duplex has been discounted 30 percent to $23.355 million.

The Port Authority bus terminal in Midtown may not be one of New York City’s most beautiful places, but the world’s busiest terminal recently got a beauty boost in the form of a 40-foot-high, 600-foot-wide gallery wall that features the diverse and fabulous faces of over 1,200 New Yorkers. The Garment District Alliance (GDA) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) have collaborated to bring the giant photo gallery, “Inside Out: NY Together,” part of an international initiative by world-renowned artist JR, to the Manhattan bus gateway.
