Situated on a coveted quad of West Village streets on Abingdon Square, 302 West 12th Street has the classic New York City cachet of being a Bing & Bing building. Within the building, this perfect-sized one-bedroom unit, asking $1,875,000, boasts pre-war charm and condominium flexibility enhanced by stunningly chic renovated interiors, from a colorful European-style kitchen to a vintage-modern bath.

This pre-war co-op at 26 Beaver Street in the Financial District is a loft-like corner unit with plenty of interesting architectural details, not least of which is a stunning set of broad brass gates that stand at the apartment’s entrance. Asking $2,450,000, the sprawling 2,400-square-foot home is currently configured with two large bedrooms, but there’s more than enough living space to create a three- or four-bedroom home.

When it comes to studios in Manhattan, a good measure of whether it’s “spacious” is if both a bed and couch can fit. Not only is that the case for this newly available co-op on the Upper West Side, but the residence, now asking $385,000, also has two closets and a dishwasher, both features that are somewhat of a rarity for studios in the city. Located at 235 West 102nd Street, the home is in a prime Upper West Side neighborhood, with Riverside Park just two blocks from the building.

The plan to extend the 7 train to the far west side of Manhattan announced more than a decade ago included building a subway station in Hell’s Kitchen. But because of budget cuts, the station was never built. New York City officials this week renewed calls for a subway station at 10th Avenue and 41st Street, claiming the neighborhood’s growing population needs better access to public transportation. The 7 line currently runs straight from Times Square to Hudson Yards, without stopping in Hell’s Kitchen.

MTA officials on Wednesday released the highly-anticipated environmental assessment of the Central Business District (CBD) Tolling Program, known as congestion pricing. The analysis says that the program could cut traffic congestion in Manhattan’s busiest areas by nearly 20 percent while raising $1 billion a year to fund mass transit improvements. Under the proposal, the plan could cost drivers who enter the borough south of 60th Street anywhere between $5 and $23, depending on the time of day and type of vehicle.
