In the heart of Tribeca1 North Moore Street is a full-service, doorman condo building, but this townhouse unit gets the best of both worlds as it also has a private entrance, a two-car garage, and a gorgeous garden oasis. The super-contemporary, five-bedroom home is a mansion at 7,000 square feet, spread over three floors. A custom-designed steel staircase, marble floors, poured concrete columns, Venetian plaster walls, and a home movie theater are just some of the luxuries you’ll find throughout.

New York on Thursday issued a request for proposals for a Midtown West site located directly across from the Javits Center. Referred to as Site K, the parcel at 418 11th Avenue is one of the last remaining vacant lots in the area. In the RFP, the Empire State Development requests proposals that could be a commercial or mixed-use development, with interest made in hotels that are “complementary” to the neighboring convention center.

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy Juvonen have put their incredibly unique six-bedroom Gramercy penthouse on the market for $15 million. The nearly 5,000-square-foot home at 34 Gramercy Park East is the result of combining four different apartments over three floors. There’s something funky to see everywhere you look (Fallon decorated the home with antique finds from around the world), but some of the highlights include a “saloon room” with a vintage barback, a sound-proof pantry, custom-built furniture and wall coverings, and a hidden playroom equipped with monkey bars and a “jailhouse intercom” to the upstairs playroom. And, of course, it comes with a key to the park.

The arts are making a major comeback in New York City this spring, with live performance venues permitted to reopen in early April. And one of the city’s most beloved cultural institutions is leading the way. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts last week announced a new initiative that will transform its 16-acre campus into 10 new outdoor performance venues. Launching on April 7, “Restart Stages” will feature free and low-cost events by cultural organizations and community partners hailing from all five boroughs, in addition to Lincoln Center’s resident companies.

The New York City Parks Department on Tuesday reinterred the human remains of early New Yorkers found during construction in and around Washington Square Park. The skeletal remains were placed in a wooden box and buried five feet below grade within a planting bed, with an engraved paver marking the site at the southern entrance of the park near Sullivan Street. The remains were uncovered between 2008 and 2017, including the unearthing of two 19th-century burial vaults in 2015 that held the remains of at least a dozen people.

On the first day of Women’s History Month, a preservation group is renewing calls to landmark nearly two dozen sites related to women’s history in New York City. Village Preservation on Monday kicked off a campaign effort urging the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate several buildings located south of Union Square that have a connection to trailblazing women, organizations, or historic events. It’s part of the group’s broader effort to protect nearly 200 buildings in the area which is slated for new development.

The $350,000 asking price for this duplex condo in Harlem is one of the lowest we’ve seen in a while, especially considering it’s not tiny at 780 square feet. Located at 161 West 133rd Street, the home has a decent amount of living/dining space on the upper level, while the lower level makes a perfect bedroom suite with a half bath (there’s a full bathroom upstairs) and a laundry closet.
