101 East Union Street, Italianate home, Burlington NJ

There’s no denying that the gentrifying-at-lightning-speed town of Asbury Park, NJ is one of the state’s hippest cities (it even got the Times treatment this weekend). One of the key players in the resurgence has been the Smith Group, who’ve opened some of Asbury’s most popular bars and restaurants, as well as a condo project. The developer is now hoping to replicate this success in Burlington, NJ, a historic city on the Delaware River just 90 minutes outside NYC. And though the transformation is already underway (Smith bought four old homes and is turning a decommissioned firehouse into a trendy restaurant/bar), the time to buy in Burlington is now, as gorgeous 18th- and 19th-century homes can still be gotten for a bargain. Take this 1793 Italianate stunner; it’s situated on a half-acre corner lot, occupies 3,300 square feet, and is asking just $278,950 (h/t CIRCA).

Currently, the first part of two box tunnels under the Hudson Yards development, below 10th and 11th Avenues on Manhattan’s west side, sits mostly finished. While construction of the final piece has yet to begin, when it’s complete the remaining section would link the tubes to the proposed new tunnel under the Hudson River, providing better access to Penn Station. However, according to the New York Times, both tunnel projects, which fall under the multi-billion dollar Gateway Program, lack the funding needed to finish.

Located in the historic 1890 Wells Fargo building, the Wells Fargo Loft was originally used for the company’s horses and city carts. The loft, located at 299 Pavonia Avenue in Jersey City, was redesigned over the last few decades, but most recently by Jeff Jordan Architects in 2016 (h/t Architizer), who took full advantage of the ceiling heights ranging from 14 to 50 feet and amazing NYC views. To create a better live-work balance, the architects removed and reconfigured walls for a clearer separation between art studio and living spaces by using plywood and ample storage space.

From Jackson Pollock’s Hamptons studio and Dia Beacon’s minimalist art collection to the Rockefeller family’s historic mansion Kykuit and the Gilded Age ruins of Bannerman Castle, we’ve rounded up 10 artsy day trips that are just a stone’s throw from NYC.

99 Hudson Street, Jersey City, NJ tallest building

While Jersey City boasts beautiful views of Manhattan, the NJ water-front community continues to build up its own impressive skyline. In the last twenty years, 15 towers reaching more than 500 feet tall have been built, with seven more in the works. Notably, as CityRealty discovered, the latest tower rising in Jersey City at 99 Hudson Street will be the state’s tallest building, reaching a height of 889 feet. When the condominium’s construction is complete in 2019, the tower will be the 15th tallest in the country, outside of New York and Chicago.

Cool Listings, Historic Homes, New Jersey

History buffs and old house lovers will not want to miss this opportunity to gawk inside what is the country’s oldest log cabin, a quaint oak construction currently seeking an incredible $2.9M. Known as the C.A. Nothnagle Log Home, the structure was built around 1639 by Finnish immigrants and is located just two hours outside of NYC in the town of Gibbstown, NJ. Although modest by today’s standards, measuring 16 by 22 feet and boasting just a single room, the cabin’s current owners say it’s actually quite palatial considering cabins back then clocked in at only 12 by 12 feet on average. Now, is it worth the price tag?
