A light-filled one-bedroom is now available in prime West Village. Located at 459 Hudson Street between Morton and Barrow Streets, the co-op is on the smaller side but makes up for the lack of space with an extra dose of charm. A huge skylight helps drench the living room with sunshine, while a corner wood-burning fireplace brings the whole space together. It can be yours for $1,150,000.

Hanukkah is engrained into New York’s holiday season, but roughly 100 years ago the Festival of Lights was big news to many New Yorkers. Look at the newspaper coverage back in the day regarding the holiday, and most “took an arms-length approach,” as Bowery Boys puts it. “More than one old Tribune or World carried a variant of the headline “Jews Celebrate Chanukah,” as though there might have been some doubt. A 1905 headline even informed readers that, “Chanukah, Commemorating Syrian Defeat, Lasts Eight Days.”

Such headlines weren’t just the result of ignorance–New York’s Jewish population was low through the 1800s, and even within the religion, Hanukkah has traditionally been a minor festival. But a boom in Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe and a reassertion of religious traditions in a new country completely changed the fabric of New York. Eventually, the eight-day festival of light–which commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the Greeks over 2,000 years ago–emerged as an important tradition of the city.

Here’s what happened

This two-bedroom, two-bath co-op at 67 Perry Street is tucked into a landmarked 19th-century row house on one of the loveliest blocks in the coveted West Village. The familiar collection of sweet details–exposed brick, a working fireplace, bay windows, and high ceilings–is enhanced by a considered custom renovation that adds colorful design and modern comfort. The compact floor-through walk-up has been cleverly carved out of a railroad layout, and though it’s the embodiment of a romantic Village flat, the $2,995,000 asking price may seem more alarming than charming.

The owner of this Red Hook rowhouse, a local architect and designer, bought the property at 373 Van Brunt Street in 2007 for just $700,000. He then created a “soaring industrial chic” home, as the listing describes, using repurposed salvaged beams, exposed brick, and structural steel. It’s set up as a live-work owner’s triplex, complete with a roof deck and a green roof, along with a ground-level commercial space that’s currently an art gallery. It’s now on the market for $2,875,000.

This Red Hook loft at 160 Imlay Street has incredible views of the lower Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, and Statue of Liberty, but what truly sets it apart is how it overlooks the Red Hook Container Terminal, an active reminder of Brooklyn’s industrial past. The nearly 2,000-square-foot home is on the market for $1,995,000 and has two bedrooms, a separate study, and massive floor-to-ceiling windows.
