An enchanting estate in Upstate New York that has 160 acres of land and a residence constructed in 1775 is asking $15,000,000. The property, dubbed White Bridge Farm, is located in Old Chattam, a historic hamlet in Columbia County. In addition to the 18th-century home, which has been renovated but maintains some original detail, the farm includes multiple converted barns, horse stables, and a stunning pool and pool house, all surrounded by a landscape that looks like it was pulled from the pages of a storybook.

New York City will host five huge free concerts in every borough next month to mark the city’s recovery from the pandemic. Earlier this summer, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced plans for a “mega-concert” on Central Park’s Great Lawn in August and later revealed the show’s three major headliners: Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, and Jennifer Hudson. On Thursday, the mayor said there will be four additional free concerts, one in each borough, as part of a weeklong celebration dubbed “Homecoming Week.”

It’s hard to believe this home is just two hours from New York City, as its unusual location above a saltmarsh feels more like a moody northwest setting. Located on 1.7 acres in Branford Connecticut, the contemporary house was designed and built just this year by renowned architect Peter Kurt Woerner to take advantage of its site high on a granite promontory. Woerner titled the property “Osprey House & Studio” as a nod to the surrounding marsh wildlife sanctuary that’s home to osprey, geese, ducks, seagulls, hawks, and falcon. Comprised of a 4,800-square-foot main house and a 746-square-foot studio/guesthouse, it’s asking $2,800,000.

With tenants like Google and Disney soon moving in, Hudson Square is on its way to becoming the city’s next big business district.

Developed by Hudson Square Properties, a joint venture of Trinity Church Wall Street and Norges Bank Investment Management with Hines, 555 Greenwich is expected to be one of the most efficient buildings in New York City, projected to exceed the city’s 2030 climate goals for office towers by 45 percent.

With the Delta variant surging across the country (it now accounts for 83 percent of U.S. cases), experts are predicting a third wave of the coronavirus. Here in New York City, Mayor de Blasio has been reluctant to reinstate an indoor mask mandate, saying that he fears such action will deter those still unvaccinated from getting the shot. In a press conference today, the mayor announced that 70 percent of NYC adults have received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine. But with only 13 percent of children aged 12 to 17 vaccinated, is that figure high enough to warrant a return to normalcy now?

5 East 75th Street is a turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts mansion just three doors down from Central Park. Now an eight-unit co-op, it exudes that rare, old-world Upper East Side grandeur. But this one-bedroom unit that’s on the market for $2,985,000 feels more like a Parisian atelier, complete with 13-foot ceilings, original moldings, oversized windows, two wood-burning fireplaces, and detailed hardwood floors. Best of all, there’s a nearly 500-square-foot private terrace.

Take in the sounds of summer, whether it be DJ sets on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library, jazz and classical tunes under the Manhattan Bridge, or silent discos at Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza.
