“Classes, Tools & Community, Located in the Village, New York City.” Yes, that pretty-much sums up Fab Lab. This West Village workshop provides the latest in “digital fabrication” capabilities “and some traditional stuff, too,” along with a series of events and classes in a communal setting. The brainchild of the owners of the similarly named Fat Cat, a local jazz bar and pool hall that is just downstairs, the Fab Lab brings together a modernist approach to shared work spaces and the communal spirit of creativity that surrounds the Village ethos’s. It’s a wondrous educational venture and community project in a seemingly unlikely space. Conveniently situated near 70 Charlton’s SoHo condos and just a short jaunt north of Houston, the Fab Lab is an indispensable and truly fabulous makerspace where you can free your inventive self and liberate your inner artist.
Manhattan’s Hudson Square is the most sought-after neighborhood buyers have never heard of.

The 22-story luxury building from Extell, the developers behind 555TEN and One Manhattan Square in NYC, will certainly make Hudson Square known to New Yorkers, adding an assemblage of elegant residences to the neighborhood, each featuring interiors from Workshop/APD. Amenities include an attended lobby, landscaped courtyard, state-of-the-art fitness center, and indoor/outdoor lounge space. “Names catch on organically,” says Anna Zarro, senior vice president and director of sales and leasing at Extell. “People identify with a hyper-local affection to their neighborhood, and that’s how a label sticks.”

Designer Patricia Fisher has lent her inimitable style to one of the Tribeca homes for sale at Extell’s 70 Charlton, turning it into a luxe modern retreat. The three-bedroom, three-bath, 1,631-square-foot residence is drenched in natural light, thanks to oversized windows that highlight the neutral palette. From the gray and white open kitchen and the dining space with its gray wash oak flooring to the spacious master suite with plush, silver-hued textiles, gray-and-white sheer curtains, and silver-accented hardware and lighting, each space is every bit as serene as it is stylish. “When I approached the design for this well-appointed three-bedroom residence, I envisioned a young family with children who were in search of a bigger, more gracious space while also wanting their home to emulate a chic, downtown vibe," says Fisher.
Hudson Square is in the midst of transforming from the home of the printing industry to a chic residential neighborhood, and the new 22-story luxury residences at 70 Charlton represent an opportunity for New Yorkers to get in on the ground floor in this exciting area. These 122 NYC residences are designed in an art-deco style that fits in with the building’s surroundings, and they come at prices lower than those normally found in iconic Downtown neighborhoods. Residents will have access to convenient subway lines, a burgeoning restaurant scene, recently widened and tree-lined sidewalks, and, soon, a 19,000-square-foot Trader Joe’s.
