You won’t have to think too hard about where Thanksgiving will be hosted this year because the 70 Charlton residences in SoHo are designed for celebrations. But instead of spending hours cooking or paying for a caterer, have your friends and family over for a potluck-inspired holiday. Ask them to bring their favorite dish or dishes. Without the stress of pulling together a whole Thanksgiving meal, you can devote more time to entertaining with panache by creating a decor and atmosphere that will get everyone in the festive spirit.
Construction is complete at 70 Charlton, and photoblog Field Condition recently posted a set of beautiful photos showing off the new building’s gorgeous interior and exterior. These West SoHo homes are clad in rich red brick with steel accents, a design that takes inspiration from the neighborhood’s industrial past. Inside, 70 Charlton’s two towers are connected by a sparkling marble-floored lobby and landscaped terrace. The building’s residences feature hardwood flooring throughout, as well as sleek custom cabinetry in the kitchens and tasteful stonework and tile in the baths. Oversized casement windows bathe the interiors in natural light and provide views of the historic SoHo surroundings.
The first residential building to rise in Hudson Square after the neighborhood’s 2013 rezoning is now its most enviable address. The Extell-developed Tribeca homes at 70 Charlton effortlessly combine form and function, packing ample style into each space. With oversized windows, open kitchen and living spaces, and a prime downtown location, 70 Charlton’s residences have even managed to lure some of Extell’s top talent. Brooks McDaniel, Extell’s Vice President of Architecture, says the location, amenities, and charm made it the ideal fit for him. “The building is perfectly located at the intersection of Soho, Tribeca, and the West Village, so I have immediate access to everything in downtown Manhattan and really convenient transportation options that make getting anywhere in the city easy,” says McDaniel. “Within a few years, I think Hudson Square will feel like an extension of Soho and the West Village, but with its own unique character.”
Extell Development Company has teamed up with the renowned architects at Beyer Blinder Belle and the celebrated design firm Workshop/APD to bring luxury living to SoHo. The result is 70 Charlton, the double-winged, 22-story building where 33 of the 122 luxury SoHo residences are available and moving fast. 70 Charlton features a red-brick and steel facade, which was inspired by the neighborhood’s historical warehouses and printers, and ensconced between the two wings is an enclosed garden where residents can lounge and enjoy the green wall. The residences are beautiful modern homes with oak flooring, upscale Miele appliances, and large windows with multiple exposures revealing views of the Hudson River and skyline.
What began as a humble trick-or-treating procession through Greenwich Village in the mid-70s has grown into the largest Halloween parade in the country—and a truly seminal event in the cultural evolution of New York City. This year on Halloween, over 80,000 costumed participants and 2 million spectators will have their eyes on Sixth Avenue. And 52 live bands will be playing at the parade, as performers and participants stream down Sixth Avenue amid 16 floats. It’s the most spirited night of the year; the eclectic artistry of the city is on full display. Artists who spend much of the rest of the year relegated to the margins are the stars of the evening, infusing the West Village with an infectious vibrancy.
