Welcome to Manc-hattan: how the city sold its soul for luxury skyscrapers | Art and design | The Guardian
Simpson says the centre “used to be a ghetto for people who couldn’t get out”, but now it’s a desirable place – and it needs the swanky flats to match. “Part of the problem,” he adds, “is that there aren’t enough expensive homes in the city.”

House Share and Co-Living website for over 40s
We founded Cohabitas in 2016 after a casual conversation about our parents and how lonely they were, having each lost their partner.
We realised that life can be challenging for people living alone and that having someone else around the house would not only be better for them but also for us, their main carers while they remain healthy and living independently. Wouldn't it be good if there was someone there to say good morning to, occasionally walk to the shops with or to share a comment about the news of the day?

NYC retail vacancies doubled over 10 years | Retail Dive
The amount of empty retail space in New York City has doubled in the last decade or so​, as the citywide vacancy rate soared by almost 50%, according to a comprehensive report released Wednesday by City Comptroller Scott Stringer. The vacancy rate rose from 4% in 2007 to a high of 5.8% in 2017, according to the report. That year, there was an extra 5.2 million square feet of vacant retail space compared to 2007, rising to over 11 million square feet.

The sweeping analysis of 24 neighborhoods shows that vacancy has expanded across all five boroughs, according to the report. While certain swaths of Manhattan have some of the worst vacancies, the highest vacancy neighborhoods aren’t found there, with Staten Island and Queens particularly hard hit, and some neighborhoods suffering vacancy rates of up to 25%.
