Tax Equity
Throughout the Envision SoHo-NoHo process, the issue of property taxes on JLWQA buildings was prominent.  Last week, a state Supreme Court judge dismissed a lawsuit challenging the city’s widely reviled system of computing property taxes. Next week, the New York City Commission on Property Tax Reform will hold the first public hearing on its recently released menu of reform proposals on Staten Island. Future hearings in other boroughs will be announced soon.  Habitat covers the whole story.
An absurdist gender-bending farce, One Green Bottle, at LaMama through March 8, artfully illustrates our current selfie society’s relationship with consumerism and modern technology through one night in the life of a disordered family on the road to ruin.  

More Fitness – AARMY

If you’ve got $40 or so to spend on a fitness class, you’re not hurting for options in Manhattan’s tiny NoHo neighborhood. There’s SoulCycle,
of course, or Mile High Run Club if you prefer the treadmill. There’s Barry’s Bootcamp and Bar Method and Work Train Fight. If you want to box, there’s Overthrow Boxing ClubRumble, and Bia Force. If you’d rather bang out some sun salutations, there’s a Yoga Vida. If you simply cannot decide between yoga and boxing, there’s Box and Flow, which combines the two. It might be the greatest concentration of upscale fitness studios in the world,
