Entergy to Close James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Central New York
Entergy Corp. announced Nov. 2 that it will close the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Scriba, N.Y., in late 2016 or early 2017. The company said its decision to close the plant is based on the continued deteriorating economics of the facility. The key drivers cited by the company include significantly reduced plant revenues due to low natural gas prices, a poor market design that fails to properly compensate nuclear generators like FitzPatrick for their benefits, as well as high operational costs.

Manhattan Rents Grow at Fastest Pace in Seven Years
The cost of renting in Manhattan soared to an all-time high in the third quarter, growing at the fastest pace in years. Manhattan median asking rents jumped 9.5% year-over-year in September to $3,339. This is a record high for Manhattan rents and the largest annual increase since StreetEasy began collecting data in 2008, according to the Q3 2015 StreetEasy Market Reports for Manhattan and Brooklyn. Manhattan’s rapid rent growth was fueled by a steep increase in asking rent for 1-bedroom units, which grew 10.7% year-over-year to $3,271 in September. Asking rents among studios and 2-bedrooms increased 6.5% and 9.7%, respectively, while rents for units with 3-bedrooms or more declined 3.6%. Rents also climbed in Brooklyn, though at a much more modest pace. The monthly median asking rent grew 1.5% from last year to $2,600 in September.
