NY Good Questions: How Can I Remove This Radiator?

Dear AT,

How do I remove a radiator for good?

I live in an early 1900's condo building and this narrow bedroom doesn't need the radiator.

It already goes bang in the night, will capping it off making it bang even louder in the winter months?

Thanks! Tatiana
