    One of the world’s most expensive and lucrative real estate markets, New York is known to be the investment breeding ground for millionaires and billionaires from across the globe. While we know that the government is giving tax breaks to these wealthy millionaires and several other perks, simply to lure them to invest in the city.

  • Refereeing the Battle over Manhattan's Neighborhood Divisions By Joseph Lee | September 21, 2012

    SpaHa. MiMa. FiDi. New York’s five boroughs are further divided into hundreds of smaller neighborhoods and “micro-neighborhoods,” each with its own unique personality, and more recently, nickname. In response to many popular neighborhoods with abbreviated names referencing their location (Tribeca, Soho, etc), it seems as though every block in Manhattan wants its own nickname and the associations that come with it. But who decides where these micro-neighborhoods start and stop?

  • The Mystery of The Galleria's Rooftop Spaceship By Yuan Feng | August 15, 2012

    We’ve previously mentioned how NYC is constructing gardens on their roofs in a bizarre but ultimately beneficial movement for the city. But now, Manhattan has a rooftop structure that beats out even the strangest of urban rooftop gardens. At 117 East 57th Street exists a puzzling structure of glass and stacked houses that resembles a sort of greenhouse, though certainly the greenhouse of the future. Located 55 stories up off the ground, the structure is a series of connected glass houses and rooms that absolutely towers over Midtown East. And oddly enough, yes, this is actually an apartment.

  • The State of NYC's Economy Is Better Than You Think By Daniel Muhlenberg | March 15, 2012

    Judging by a couple of new reports, New York City’s economy may be the best it’s been in a long, long time. How good is it? According to the Department of Labor, the city’s economy grew nearly twice as fast in 2011 as previously estimated – they revised their numbers and found that the city added 85,300 new jobs rather than their original estimate of 44,800. That momentum carried into January, where the private sector in the city added 31,600 more jobs – including 9,300 jobs in professional and business services - according to data analysis by the real estate services firm Eastern Consolidated. In case you’re wondering, that’s the largest one-month gain for jobs in New York City since 1990. In terms of Manhattan apartment sales, this news is all the more reason to believe that the market will continue to recover.

  • Despite Low Profile, New UWS Condo Sets the Pace By Daniel Muhlenberg | March 14, 2012

    Even though condo sales on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Upper East Side have lost steam recently - downtown lofts, condos, and penthouses are far outshining them - one luxury apartment building is defying these trends with steady sales and rising prices. The Laureate, located at 2150 Broadway on the corner of West 76th Street, has been selling luxury condos and penthouses at a steady clip for some time now, and it might be due in part to the fact that its owner, Shlomi Reuveni, refuses to reveal the identity or nationality of its buyers. This anonymity and relatively out-of-the-way location (i.e. not downtown) have attracted a steady stream of affluent clientele, although our guess is as good as yours as to who they are.
