    While it’s not news that New York City’s relatively cheap real estate prices are enticing a plethora of foreign buyers to the city, it is not very often that we get a look at just how this process works: how they become interested, why they go where they do and, perhaps most importantly, who oversees these deals.

  • From Listings to Lift Off - Real Estate Scores High on Technology By Shwetha Ravishankar | September 27, 2013

    It was eons ago when our parents would scramble through listings in the Sunday newspaper, or look at the neighborhood “Open House” sign and know of properties on the market. If the listing met their requirement of neighborhood, square footage, etc (which often times could be misleading), they drove over to look at the property, which clearly made the process rather tedious.

  • The Allure of New York City’s Building Stoops By Aby Thomas | September 10, 2012

    New York City is a walkers’ city: we see the city best when we traverse through its maze of streets and avenues on foot.

Behold, then, the humble stoop—a row of steps in front of a low-rise Manhattan apartment building or townhouse, perfect as a seat to ease your aching muscles.

    For parents on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, waitlists for public schools are a fact of life. While some have responded by enrolling their kids in private schools or moving to the suburbs, many more have dealt with this problem by simply holding out and hoping for the best. After all, the city built P.S. 452 last year to handle overflow from P.S. 87, which reduced the waitlist for the latter from more than 100 students a few years ago to just 30 as of April 7th. Nonetheless, with a glut of new construction projects on the way, the city is woefully underprepared to handle this population influx. There simply aren’t enough Manhattan schools in this neighborhood, and in the long run this could hurt the property values and popularity of luxury apartments and condos in the area.
