Pure Luxury – New York Condos


Residents Demand More Luxury New York Condos and the City Listens
New Yorkers want the luxury and prestige of living in a mansion with the convenience of the city at their doorstep. With luxury New York condos, the people get exactly what they want. NYC is known for being a pedestrian-friendly city, so luxury condo owners can walk to jobs downtown or take the MTA.
As the demand for luxury New York condos increases, new developments of high-end, chic condos, lofts, and hotel-condos continue to pop up around town. Many historical brownstones, …

Stylish Manhattan Retreats

Buying a condo on the Upper East Side?
What amenities are you looking for before you settle into your new condo?
Main residence or a metropolitan second home, everyone seems to be looking for the same things… convenience, class, and couture. Sometimes we want a penthouse with an interior that reminds us of our country homes, and other times we may be looking for a full floor residency that is the complete opposite of our Villa in St.Barts… Whatever the case somewhere in Manhattan is the perfect Condo or Co-op for everyone! …

Wall Street 2 Penthouse Sold for $15 Million

The subprime lending crisis of 2008 changed everyone’s lives; arguably, it will be the greatest financial disaster of our lifetimes. The impact on the housing market, the job market, government solvency, international business sentiment, the stock market, and the financial industry has been greater than a nuclear fallout. So great and so dramatic was the disaster that Oliver Stone effortlessly resurrected his diabolical Gordon Gekko in a reprisal in a sequel to the original Wall Street.
I liked Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, even if it had the eminently annoying Shia …

Tunnel Boring Machine Laid to Rest


The NYC subway and rail system is one of the oldest in the world, but it is still expanding. A new tunnel has just been completed into Grand Central Station that will bring Long Island Railrod (LIRR) lines into the station. Beginning in 2007, this project has been a painstaking process of burrowing into the rock beneath Manhattan with the help of two 200-ton, 22-foot-tall tunnel boring machines.

The machines are so big and the process is so laborious that the machines themselves are extremely worn by the end of the project–so …

The Changing Faces of 113 E. 90th Street


I have waxed lyrical about Upper East Side townhouses before. The area has preserved a number of classical, European-inspired homes from the pre-war and inter-war periods that have been cherished throughout the decades. It’s not unusual for these buildings to change shape and purpose over time, with each permutation being another chapter in the building’s history.
Developments at 113 E. 90th street have been particularly newsworthy, because the property had been the home of the Allan Stone Gallery for the past 16 years. The gallery had been a stunning space full of …

Rental Market Heating up with Summer

It’s hot in the city. Maybe it’s the concrete, but the city tends to be hotter than the countryside around NYC. As city-dwellers struggle to keep cool with their air conditioners and “cooling centers” around the city (basically open fire hydrants for kids to play in), it seems that rental prices are having difficulties cooling as well. Curbed is reporting that the rental market is heating up, with rents up an average of 1.21% since June and vacancies down 2.39%.
This means a one bedroom apartment without a doorman will cost an …

Top 5 NYC Street Foods

When most people think of NYC street foods, they think of hot dogs, pretzels and occasionally nuts. But street foods in New York City have come a long way and some might even say they’ve become an art. You can find just about every food on the street whether it’s cupcakes, Greek food, or crepes.
We’ve compiled a list of the top 5 street foods in NYC and where to get them! These street food staples are delicious, will satisfy you, and keep you going on to your next adventure for …

Plaza Hotel condos sell for $19 million


The Wall Street Journal is reporting that two adjacent condos in the Plaza Hotel were sold for $19 million, which will certainly be yet another boon to the luxury real estate market in NYC, which has experienced quite the surge in recent weeks. WSJ is reporting that the buyer is Barbara Garza, a director of Mexican bottler Coca-Cola Femsa, in a deal that closed last week after a rather short negotiating period.
What’s surprising about the sale is that the previous buyer had purchased the two units just four years ago. In 2007, …
