manhattan: Stubborn sellers are putting a major damper on the Manhattan sales market - 10/04/18 07:02 AM
Number of deals declined for the fourth straight quarter 
Sellers who can’t part with their sky-high expectations keep slowing down apartment sales in Manhattan.
The number of residential sales in the third quarter dipped 11.3 percent over the same period last year, according to Douglas Elliman's latest market report. That’s the fourth consecutive quarter of declines.
“There’s movement, but I do think it’s going to take time,” said Steven James, president and CEO of Douglas Elliman’s New York City brokerage. “It’s predicated on sellers getting the message that they need to price realistically.”
As sales decline, prices keep falling too. The median sales price slid 4.5 … (0 comments)

manhattan: The Most Expensive Manhattan Neighborhood for Renters Is... - 10/16/14 12:27 AM

Rental listings site Zumper is back with a new report (warning: PDF!) that details just how much one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms cost in various New York City neighborhoods. And the winner (Or is it the loser? If you're paying a lot to live there?) is... the Flatiron District, with a 1BR median rent of $4,200/month. It is closely trailed by Tribeca ($4,195), Dumbo ($4,040), NoMad ($3,795), and Chelsea ($3,793).

For more affordable rentals, eyeball the bottom of the list, where areas like Forest Hills, Brighton Beach, Rego Park, Central Harlem, and Bed-Stuy reside.

When you look at Zumper's figures for the rest of the country, just take … (0 comments)

manhattan: 40 Secret Gardens, Parks And Green Spaces Hidden Across NYC - 08/15/14 03:38 AM

Now that summer is really and truly upon us, we thought we'd explore some of the lesser-known green gems tucked away in far-flung corners of New York City. When everyone you know is spreading an old sheet out on a grassy knoll in Prospect Park or taking their cousin for a stroll along the High Line, a storehouse of under-the-radar spots becomes crucial. From unexpected oases in the atria of office buildings (Ford Foundation, we're looking at you) to 17th-century farmhouses that still keep piglets in a pen and crops a-growin' (oh hey, Queens County Farm Museum), there's a destination for … (3 comments)

Even in a city with six daily newspapers, there's far more news than any one publication could cover, especially when it comes to the nitty gritty stuff that happens at the hyper-local level--new bars, new developments, the closing of beloved corner businesses, updates on your subway stop of choice, and everything in between. 
Filling the gap is a vibrant ecosystem of neighborhood blogs that cater to new transplants and life-long residents alike, consistently breaking stories the bigger guys get to months after the fact, and doing it from the perspective of people with the same day-to-day concerns as you.
Admittedly, some parts of the city are more … (0 comments)

The family of three living on the Upper West Side stopped paying rent when they discovered their apartment was riddled with mold, causing the wife to fall seriously ill. When the landlord wouldn’t address the issue, they decided to move out, and fast, winding up in a hotel. 
But their troubles didn't stop there. They ended up on the so-called tenant blacklist and subsequently had major problems securing future apartments.
These blacklists are not a new phenomenon, but New Yorkers have recently been paying more attention to them, and the problems associated with winding up on a list. (See, for example, … (0 comments)

manhattan: Eight out of 10 Manhattan homes bought all with cash - 05/16/14 12:34 AM

In Manhattan real estate, cash is king.
While about four out of every 10 homes sold in the U.S. in the first quarter were paid for entirely in cash, Manhattan’s rate is much higher.
In fact, eight out of 10 homes in the borough were bought with cash during the last three quarters, according to RealtyTrac.
Darren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac, told the Washington Post that the high rate of cash transactions might be fueled by foreign investors who are buying property in New York. Chinese buyers, especially, are increasingly active in the market.
Tight credit, along with a low supply … (0 comments)

manhattan: Where To Find Cheaper Rentals in Five Expensive NYC 'Hoods - 05/15/14 10:07 AM

The folks over at rental listings site Zumper have parsed current listing data for five New York City neighborhoods in an effort to suss out their "cold pockets"—that is, little swaths in which the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment is significantly lower than the same figure for the area as a whole. Curbed has explored some parts of town already, so onto another five. Above, in Hell's Kitchen, find cheaper one-bedrooms between Ninth and Eleventh Avenues, south of 51st Street. The 1BRmedian there is $2,600, compared with $3,200 for the entire neighborhood.

In Brooklyn Heights, renters looking to save a few (hundred) bucks should aim south of Pineapple Street. There one-bedrooms like … (2 comments)

manhattan: Looking at the Hidden Costs of Living in New York - 03/19/14 01:40 AM
Today’s article is about some of the hidden costs of living in New York. We’ve looked at three key expenses – food, travel and entertainment – to see how they vary across the boroughs. While the numbers aren’t the same everywhere (New York is expensive!), the concept is; when you’re considering where to live, there are lots of variables that aren’t included in the rent.

manhattan: An Introduction to New York's Short Term Rental Laws - 10/10/13 01:35 AM
The world of short term rentals is a weird, tricky thing—especially in a city as big as New York. There are dozens of websites that allow people to freely list their homes/apartments/condos, plusadditional sites that help people make the best listing possible. Thesesites have mostly operated in their own realm, but in recent months, we've seen many of them get direct support from the city in order to help house people who were displaced by Hurricane Sandy. It's obvious that short term renting is a growing industry that shows no signs of slowing down, but the fact of the matter is that most of these rentals are illegal.
