nyc: 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)

nyc: 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)

nyc: One of New York's Last Remaining Skybridges Is Falling Down - 08/11/14 07:27 AM

[Photo via Scouting NY.]
The rumors were true: the skybridge connecting the two parts of theMadison Square Park-facing Toy Building is almost surely set fordemolition. Scouting NY has photos of the traverse, which spans 24th Street just west of Fifth Avenue, showing that it is now shrouded in telltale scaffolding. The Witkoff Group is turning the Toy Building's southern half into luxury condos, and that pretty much means there's no need to go back and forth between the two buildings aboveground. Scout, a.k.a. film-location guru Nick Carr, uses the premature eulogy as a chance to dive into a photo tour of the city's few extant skybridges, which include the one at the old … (3 comments)

nyc: 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.
For more info, go have a look at SmartAsset’s article on the diverse rental economies in four major cities – New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles, and at Moven’s infographic showing some of the key factors you should … (2 comments)

nyc: NYC doormen, building service people don’t expect big holiday tips or get them either - 12/16/10 02:42 AM
 
More than half of city apartment dwellers plan to dish out $500 or less in holiday tips in their buildings, according to an online survey.
That may sound like plenty of cheer, but fully staffed properties have 20 to 30 workers, all of whom count on the extra cash to brighten their holiday seasons.
"People tip the staff they see," said Teri Rogers, of BrickUnderground.com, which did the unscientific poll. "The people who mostly get burned are porters and handymen. They're not as visible to residents, but they do the hardest work."
Doormen on late-night shifts will likely wind up … (0 comments)
