manhattan: Manhattan Is For the Birds… (Dogs And Cats Too) - 01/16/19 12:38 PM

Strict no pet policies in some new condos, a lack of nearby pet-friendly amenities, and hostile neighbors can make moving into a new home with Fido a tricky feat. For those who seek the best of both worlds, luxury real estate in Manhattan and the freedom to have pets, it is good to know that there is help out there.

manhattan: Album Covers That Were Shot In New York City - 11/23/18 12:25 PM
An artist has uncovered the location of some of the most iconic album art in the last sixty years. Bob Egan, also a New York commercial realtor, has used his cross-city know-how to find the exact addresses of the cover shoots for bands such as Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and The Who.

manhattan: Is the New US Tax Law Affecting NYC Condo Sales? - 05/08/18 05:41 PM
The new US tax law implemented on January 1, 2018 has created significant background noise in the media. If you look at the fine print, however, the law will be a boon to many corporations and real estate investors, including foreign buyers.
