The latest from Curbed NY...
1) Manhattan: We found three obscenely-priced apartments, including one at the famed Dakota, that have been sitting on the market for four+ years. Why can't they sell? For starters, ventriloquist dolls should probably not be included in listing photos.
2) Greenwich Village: A beautiful renovated townhouse on Washington Place is also having trouble selling, but the $31.5 million price tag was probably the problem. After six months and no sale, the owners have lowered the ask to $29.9 million.
3) Midtown East: A new luxury skyscraper is finally moving forward on East 57th Street, after six years of starts and stops. Designed by Roger Duffy of Skidmore Owings and Merrill, the 57-story contorted tapering tower will feature 270 high-end homes.
4) Upper East Side: Just before the new year, Frank McCourt?the guy who bankrupt the Los Angeles Dodgers and was forced to sell the franchise for $2 billion?bought himself a $50 million full-floor co-op on Fifth Avenue. If you can't have a pro baseball team, at least you can have insane Manhattan real estate.
