The latest New York news from Curbed NY...
1) Upper East Side: It seems like every day a new record is being set for something in New York City real estate. And while the idea may be getting tired, this record is worth mentioning. The city has a new most expensive rental, and its a full-floor of The Pierre hotel that's asking an astronomical $500,000 a month. Paying rent is like buying a small apartment in the boroughs every month. But not.
2) Coney Island: It's been two years since superstorm Sandy rocked the city, but its impacts are still widely felt today, especially in the far reaches of Brooklyn where neighborhoods are still "waiting" to be recovered. More here.
3) Red Hook: Although the neighborhood is close to other brownstone Brooklyn darlings Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens, the neighborhood that's rather distant from the nearest subway hasn't caught up. Italian developer Est4te Four is trying to change that, first with their luxury rentals in the neighborhood (which are 70-percent sold after just one month), and now with a massive 1.1 million-square-foot creative industries hub on the neighborhood's waterfront.
