If you're not George W. Bush's niece, you probably haven't heard yet about all the real estate goings on at Curbed NY...
1) Greenwich Village: When photographer Annie Leibovitz's three-townhouse compound sold for $28.5 million last month the buyers were hidden behind an LLC. But now those buyers have emerged as Ralph Lauren's son David and his wife, George W. Bush's niece Lauren Bush Lauren (yes, that's her real name).
2) Midtown West: A development site near Hudson Yards is being marketed as the "potential future tallest tower in the U.S." The brokerage even commissioned renderings for a purely hypothetical supertower that could, making use of its bountiful air rights, rise to a height of 108 stories and 1,800 feet. Sure, why not.
3) Midtown: Select units in the super expensive One57 have finally hit the open market with live online listings, and the pickings are pricey. Units that have appeared on the internet this week range from a $6 million 39th-floor 1BR to a $32.75 million 53rd-floor 5BR.
4) All Over: For Sale By Owner listings are often not the greatest idea. But, on the brights, they are also often hilarious, and, less often, pretty impressive. Here are the ten best FSBO listings in New York City.
