All the latest real estate news from Curbed NY...
1) The Internet: Ever wondered what real estate listings would like if brokers had to be one hundred percent honest all the time? So did we, so we made some fake listings for terrible New York City apartments.
2) Midtown East: Condo tower 432 Park Avenue will, upon completion, be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. It's already pretty tall, as evidenced by these terrifying pictures taken from a construction crane at its current peak.
3) The Sea: The waters surrounding New York City are full of islands, some bigger, some smaller, some creepy, and some picturesque. Here's a map of 34 of the islands that dot the coasts of NYC. Some, like Rikers, you've heard of, while others, like "Big Tom," don't even have any known photographs.
4) Soho: And, in celebrity real estate news, Meg Ryan just bought Hank Azaria's enormous Soho loft, which Azaria, in turn, bought from artist Cindy Sherman. If you're not some kind of celebrity, don't even think about trying to buy this apartment from Meg Ryan.
