The latest froth and bubble from the Manhattan apartment market: Halstead released a new market report showing that two-bedroom apartments below 14th Street now top $1 million
on average ($1.063 million, to be exact, though we genuflect on the problems with such stats; UPDATE: prices cited are medians; good onya, Braden). Not content to let her competitor get the better of the hype, Douglas Elliman bigshot broker Dolly Lenz kicks it up a notch in an interview with the Post's Braden Keil:
"I'm sure those prices will rise even higher in their next report," said Dolly Lenz of rival firm, Douglas Elliman. "There are plenty of new developments along the river and on Wall Street that haven't even closed yet. None of those have been reflected as yet."If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: for the love of all that is holy, buy now!!!
