Remember February 2000? It was the month Internet stocks went from "massively overpriced" to "ludicrously overpriced." The tech stock market, which everyone figured had leveled off after a massive run-up, shot further into the stratosphere. Clearly, all the old rules were off?and so they were, at least until March, when the dot-com market finally cracked and the Nasdaq's charming slide from 4000 to 1250 began.
Why do we mention this today? Oh, no reason. In other news, a Curbed reader emails, "Corcoran opened a new building on 23rd between Park and Lex last Wednesday and sold 42 apartments in two days. I have never seen such a commotion about a new building like this one. I think you could get some funny stories from people who were at/trying to go the sales office."
