Let the end-of-year wrap-ups begin! The Post's Max Gross is first on deck, with a broad look at the 2006 housing market ("it wasn't a boom and it wasn't a bust"), and where it's headed in 2007 (more of the same?). There's all sorts of quotes from the pros dealing with cautious buyers and overpricing and stable markets and all that, but as usual, we're digging on the tidbits regarding specific buildings and neighborhoods. The Zeckendorfs' 15 Central Park West (right) is the obvious choice as the King of All New Condos for 2006, with $1.6 billion in sales, a stable of celebrity buyers and a classic pre-war design you can't really be mad at. Other nuggets include Related claiming their Veneto and Caledonia are both 75% sold out, and the tapping of "Columbus Circle West" and the "Wall Street corridor" as the nabes to watch in 2007. 2k7: Can you feel the excitement?!
