Spurred on by the Wall Street Journal and others who suggest that the Manhattan market may be "flattening out," we went looking for deals. We searched StreetEasy for properties with weekend open houses that have also undergone price cuts of 10% or more. Surprisingly, many were bunched on the Upper West Side (not what you would call a marginal neighborhood), and here are some highlights.
