1) $1000 Per Square Foot in the LIC (301 comments)
"LIC believer here. Alhtough, this paricular unit is a bit pricey, there are plenty of good opportunities in LIC. The center of town is growing by the minute as quality businesses move in and the location is 2nd to none. That includes most parts of Manhattan."
2) Market Heat: Bidding War on Bethune (103 comments)
"Gotta agree...this is pretty much the perfect layout. The aesthetics are great, and the location is great. ..the monthlies and taxes are relatively low and it's a CONDO. What more could you want? It was definitely underpriced for the market, and doesn't surprise me this went for over $2M. Do NOT read this sale as the sign of an impending period of irrational exuberance."
3) PriceSpotter Big Reveal: Brick House in Alphabet City (60 comments)
"I dunno, I always try to imagine what kind of buyer a listing would attract. (since this is just a game) In this case, I'm flummoxed. It's so far east of transportation, and it's a 4th floor walkup, but yet the sq footage isn't enough to overcome those huge drawbacks."
4) Can Luxury Condos Save Murray Hill (33 comments)
"I'm 34, married, with a newborn son. I live in Murray Hill. I walk to work in Midtown. I can walk to Grand Central, Times Square, Madison Square Park, and Bryant Park. I jog along the East River. I can take a 5-10 minute cab ride to the Village, SoHo, Tribeca, or Hell's Kitchen - or walk if I really want to. You're right - my neighborhood unequivocally sucks."
