Comment of the Day

"While in the Met Saturday, I thought to myself: Is The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living actually art or just a 22-ton fishtank (especially compared to Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise or even the Chuck Close paintings). But getting back on topic, sort of; How should we look at appreciation--real or crazed imaginations from unrealistic sellers--of Manhattan real estate? Obviously, I can't see how a relatively no-name no high-provenance townhouse can appreciate 400% in three years. Can't imagine buying a 4 million dollar new 'luxury' condo three years ago and expecting $20 million for it now." [Bankrupt Art Dealer on How to Seel $25M Townhouses]
