Say goodbye to the next 15 minutes of your life. The NY Condo Blog has put together a 1-100 ranking of Manhattan condo buildings, based on location, layouts, interior finishes, amenities, and that most tempting of mistresses, investment potential. As if the recent lukewarm reaction to flips in The Plaza weren't indication enough that the feud is over, the Zeckendorfs' record-setting 15 Central Park West is #1 here, too. The Plaza is #2, and in a bit of a shocker (only because it's been quiet for so long), Ian Schrager's 50 Gramercy Park North takes the bronze. The much-discussed
Stanhope Hotel 995 Fifth Avenue is fourth, maybe because rebrandings and press mentions as a "hobbit hole" aren't factored in. Stanhope (sorry, we just can't stop) developer Extell has four projects in the Top 10. All the favorites are there, including BLUE (#87), YVES (#67) and One Ten 3rd (#44). Folks, this is a fun one.
