The Observer checks in with some "Lehman Babies," young aspiring real estate go-getters who have been hit hard by the downtown. Despite hardships, the fire still burns: "Given her qualifications, naked intellect and unabashed love of real estate, Ms. Mitchell is something of a wasted resource. She earned a degree in city planning from Cornell in 2006 and a master’s in real estate development from Columbia in 2007, and along with a number of internships, she worked 18 months as an associate project manager at a boutique real estate firm, from which she was ultimately let go...Sometimes she gets lunch with real estate friends who work nearby, and they take her on tours of their ongoing projects. Afternoons like that make her 'sad.' 'It makes me want to be out there so badly,' she said." [NYO]
