Micromarkets of Steel

The Times took a look at how some apartments are surviving the looming economic troubles by being as special as snowflakes in their own right. That is to say, unique apartments that have characteristics above and beyond the competition are the ones that are selling for 2007-and up prices. Particularly in prime downtown neighborhoods, midtown towers with killer views and Brooklyn Heights/Park Slope is where you're going to find these units. Some examples thrown in there are 72 Mercer Street, the Butterfield House, City Spire and pretty much all of West Chelsea around the High Line. And the word for these recession-proof areas? Micromarkets, duh! [NYT]
