Most quarterly market reports and maps divide the market up by borough. A new map from Crain's offers a more well-rounded picture of the market by including third-quarter sales from all boroughs (click through for a more interactive version of the map). The priciest neighborhoods are, of course, the usual culprits along Central Park and down the west side of Manhattan. Overall, 2013 looks like it will be the real estate market's strongest year since 2007, according to data from the Real Estate Board of New York.
There were 14,073 sales in the third quarter, an increase of 28 percent from the third quarter of 2012. The median price rose 4 percent to $515,000 across all NYC boroughs. The largest increases in median prices came in Brownsville, Ocean Hill, and Dyker Heights in Brooklyn and on the fast-changing Roosevelt Island.
