Author Gary Shteyngart Blurbs Real Estate Company on Yelp

New, 5 comments

LOWER EAST SIDE—Normally, the only circumstances in which we would feature a Yelp review for a building, realty firm, moving company, etc. would involve some sort of rant or horror story. In this case, however, the review is purely positive. Author Gary Shteyngart (Super Sad True Love Story, Absurdistan), who used to own a 1BR in Co-op Village, took to Yelp to leave a glowing blurb for Loho Realty, calling them "the Tolstoy of Lower East Side realties. Poignant, honest and full of delight in language." [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

EAST VILLAGE—82-unit condo building/East Village ruiner The Jefferson is completely sold out. All 82 units are in contract, according to The Real Deal. Apparently their jerk-y ads reading, "This is not your typical East Village apartment. Everything works!" were pretty effective. [TRD, via EV Grieve; previously]
