Decoded: The 'Trendiest' of New York City Apartment Listings

New, 14 comments

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where we take a word or a turn of phrase that seems to show up in an unreasonable number of listings and decipher its true meaning. If you have any ideas for us, send them to the tipline. Today's word: Trendy.

Everybody knows that given a few typewriters and unlimited time, a group of monkeys could recreate the entire works of Shakespeare. What they don't know is that the same group of monkeys would need a lot less time to describe every New York City neighborhood as either "trendy" or "vibrant." (Failing that, they would just type "close to trendy restaurants" over and over again.)

There's a pretty decent chance that this paragraph was constructed using the Brokerbabble Magic Eight Ball.

Chelsea: definitely up there.
