As Hurricane Sandy battered Manhattan I nervously watched from my 12th floor West Village Co-op while simultaneously monitoring Facebook posts by friends and acquaintances. On the 42nd floor of a No-Mad condo a friend posted a hair-raising 10-sec video of his overhead lamps swinging wildly from right to left as though he was on a ship in a storm. “What are you still doing there?” a concerned friend asked.  Where would he go, I thought?

What is Real Estate?

What is Real Estate?

What is real estate? As I leave my office late tonight, I look at the list on my desk-wall of clients who want to buy or sell. They aren’t numbers to me. They are people: fathers, mothers, children, partners. All with a dream of owning a home or having more space. A place to create memories, to celebrate anniversaries, to laugh, to cry, to perhaps disagree and then come back together. To watch teeth fall and then the 1st sideburns grow.

This is why I do what I do. To help people make their dreams come true, as smoothly as I can. Nothing feels better than to seem them smile on closing day…and five years later. – By Tony Sargent

NY Art & Real Estate: LA Street-Artist Retna Paints Mural at Bowery Graffiti Wall

NY Art & Real Estate: LA Street-Artist Retna Paints Mural at Bowery Graffiti Wall Bowery Graffiti Wall - Photo by Tony Sargent (C) 2012

In New York, at the corner of Bowery and East Houston, the infamous Bowery Graffiti Wall (where Keith Haring put up the first mural 30 years ago) is currently host to LA based street-artist Retna. His mural, along the four story south-facing wall, served today as the perfect backdrop for this photographer and his model. Nowhere in Manhattan real estate can you feel the intimate mix of luxury condominiums along side such a vibrant culture of music, design and art, as here at the crossroads of Noho, Nolita, the East Village and the Lower East Side.

From the New Museum and The Bowery Hotel on the Bowery to the nearby Elizabeth and Mott Streets, you’ll find a delightful mix of boutique fashion and furniture retailers like Area I.D. and restaurants such as Emporio. The eclectic blocks are punctuated by some other infamous graffiti walls as is found at Jay Meisel’s 190 Bowery. Just off the Bowery on Bond Street you’ll find Ian Schrager’s super-luxury condo, 40 Bond designed by Herzog & De Meuron.

Expect to see more photos and posts on this dynamic area in the coming weeks.
