Art Rules by Bill Cunningham – The New York Times

Do you love art and people watching? Before it’s gone schedule a couple hours Sunday, March 6th to make your way to The Art Show along with several of the other shows happening (PULSE Contemporary Art Show in Chelsea on 18th Street).

While many lament that the art scene and artists have disappeared from New York (high rents and gentrification), I love these art fairs and the Thursday night Chelsea Art District openings as much for the art as the fantastic people watching! It’s also a great reminder that art and creativity is a huge part what makes New York amazing.

If you are thinking of buying art, choose wisely and with your heart. Art makes a home come alive. I find that when staging our client’s homes, significant art and warm accessories truly add the personality to a home.

Fox Business Asks Jonathan Miller, Are There Too Many Luxury Apartments in Manhattan?

Last month, Fox Business’ Deirdre Bolton interviewed Manhattan’s #1 go to person for clear and unfiltered real estate data, Jonathan Miller, President and CEO of Miller Samuel, Inc. a top appraisal and consulting firm. The questions on everyone’s lips today: Are developers building too many luxury homes and super-luxury condominiums in New York? Is there enough demand to meet the supply, and why have we not seen any significant new construction that serves the $3,000,000 or under market in Manhattan for years?

Jonathan does a fantastic job of answering these questions in this video. For a high net worth client considering a new development I recently completed a study of same unit re-sales in some of Manhattan’s top buildings built since 2006. Which buildings saw huge equity growth and which saw little, surprised me. I will share more on that in a future post.
