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.

Grand Central Grandeur – Its Secret Rooms and History

To the thousands of New Yorkers and visitors who pass through Manhattan’s Grand Central Station, there is always a moment of silence and awe when they see the grandeur of it. For those who know that once it was doomed to be destroyed and even after it was saved, the walls and ceiling were dingy, the windows obscured by black paint from World War II, to see it today is breathtaking.

This short video by Above New York takes you into Grand Central’s secret rooms and is a reminder that behind the scenes in our great city, thousands toil unseen to make New York the wonderful home that it is for millions and the dream of many more.

New York Fridays: The People & Places That “Keep It Real”

While we all love luxury real estate and New York’s high-end stores and restaurants and many of us are fortunate to experience this luxury level of living, each day as we wake, go to work, have fun, watch a show, there are 8 million other people in this great city of ours who are “Keeping it Real”.  Like all of us, they go about their days doing their job and making a difference.

Every week I have the fortune of going in and out of luxury homes and buildings. In between I may be in my Uber or a Taxi or if traffic is a bear, the subway. When I pause to look up from my phone, there are people everywhere – from all nations and cultures around me.

It is the people of New York which makes New York so amazing and gives it its unique energy and style.  People come here many times for a new life. With hope from all walks of life and all nations they come here – we come here to make a difference. It’s what inspires me each day – if I can make a positive difference in my clients’ lives and help them realize their real estate dreams, then I can feel I was able to give them the gift of moving into the next chapter of their lives smoothly, and with confidence.

New York inspires me every day to be better, to grow and to give back. So here’s my debut of New York Fridays – A tribute to this great city, its people and places. It may be a moment to share a photo, a video, a story of someone I’ve met that week.  Or perhaps you may want to share your photo or story? This 2 minute video clip made me smile with joy – for it reminded me of how I fell in love with New York in 1985, on a visit from college to the city for an interview. As I walked out of Grand Central the buzz of the city and its people caught me by surprise. I never  looked back. I hope this video will make you smile and fill your Friday with joy. It has mine.

Why Manhattan Real Estate Keeps Attracting International & Domestic Buyers Alike

International and local buyers keep falling in love with Manhattan real estate. Downtown, buyers are snapping up luxury new developments in Tribeca (56 Leonard), Chelsea (Walker Tower), West Chelsea and the West Village (150 Charles) and its expected that several new Hudson Yards projects including 520 West 28th to be designed by famed starchitect Zaha Hadid for Related will sell out quickly.

Manhattan real estate prices on average double every ten years drawing investors, however, I believe part of the magic of New York is that moment when one sees the lights of the city or a view one never had seen before. The city continues to grow and improve adding to its live-able quality and attracting buyers from all demographics and nationalities. Of course many old-timers lament the city’s change, but change is a constant in New York.

Cameron Michael has captured the essence of Manhattan in this Manhattan Project time-lapse video, which I wanted to share with you. Fall in love again…
