I Love New York – A Year In New York – Video by Andrew Clancy

Over 26 years ago I packed two bags and moved to New York from Switzerland. Sometimes when you have been somewhere for so long, you learn to see what you see and forget what you saw when you first set foot in the city of your dreams. That’s what is so beautiful about this video by Andrew Clancy. As a newcomer to Manhattan, he shot his vision of our great city. Read more…

Home Builder Confidence Reaches Highest Point Since 2006 – CNBC Video

As I traveled to the West Coast in August and October to speak on several real estate and mortgage broker panels, the energy in the rooms was decidedly up-beat compared to only two years ago. Like in Manhattan, real estate brokers nationwide were speaking about the shortage of housing inventory and the reduction in their Short Sale and Foreclosure business. With both investors and first time home buyers taking advantage of low mortgage rates, little new construction in the last five years has lead to there not being enough desirable properties in prime markets. This video from CNBC shares more on this subject.

Design Find: The Architect & The Painter – Charles and Ray Eames Documentary by PBS

We have all heard of the “Eames Chair” and know of his designs.  Eames impacted mid-century design in many ways. I love all those who challenge conventional thinking, be it in design, fashion, the arts or architecture – or simply life. It is those who think outside of the box who move make the unimagined real. Think Steve Jobs of Apple.  I found a link to this video trailer. Can’t wait to buy the Charles & Ray Eames documentary “The Architect & The Painter” DVD from PBS and watch it.  Here is the trailer:

Watch Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter on PBS. See more from American Masters.

The New Whitney Downtown – First Video Peek of What It Will Look Like!

Founded by New York sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, The Whitney originally opened its doors in 1931 in Greenwich Village. The first museum to focus exclusively on American art and artists, it has moved several times in its lifetime. For several years now we’ve known that it will be constructing a new home at the beginning of The High Line at Gansevoort and Washington Streets. Foundation work started last summer, but until now it’s been hard to find images that provide a true sense of what it will look and feel like. This video gives you the history and the future of the New Whitney in realistic three dimensional video-renderings. Excited to know it will anchor the Meat-Packing District’s south western corner. Only a block away from another style of exhibitions at the glass enclosed Standard Hotel, I expect the Whitney to become a key attraction downtown. Welcome back home, Whitney.

Timelapse video of New York, by Will Boisture. Incredible!

New York is a place that moves, pulsates with life, people, cars, planes, trains and subways. Set against a morning sky or setting sun, Manhattan’s skyline provides so many perspectives and views. Time changes it and over time it grows and evolves. This video is an incredible testament that captures the beauty of New York, that everyone seems to love. The New York which captures hearts and minds. Watch it. This is why people move here. This is why people buy real estate here, even if they live on another continent. It’s just special. Enjoy!

1 World Trade Center Rises – A View from the Top

1 World Trade Center Rises – A View from the Top Ironworker delicately maneuvers on a beam high above Manhattan at the 1 World Trade Center site - Photo: Damon Winter for the NYT

The New York Times published the most amazing moving video-photo montage (Click Link To Watch It) of the men who are the faces behind the structure that is rising so rapidly downtown, 1 World Trade Center. Look up New York! While we hurry to work, take our children to school and type texts as we walk past 900 feet below, where once two stood now rises this One.

As Labor Day and the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 approaches, I wanted to pay homage to those who are working every day to re-build (or should I say build) the World Trade Center. Read more…
