Being a pet owner can be a labor of love. It’s not always easy to find a building that will take you and your animal companions.

Very few twenty-year-olds have the hard-earned financial capital to afford a million dollar piece of real estate in Manhattan. However, there are wealthy parents who purchase Manhattan apartments for their children as an investment. Every twenty-year-old has the desire to live in an area of town that they choose. So the ones who have access to capital have influence. Their thumb is on a pulse that is dictated by rising fads, not market prices. This is when investors need to start listening. Where are things happening? How can a parent tap into a trendy area, keep a child happy, and make a cool profit in the process? Let’s look at movement in the neighborhoods that entice the young and hip in New York, determine if today’s cool sets tomorrow’s high-end, and gauge if there’s overlooked in...

 Simplex is asking $40M, duplex is asking north of $80M 520 Park Avenue The penthouse at 520 Park Avenue — once seeking $130 million — was among several trophy apartments seeking nine-figure sums when it hit the market in 2014. But that was then, this is now. In recent months, Zeckendorf Development quietly joined the ranks of developers opting to split once-massive penthouses into two or more smaller units. In 520 Park’s case, what was once planned as a 12,398-square-foot triplex is now being offered as a simplex seeking $40 million and duplex priced between $80 million and $100 million.  Arthur Zeckendorf The developers couldn’t be reached for comment, but sources familiar with the decision said they realized last year that the triplex was simply too big. “It was easier to sell a full...

You could consider this a part two to my previous blog post: Brooklyn New York Hidden Gem - Barbès. As shared, on December 30th, 2018, I took a tour of the boroughs in NYC and made specific stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn. This post focuses on my visit to MomaIt's been a year or so since I've returned to MoMa and this was a much needed treat! New exhibits that really caught my attention included Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts and Charles White: A Retrospective. The photo you see as the featured image is an installation from the Bruce Nauman's installation. And as for Charles White, I purposely didn't post any photos because you simply need to visit the exhibit for yourself. I will say, his work is mind blowing with his level artistic craftsmanship and messages sent. Do we have any Lee ...

You can travel a thousand miles to another big city, and feel more at home there than someone from a rural part of that country, coming to the city for the first time. When you get beyond the language, big cities are the same in many ways. There is a certain ebb and flow. For an investor to buy real estate in Manhattan, the transition from Hong Kong or Singapore for their families can actually be more fluid and familiar than for a family moving to the Big Apple from upstate New York. What’s selling in upstate New York? For less than a million dollars you can own a nine-bedroom 9,040 mansion with six full and four half baths. It’s on 43 acres of land overlooking Cayuga Lake. However, even for the well-heeled owners of such a property, a move to the city would feel cramped and confined.  ...

Yesterday, I presented a Feng Shui workshop for the interior design firm, Rees Roberts + Partners LLC in New York City. This was a lovely bunch and I'm so happy we had the opportunity to meet! Besides covering the heart of the presentation (Feng Shui and Interior Design), we also got into some pretty interesting topics; karma, intentions, space clearing techniques, techniques in coaching and mindful listening, and the reviewing of certain situations the designers are currently addressing through the lens of Feng Shui. What's also pretty cool about the workshop, is the team gifted themselves this event as an early Christmas present!

California is often thought of as the star-struck state, but there are a dazzling number of celebrities that live in NYC as well. As opposed to the glamour of show biz, New York City has always been seen as the place you go to “make it big” in business, Broadway, or song and dance. And for marquee names ranging from Bette Midler to Madonna, Manhattan is where they achieved their success. However, there are also stars of the silver screen that have made New York their home, drawn by the allure of status and security you can only find in Manhattan real estate.Taking a look on the map of the stars homes in Manhattan it’s possible to point out film legends such as Paul Newman, who had lived just off the park, near Bette Midler, on East 93rd. Tom Hanks has made his home on East 79th Street i...

 Moving to a new property is something that people will do several times. However, most of us know that moving is a hassle thing to do. From packing to the cleaning, everything should be taken into account before the moving day. Without careful planning, the tasks will be ultimately harder to tackle in the long run. You also need to spend more time to get your property ready to live in. With this in mind, here are the things you must know before moving to a new property. 1. Budget– Relocation costs can quickly rack up. That being said, it’s important to have a budget in place so you can be able to shoulder all the expenses during the move.

An artist has uncovered the location of some of the most iconic album art in the last sixty years. Bob Egan, also a New York commercial realtor, has used his cross-city know-how to find the exact addresses of the cover shoots for bands such as Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and The Who.The project is an interesting reminder that the more Manhattan changes, the more it stays the same. The city is, and always will be, synonymous with cosmopolitan style and culture. Property will always be in demand, the allure of will never diminish, and by some wealthy individuals, luxury real estate will continue to be defined by the view of Central Park and the cache of owning a throphy apartment at 15 CPW. The fashion district may move across town and Madison Avenue has seen its Mad Men shuffle, but wi...

According to Thrillist.com, the number one holiday celebrated in America is, Thanksgiving. With that said, I have to admit, the origins of this holiday for me seem a bit unsettling having knowledge about the history of conflict between Native Americans and Europeans. Being aware of this, I have chosen to approach this National holiday by giving thanks and sharing a day of appreciation with family whom I may not always be able to see. Segwaying from this brief introduction, below are 7 Unique Feng Shui Thanksgiving Tips To Consider:  1. Surrender to the Chaos of the Holidays The modern-day translation for the word holiday means to rest and relax. Yet, the irony of this is, before getting to that state of mind, there is a bit of chaos that unfolds. It seems the collective consciousness of...
