Vacant, Loft-style apartment in Greenwich Village the Duplex Photographed

The Silk Building is a famous loft style condominium in the heart of Greenwich Village. Its a monster building with 12 stories that house 55 unique units. One of them is unit 817.

The Stunning Apartment No One Wants

It’s normally not too difficult to sell a luxury apartment in New York.  According to a recent report by Douglas Elliman, luxury properties in Manhattan average only 90 days on the market. This makes a mystery out of the gem of a penthouse on the 51st and 52nd floors of One Beacon Court that has been on the market for more than a year now. The apartment’s owner, Stephen Cohen, the ill-famed hedge fund manager, is rumored to be downright confused and irritated.

Manhattan is Out, Brooklyn is In

Finally there is evidence to support a fact that most New Yorkers have known for a long time—Brooklyn, not Manhattan, is the place to be. According to Douglas Elliman’s first quarter report, the Manhattan real estate market may have finally plateaued after two years of steady price growth. Meanwhile, Brooklyn is high in demand, with the median sale price up 17.5% year-on-year. If you are thinking about crossing the river, you are obviously not alone. The Elliman report reveals that the median sale price in Manhattan was down -.2% in the first three months of the…
