Seinfeld Apartment

Seinfeld Apartment

How much would it cost to live like Monica, Jerry or Carrie? Estimating what it would really cost to live in TV apartments

Last weekend, we brought you floor plans from popular television shows by master of interiors Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde – some were even better than on the small screen. Now, we are asking what it would cost to live in some of those apartments.

“Friends”
Location: West Village
Cost today: $4,500/month

Monica Geller is said to have inherited her two-bedroom, one-bathroom, presumably rent-controlled apartment that she shares with Rachel Green from her grandmother. But what would it cost if she were paying market rate? According to the New York Post, at least $4,500, but probably a lot more.

“Seinfeld”
Location: Upper We上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛st Side
Cost today: $3,400/month

Few apartments from TV are more recognizable than Jerry Seinfeld’s bachelor pad. So what would his one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment at 129 West 81st Street, a skip away from the American Museum of Natural History, cost? Well, Citi Habitats data shows that the average rent for a one-bedroom in the neighborhood is $3,836. The last studios to hit the market in “Jerry’s building” were asking $1,775 to $1,975 a month. So the post is putting it at $3,400 a month.

“Sex and the City”
Location: Upper East Side
Cost today: $2,700/month

This one is trickier. First, Carrie Bradshaw allegedly lived in a rent-controlled, one-bedroom apartment at 245 East 73rd Street. But the façade of her building featured in The Show Was On Per[……]

Woman accused of extorting $400K out of Spitzer arraigned Russian gal pal Svetlana Travis threatened to reveal affair to ex-gov’s family: prosecutors

Bronx prosecutors accuse a woman of extorting nearly $400,000 out of governor-turned-developer Eliot Spitzer. Svetlana Travis, a Russian national, reportedly had an affair with Spitzer and repeatedly threatened to tell his family if he didn’t cough up money.

“For over two years, [Spitzer] was forced to regularly pay the defendant [between] $3,000 to $50K,” Bronx prosecutor Thomas Boyle said in a爱上海 爱上海同城手机版 statement.

“These payments were in the form of checks . . . and wire payments to name and bank account of the defendant,” he added. “On multiple occasions she would then transfer large amounts of money . . . to Russian banks.”

Boyle took the case after Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance recused himself.

Prosecutors accuse Travis, who was arrested Monday after returning from Russia, of running a “systemic and protracted extortion scheme” between 2014 and 2016, according to the New York Post.

The relationship between Spitzer and Travis became public in February, when 阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城she accused him of choking her in a Plaza Hotel room . Spitzer, who runs development firm Spitzer Enterprises, initially sued Travis for extortion, but withdrew his complaint last month.

Travis was evicted from her Upper East Side apartment in February after neighbors complained that she was running an escort service o[……]

UPDATED: Thursday, Jan. 19 at 10:12 a.m.: President-elect Donald Trump tapped longtime friends and fellow developers Steven Roth and Richard LeFrak to head up a council that will monitor national infrastructure spending.

“They’re pros,” Trump Told The Wall Street Journal Friday. “That’s what they do. All their lives, they build. They build under-budget, ahead of schedule.”

Both Roth , who leads Vornado Realty Trust, and LeFrak, who heads the LeFrak Organization, have agreed to take the new positions, Trump said.

In October, Trump economic advisors Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro unveiled an infrastructure plan set on generating up to $1 trillion in private investment by doling out $137 billion in tax cuts.

Roth and LeFrak have been fixtures of the New York real estate industry for decades and both are known to be among the president-elect s closest friends. LeFrak was at one time the only personal friend allowed to bring his dogs to Trump s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, and Roth, who co-owns 1290 Sixth Avenue with Trump, has a relationship with the president-elect that dates back to the 1980s.

While LeFrak was a major donor to the Tr上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛ump campaign, giving $100,000 to the cand新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区idate s victory fund上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛 last summer, Roth, a[……]

Seriously, where are the women? 爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城Stribling prez to Bravo on MDLNY In op-ed, brokerage chief Stribling-Kivlan laments lack of female brokers on real estate reality show

In April, Bravo TV answered the prayers of real estate reality fans everywhere when the network announced it found someone to fill the shoes of Luis Ortiz, who defected to Paris and quit real estate altogether. The network tapped Town Residential broker Steven Gold to join Ryan Serhant and Fredrik Eklund on the sixth season of Million Dollar Listing NY.

But not everyone was so excited when they caught wind of Ortiz’s replacement.

“Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be a female in the future for this real estate reality show and it’s really bumming me out,” Stribling Associates president Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan wrote in an op-ed that appeared on Inman News this morning.

Though Stribling-Kivlan reinforced that she felt no ill-will towards Gold, Serhant or Eklund (and even called herself a “huge fan” of MDLNY), the brokerage chief took aim at Bravo’s exclusion of prominent female brokers since the show’s debut in 2006. Samantha DeBianchi starred in just eight episodes of “Million Dollar Listing Miami,” which has yet to be picked up for another season following its fi新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区nale in August 2014.

Excelsior San Francisco

Excelsior San Francisco

This little-known San Francisco neighborhood is suddenly one of the hottest housing markets in America — take a look

Melia Robinson/Business Insider

Excelsior is a small, often overlooked neighborhood in San Francisco. It s named for the Latin translation of ever upward — appropriate given Excelsior s sunny new outlook in the housing market.

In 2017, real-estate site Redfin named Excelsior the second hottest neighborhood in San Francisco, based the ranking on increases in internet traffic to listings there. Excelsior homes typically sell in 19 days at 111% of the listing price. The median sales price was $890,000.

I visited Excelsior to see why the under-the-radar neighborhood is making a splash.

Located in the city s southern end, Excelsior has been called the Siberia of San Francisco.

The mostly residential neighborhood isn t on the way to anything. You won t find startup offices or trendy restaurants in Excelsior. It s one of the last areas without a Starbucks.

Melia Robinson/Business Insider

But with the median home sales price topping $1.5 million in San Francisco, prospective homebuyers are giving Excelsior — an enclave for the working class — a second glance.

Fifty years ago, the neighborhood served as a refuge for Irish and Italian immigrants who came to the US looking for work. They could afford homes in the far reaches of the city.

New York Rental Housing

New York Rental Housing

New Yorkers are some of the most dissatisfied tenants Is heat and a working toilet really that much to ask for?

Welcome to New York, rat capital of America. (Front photo by ArtBrom/Flickr; back photo by Pixabay)

Based on the 2015 American Housing Survey, Abodo, a site for rental listings, ranked 25 metro areas according to where tenants are the most satisfied with their homes. New York came in among the bottom five in tenant satisfaction with a rank of 22.

Why? Prices are an obvious factor, as expected, but two major gripes that New York scored the worst in were a lack of heat and broken toilets. Almost 20 percent of New York renters surveyed reported being uncomfortably cold for over 2上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛4 hours while almos阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城t 6 percent said they didn t have a working toilet for some period of time within the past three months.

New York finally nabbed the top score in one area: the Big Apple was the top metro area surveyed to report rodents. About 20 percent of the tenants yes, that s one in five surveyed said they noticed evidence of mice or rats in their apar上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛tme上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛nts in the last year.

Is StreetEasy s traffic starting to slide? Estimates from audience-measuring tools show drop of between 12-45 %

Spencer Rascoff

This year, Zillow made its most aggressive moves to boost revenue from StreetEasy since acquiring it in 2013. But in the process, StreetEasy might be slipping in an all-important popularity contest.

According to new data from several online audience-measurement tools such as Quantcast and SimilarWeb, traffic to the listings platform s website and mobile app are down considerably sin上海夜网论坛 上海夜网ce the spring.

An estimate by SimilarWeb shows that StreetEasy s total monthly traffic dropped to 3.2 million total visits as of Nov. 30, down almost 45 percent from 5.8 million visits as of June 30.

StreetEasy said the SimilarWeb figures are completely inaccurate and are being used to purposely mislead agents away from one business to another. The company, owned by Zillow Group, called the analysis a gross misinterpretation of StreetEasy traffic, which is not only strong but growing year after year.

But other online tools also showed that StreetEasy s numbers have taken a hit. According to Quantcast, StreetEasy reached 426,000 people in November, down 12.3 percent from 486,340 people in June. (It should be noted that Quantcast said StreetEasy s traffic grew a massive 74 percent compared to November 2016.)

And data from Alexa — a company owned by Amazon — showed StreetEasy slid nearly 1,600 spots in its ranking, based on traffic and engagement. Alexa ranked StreetEasy No[……]

Google NYC

From the March issue: If Google s $2.4 billion buy of 75 Ninth Avenue last week from Jamestown Properties is any indication, the tech giant has started to piece together something of a second headquarters in Manhattan.

Between its monster $1.77 billion deal for 111 上海千花社区 上海千花网交友Eighth Avenue in 2010 and its lease deals at 85 10th Avenue and RXR Realty and Youngwoo Associates upcoming Pier 57 project, Google has assembled a fiefdom that stretches along West 15th Street from Eighth Avenue out to the waterfront pier.

And i上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛t s come a long way since it s early dealings in the city.

transform a vibrant slice of Manhattan?

Google inked its first Manhattan deal on Dec. 31, 1999, when it signed a lease at 1440 Broadway in Times Square. That office space grew to 170,000 square feet over the next six years, according to lease documents and news reports.

The space soon became too cramped for Google’s more than 500 employees, and the company’s executives looked to Midtown South. In 2005, they signed a lease for 300,000 square feet at 111 Eighth Avenue, a 2.9 million-square-foot, block-long office building then owned by Taconic Investment Partners, Jamestown and a state pension fund. At the time, sources told the New York Times that Google liked the location because the building sat on top of a major internet fiber-optic line.

While also planting a flag across the street at the Chelsea Market building in 2007, Google was determined to keep growing at[……]
