Real Estate Subway Series, A NYC Journey
The goal of this series is to explore how the real
estate industry contributes to making New York City one of the
greatest cities on Earth. Real Estate is the very life blood of
this great city, from the labyrinthine underground subway
tunnels to the top of the Empire State Building. Our aim is to
show the important role that real estate professionals play in
making this city an extraordinary place to live and do business.
New York City is comprised of 5 city-sized counties, each
with its own unique personality. Manhattan is known for its
upscale shopping corridors and luxury high-rise apartments.
Brooklyn, once an artists’ hideaway, has recently been
transformed into a hipster mecca – and the arts continue to
thrive. Queens, one of the most racially diverse places in the
world, has a diverse offering of ethnic eateries in communities
that include yuppies and blue-collar workers. The Bronx is home
to the most successful sports franchise in existence, (as well
as the famous Bronx Zoo) and the borough has enjoyed a
remarkable revitalization over the past decade. Staten Island,
once considered “the Forgotten Borough,” has developed a rich
artistic heritage (Wu-Tang Clan anyone?) and the redevelopment
of the waterfront will include the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.
Each of the five boroughs that make-up New York City has it’s
own culture and real estate history.
