The former Con-Ed switch station turned lavish loft apartment at 215 Lafayette Street seems to be unabashedly using the fact that Beyoncé once shot a music video there to justify its uber expensive $80,000 a month price tag.
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is apparently moving into the “The Wolf of Wall Street” featured Milan Condominium at 300 East 55th Street, since her fiancé Nick Loeb has just rented an apartment there.
We New Yorkers love our shopping. But what we especially love is online shopping. Passing a lazy Sunday morning in the cozy comfort of our bed, ordering up a storm on Amazon.com – It really does beat battling the crowds on Broadway. Let’s face it, we’ve become lazy with our shopping. But with so few incentives nowadays to actually step foot inside a store, who can blame us?
Partying billionaire Stewart Rahr has sold his 32nd-floor Upper East Side condo at the Oxford for $3.9 million after the unit was on the market for only a short six months.
Rahr, whose wealth originates from his family’s Kinray pharmaceuticals company, which he sold in 2010, placed the sprawling 3,368-square-foot apartment on the market with Sotheby’s around the beginning of the summer for $4.3 million.
The typically deserted west end of Charles Street was abuzz with activity Tuesday afternoon. The ginormous construction site that is slowly being developed into the very plush, very exclusive 150 Charles Street was on display for a horde of onlookers in hard hats who’d come to celebrate the building’s topping out.
The Howard Hughes Corporation has just released plans to add a rather large specialty grocery store to the soon-to-be-revamped South Street Seaport Pier 17, one that is designed to be reminiscent of Mario Batali’s Eataly.

102 Prince Street, whose top unit was the set for the 1990 romantic thriller starring Demi Moore and the late Patrick Swayze, has placed its 4,500-square-foot condo loft back on the market after it was successfully sold for $8.9 million just last October—although it was trying to get $9.5 million for it at the time.
Singer/songwriter Carly Simon has finally sold her Manhattan apartment at 46 Commerce Street after desperately trying to rid herself of this charming abode for quite some time.
The folksy singer's West Village pad, which was built in 1817, was going for $3.8 million back in 2008. The price was chopped to $2.75 million a while back, but it ultimately sold for just $2.32 million. With a listing period of just over five years, it was obviously having trouble garnering potential buyers.
Avant-garde architect and designer Karim Rashid, who designed a “diamond” inspired building for Harlem last month is, well, at it again.
Rashid is well known for creating highly unusual buildings, which a lot of times involve whimsical themes and plenty of pastels. This time he will be adding yet another bold design to his portfolio with his new 100-unit project in the Washington Heights section of the city for HAP Investments.
