New York Real Estate Market Overview

They call it "The City That Never Sleeps" for good reason. In a town that offers so much to see, learn, share, and do, building a life here (and having fun while you're at it) is hard not to do. From downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn boutiques, restaurants, waterfront concerts, markets, and festivals to the lush parkways, zoos, and cultural institutions throughout uptown Manhattan, Staten Island, The Bro...nx, and Queens, there's something to do for every age and lifestyle. There's no such thing as an "average" day in New York City. And that's precisely why people love it.View more

Insider Tips: Where to Go

morning-icon

Morning

The best way to get a jump on a Manhattan day? Take it all in from a rooftop. Brunch at any number of open-air restaurants between Madison Square Park and Midtown East or West, and plot out the rest of your day in style.

afternoon-icon

Afternoon

Climb the stairs around West 30th to walk the High Line (grab an ice cream from Bubby's or Melt) before ducking down to Chelsea Market for a lobster roll. Score some homemade sriracha and thumb the hand-bound cookbooks at Posman Books.

evening-icon

Evening

Nothing beats the New York live-performance scene. Take your pick of Broadway plays or Off Broadway stand-up at Caroline's. Want to go more indie? Venture downtown to an offbeat production at Tribeca drama gem The Flea Theater on White Street.
