Great question. This area has been seeing the early stages of development. When my former company was marketing 29 Park Madison, that and Sky House, both pioneers of luxury high rises in the neighborhood, seemed a little off the beaten path. That is changing. The Gansevoort came. Madison Square Park is well-loved and the home of the original Shake Shack. Now with Mario Batali's Eataly, the area is heating up. The neighborhood has not been getting a lot of hype, but the time to get the deals is to spot where the developing areas are and get in before the hype is everywhere.
