You would have to be a little bit more specific than that, Manhattan has plenty of areas within it and the price can vary DRAMATICALLY! What exact are are you looking for and what type of business do you plan on putting in it?... more
My brother is currently looking for an estate lawyer as well. He has been doing a lot of research. He has also looked at reviews online of different lawyers so that he can make sure he gets the best one.

The quality of life all over Manhattan is good depending on your interests and income. Ultimately it comes down to what you're looking for. The Lower East Side is a younger, artsier area with galleries, bars, and lots of nightlife. The Upper West Side has some of this too but it also has more in the way of estbalished arts with Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, and Symphony Space. Riverside Park is right there as is the crown jewel of New York City parks, Central Park. It's probably more family friendly and quieter.
As far as property values? The Upper West Side is largely a bit more expensive, particularly when you get near Central Park and it becomes the domain of the richest people in the world. However, many people live where they can and depending on size, views, outdoor space and many other variables, you can spend equal amounts in both places.... more
From York Avenue which is where most people get boloxed - there is the M32 bus which goes up and down York and also goes crosstown on 57th st to the west side. The 4,5,6 trains run along Lexington Avenue all the way up. The F train goes up to Lexington and 63rd St. The N,R and Q trains goes to 59th and Lexington.... more
3 to 6% generally considered the standard. As the Financial District has had a fairly large increase in the last year you may be more likely to get away with the upper end. It also depends on where you have it priced now.... more
Have you been able to find a good locksmith Richard? I'll be relocating to Brooklyn this Fall, I'll want to make sure I get the services of a good locksmith. I wouldn't mind finding a good one who offers 24 hour lock services; just in case. http://www.novocastrianlocksmiths.com.au... more
It varies, I worked as a packer for 7 years in my 20's. It can cost around $25 an hour or more depending on the company. As for the moving part, some charge by square foot and others by the weight. Another way of doing it is one overall flat fee. Get a few estimates and most important, be careful who you hire. You get what you pay for in this business.
Depends what part of L.E.S, you can walk up E. Houston or hop on the bus that will take you Houston and 6th Ave. If you're on Essex St you can hop on the bus, M14 which goes across Essex and makes a left on 14th St across the city. You can walk up Houston or Grand St or any street that goes West and then on Bowery walk up Bleecker and that will put you in the heart of the village,or cab it on rainy and snowy days. Best of luck.

Typically the rental market starts heating up after winter and peaks during the summer months. A few causes are students moving in & out and also it is much easier for parents when their children are out of school. It also is a much better experience in nicer weather! Feel free to send me a message and I'd be happy to give you free advice about the rental process and what neighborhoods fit your price range & interests.
I live in the neighborhood, and also have a new listing coming up in Gracie Gardens. The Marine Transfer Station has been a concern for this neighborhood for years now, and there is still hope that it may not end up being implemented. However, I also believe that prices in the area have been lowered compared to the actual value of the apartments because of the fear of the MTS, combined with the Second Avenue Construction project. I believe that the fear of the unknown in terms of the MTS is worse than the reality of it, even if it begins operation. So my personal opinion is that there is great value in this area right now.... more
