Real Estate | What’s Coming in New York Real Estate in 2019 Sections Skip to content Skip to site index An already soft market will get another 20,000 new apartments, making it an even stronger buyer’s and renter’s market. Credit Credit Brad Dickson for The New York Times Supported by ByStefanos Chen Jan. 4, 2019 More than 20,000 new apartments in New York, both for sale and for rent, will open their doors this year — and likely just a fraction will find residents by year end. The affordable ones, of course, will attract thousands of applicants, but the bulk of the new units — in gleaming towers, many of them conceived at the height of the last housing boom — will enter a saturated market, where buyers and renters have ample choice and little incentive to rush. At the current rate of sales, it will take more than six years to sell all of the new development in Manhattan alone, which … [Read more...] about What’s Coming in New York Real Estate in 2019

Joseph Spector Albany Bureau Published 1:34 PM EST Nov 6, 2018 ALBANY - Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be looking to ride "the blue wave" to a third term Tuesday as he is favored to beat Republican Marc Molinaro and three, third-party candidates. Cuomo, who was first elected in 2010, has inundated the airwaves with ads touting his record and his criticism of President Donald Trump, spending more than $31 million so far on his re-election bid. The other candidates have been unable to compete in fundraising, leaving them to cross the state to build ground support for their candidacies. Cuomo was ahead by 13 percentage points against Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, according to a Siena College poll Sunday. That was the closest the race has been after Cuomo easily dispatched actress Cynthia Nixon in a September primary. "This isn’t just about Democrats; they talk about the 'blue wave,'" Cuomo said at a rally Monday. "This is about any decent New Yorker who believes in … [Read more...] about Gov.

Jon Campbell Albany Bureau Published 9:27 AM EDT Oct 20, 2018 ALBANY – Two years before a horrific crash claimed the lives of 20 people in rural New York, a special grand jury recommended dozens of ways to improve the safety and regulation of stretch limousines — almost all of which went unheeded by state policymakers. The 2016 report from a Suffolk County grand jury came after a limo crash the previous year left four dead on Long Island, temporarily sparking a conversation about the safety of vehicles that are "stretched" into limousines after they hit the market. But the detailed, 156-page report ultimately had little impact: Most of its state-level recommendations never made it into law. Many of the recommendations wouldn't have applied to the deadly Oct. 6 crash in the town of Schoharie, 35 miles west of Albany, where a 2001 Ford Excursion limo ran through an intersection at the bottom of a hill and crashed into an unoccupied SUV, killing the driver, 17 … [Read more...] about A prior limousine crash killed 4 in New York.
