Now that we’re nearer to the election, and since the negative press surrounding all things Donald Trump has come to a head, things are starting to crumble for his real estate empire. Not only did his personal hotel brand decide to drop his moniker, but a group of Trump Place tenants even went so far as to petition their board to remove his name from their buildings. A report out today in the Times takes a closer look at how sales are declining, and data from CityRealty confirms that from 2015 to 2016, there was a 17 percent decrease in the number of sales at Trump condos.
Take the aforementioned Trump Place at 220 Riverside Boulevard for example, where, funnily enough, the Obamas attended a fundraiser in 2012. Looking at the 12-month period that ended in September, there were 25 sales in the building last year, while this year there’s only been 16. And at neighboring 200 Riverside Boulevard, 12th floor residents Harvey and Peggy Koeppel can’t seem to sell their condo. They listed it this summer for $2.85 million, reduced the price by $55,000 in September, and decided to de-list it this month when their broker suggested chopping another $100,000 off the price tag. “My sense is that there’s a definite negative impact to having Trump’s name there right now. For me personally, I’m embarrassed to tell people I live in a Trump building,” said Mr. Koeppel. At Trump World Tower, ironically the city’s most valuable condo, the number of sales dropped from 20 to just 14. And at Trump Parc East, there’s yet to be even one sale this year.
Overall, the number of sales in Trump’s 11 condos dropped from 125 to 104 during this 12-month period, but despite this decrease, it should be noted that in terms of price per square foot, Trump’s condos are still selling above average. CityRealty’s data shows that there was a seven percent increase in sales price during this time, from $1,812 to $1,930.

Wine and condoms often go hand-in-hand, but one product has actually combined the two. Wine Condoms, available on Amazon, are so popular that they are currently sold out through the online retailer. Their description also claims that Amy Poehler, Sharon Stone, Mila Kunis, Madonna, Bethenny Frankel, Melissa McCarthy, Patricia Arquette, Rosie O’Donnell and Ruby Rose “have one.” But what really makes these unique? Unlike other stoppers that sit flush with the rib of the bottle, according to the website, these sit flush with the bottle.

When it comes to affordable housing, the Bronx is booming. 6sqft previously reported that proposals were being heard to bring 1,665 affordable apartments to the site of the Bronx Zoo-bordering Lambert Houses, which would double the development’s current affordable housing units, triple the existing retail space, create a new public school, and help to better integrate the community into the surrounding neighborhood. As reported by the Times, Phipps Houses, the complex’s nonprofit owner and developer, has moved ahead on plans to demolish the existing 14 buildings and build taller towers, a project that’s gotten a $600 million price tag.
The Lambert Houses seemed futuristic and innovative in the mid-1970s when they were constructed, but today seem outdated due to infrastructure problems like sewage backup and a less-than-safe layout for residents entering and leaving the building. Adam Weinstein, president and chief executive of Phipps Houses, describes the revamp as “undoing the downzoning of the ’60s and ’70s.”
Current buildings with “spiky facades constructed with custom-made bricks the color of burnt-sienna crayons” will be razed and replaced, and the redevelopment will make it more difficult for thieves to get in and out by limiting access. HPD was sure to note that no current Lambert tenants will be displaced; if the building in which they currently reside is slated to be demolished, residents will be relocated to new buildings within the complex; they’ll be moved to temporary apartments while their homes are being rebuilt.
Neighborhood reaction to the Lambert overhaul has been positive, and the district’s councilman Ritchie Torres favors the redevelopment. The Bronx is home to 28 percent of the 55,509 low-income apartments that have become available under the mayor’s plan, and the City Council recently approved the La Central development, which will bring nearly 1,000 affordable units to Melrose under de Blasio’s mandatory inclusionary housing legislation.

The St. George’s Church conversion, at 205 East 16th Street in Gramercy, did an amazing job of preserving church details as well as integrating them into residential units. Now known as the Abbey Condominium, it’s not unusual for these luxury units to boast stained glass, pews or wrought iron lantern lights. This triplex, which has just hit the market, is decked out with remnants from the church–even in the apartment’s solarium–and it’s asking $6.35 million.
The grand living room, on the main floor of the triplex, boasts coffered ceilings and incredible stained glass windows that face south. The current owners have divided the open room into both a living and dining area.
An adjoining eat-in kitchen has more church touches, with a pew that serves as seating to the kitchen table.
Wrought iron details abound, including this bannister and the lantern lights hanging from the ceiling.
This 3,462-square-foot condo is massive, with three bedrooms on the main floor, another bedroom on a mezzanine level, and yet another bedroom (plus a solarium and roof terrace) above. In total, there are five bedrooms–one of which is currently used as a play room–and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Even some of the bedrooms get their own stained glass.
In the master bedroom, portions of the church’s original walls were restored in an apartment redesign. Adjacent to this bedroom is a separate office and master bathroom with beautiful tile work and wrought iron lantern lights that hang from the high ceiling.
From the master suite the doors open out onto a spacious private terrace, which currently holds a solarium and some room for outdoor lounging. If you look close enough, stone detailing from the church exterior can be spotted along the terrace. And if you ask us, there’s no such thing as too many historic church details inside a home.

6sqft’s ongoing series The Urban Lens invites photographers to share work exploring a theme or a place within New York City. In this installment, award-winning photographers James and Karla Murray return with a series of snapshots from last year’s debaucherous Village Halloween Parade. Are you a photographer who’d like to see your work featured on The Urban Lens? Get in touch with us at [email protected].
Started by Greenwich Village mask maker and puppeteer Ralph Lee in 1973, the Village Halloween Parade began as a “wandering neighborhood puppet show.” The event was a walk from house to house in Lee’s neighborhood, created for his children and their friends to enjoy. In the three years that followed, the parade took on new shapes and sizes, propelled first by George Bartenieff and Crystal Field of the Theater for the New City, who staged the production in its second year as part of their City in the Streets program; and then two years later when the parade became a non-profit with its own resources to put on a major show. By 1985, the parade morphed into an extravaganza that marched down Sixth Avenue, attracting 250,000 participants and onlookers. Today, the Village Halloween Parade is the largest celebration of its kind, considered by Festivals International to be “The Best Event in the World” for October 31st.
While the parade is now more spectacle than small-scale and community driven (as Ralph Lee wanted it to remain), there is no question that tens of thousands of costumed individuals can still find their place, and plenty of delight, in its latest incarnation.
As the current artistic and producing director, Jeanne Fleming, told us, “We make a Utopian society for a few hours when everyone can come together joyfully.”
In anticipation of the 2016 festivities—which will take place 7-11 pm on Monday, October 31st under the theme “reverie”—we share some of our favorite snapshots from last year’s affair, in addition to some fun facts about the parade.
▽▽START THE SLIDE SHOW▽▽
Jester. We started the evening at the Canal Street A, C, E station, where costumed participants began to spill out out of the subways while there was still some daylight and the atmosphere started to get electric.
At Canal Street. ONLY costumed marchers are allowed in the parade and you must enter at Sixth Avenue at Canal Street between 7 and 9 pm to ensure that you can participate in the parade.
a Catrina. As the sun began to set, we moved away from the subway exit towards Canal Street west of Sixth Avenue.
Owl. Crossing Canal Street, nearing 7pm, the sun has just set and crowds are gathering.
La Catrina Bride. Entering the General Admission area of the Parade.
General Admission area. We are placed into a huge gated area with other costumed participants
at Sixth Avenue near Grand Street. We are in a group with a very large Kermit the Frog.
Looking south down Sixth Avenue towards Canal Street. Revelers are let go every 15 minutes or so in small groups to move forward along Sixth Avenue.
Progress is slow with intersections kept clear with the use of blue ribbons.
ixth Avenue near Watts Street. Placed into another crowded penned in area our progress comes to a stand still and the revelers get restless.
For a pledge of $100 you can get a VIP Entrance to the Parade for you and a friend. The VIP Entrance will allow you a more spacious place to revel in the crowd.
Sixth Avenue near Broome Street. After an hour or so of shuffling inch-by-inch progress, we finally reach the floats.
Music and smoke machines get pumping and the mood of the impatient crowd starts to improve. Cheers are heard spreading up Sixth Avenue.
Further along Sixth Avenue near Broome Street. More participants and motor vehicles towing floats with DJs and dancers.
If you are in a band, performance group, or dance troupe and would like to “create a spectacle for the millions of people that line the parade route,
you can register with the parade.
Dia de los Muertos Couple at Sixth Avenue near Spring Street. The crowds are finally allowed to roam freely and the northward march along Sixth Avenue begins.
Elmo. Just north of Spring Street, we find this participant who is using the Parade as a platform for protest.
Instant Ramen Noodle. Sixth Avenue at Houston Street, the spectator crowds swell massively, with watchers on both sides of the Avenue cheering and shouting from inside their own penned in area. People also pack apartment windows and straddle light poles to get a better view.
Grandma on a Short Leash. Just north of Bleecker Street, the Parade reaches a fever pitch with everyone having a great time.
If you don’t have a costume, you can volunteer to animate a puppet by contacting the Parade organizers.
Sea Creature Keeper. The Parade welcomes participants of all ages. There is a costume contest during the Parade. If you are IN the Parade, you are IN the contest!
Secret scouts scour the parade and hand contact cards to those who are deemed to have the best costumes. Winners are then chosen from those who contact the Parade organizers.
Thousands of Parade marchers head north. Sixth Avenue near Minetta Lane. The crowds of spectators and marchers along the route reached a peak between Bleecker and 14th Streets.
We could hear a sea of cheering stretching northward. The Parade was fun, loud and awesome.
Artistic and Producing Director of the Village Halloween Parade, Jeanne Fleming, said that “crowds could reach to 2 million for the annual celebration.”
La Catrinas near Carmine Street. Light up hair extensions really stood out for us. The 2015 theme for the Parade was “Shine A Light,” based on Martin Luther King’s quote, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: Only light can do that.”
The 2016 theme for the 43rd Annual Village Halloween Parade is “Reverie,” inviting one and all to recreate their waking dreams.
Each year the Parade and Dream Music Puppetry Program, led by veteran Parade Puppeteer Basil Twist and HERE Arts Center Co-Founder Barbara Busackino commission 3 artists or groups to design and construct Giant Pageant Sized Puppets built around the theme of the Parade.
Batman and his Batmobile. North of Carmine Street we run into the Batmobile rolling northward.
Only a limited number of motorized vehicles are allowed in the Village Halloween Parade and they all require prior arrangements with the Parade to get official permits. Motorized vehicles that just ‘show-up’ at the Parade will be kindly requested not to join the celebration and be turned away.
Skeleton. Near West 3rd Street. The relatively warm night and great weather make the march fun and the Village seems like the center of the world.
The Penguin and Cat Woman. Around West 4th Street. Comic book characters like these were popular this year.
Chained Up at West 4th Street. The street lighting improves dramatically.
Spiral. Near West 4th Street. The inventiveness of the costumes we have seen makes the blocks fly by.
Batmobile and crowds. Approaching Waverly Place we run into the Batmobile again. The number of spectators lining Sixth Avenue is staggering.
Waverly Restaurant. 6Ave at Waverly Place. The neon of one of our favorite diners lights up the crowd. We notice that many of the spectators are also in costume.
Drama masks. Near West 8th Street. Our pitbull Hudson who is walking the Parade with us is loving the cheers he hears
and enjoying the occasional sneaked bit of dropped candy, wrapper and all.
Spectators. Sixth Avenue at West 9th Street. Besides those lining the route in what seems at times to be hundreds deep, a reported television audience of one hundred million watch the spectacle annually.
Glamour. Near West 11th Street. We run into our Catrina friend from Canal Street who finally found her friends. The parade has been featured in many national magazines and travel guides, and has been a subject of study by leading cultural anthropologists.
Clown. Near West 12th Street. According to the New York Times, “the Halloween Parade is the best entertainment the people of this City ever give the people of this City.”
The Parade marchers are funneled eastward down 16th Street signaling the end of the Parade. We shuffle along slowly between more police barricades.
Neanderthal. At Union Square. The party continues as crowds pack the south end of the park.
Artistic and producing director Fleming said, “We make a Utopian society for a few hours when everyone can come together joyfully.” We can’t argue with that.
Grim Reaper.Union Square South. Parade marching is hungry business, even for Death itself. The Grim Reaper recharges his battery at one of the many food carts.

To investigate the question, “What is a New York City rat, and where did it come from?” the New York Times checks in with researchers at Fordham University, led by Jason Munshi-South, who have embarked on a rat-tracking study to find the answer to that very question (among others). It turns out that–much like the city’s millions of two-legged inhabitants–the answer is “everywhere,” from Galapagos and Brazil to New Zealand and Japan.
Getting us thinking about ancestry–and how we’ve all been immigrants at some point in our family history– the recently-published study reveals the results of the research, with some interesting implications and a few surprises. When DNA samples were used to sort 314 brown rats from 30 countries, researchers determined how different rat populations merged over time. And the findings? First, Norway rats, as the city’s brown rats have been categorized, aren’t really from Norway. They originally scampered the cold plains of northern China or Mongolia. When farming arrived, the rats got wise to the convenience factor centuries before Seamless. The population grew and migrated throughout Asia and, eventually, over land and by sea to Europe.
In the U.S., West Coast rats can look to Russia for their ancestry, the study found. Their progenitors likely arrived in the area’s fur trapping communities on ships beginning in the 1700s. But it was the European rats who really got the party going; with the rise of colonialism, the sun never set on rat migration, and the brown rats of New York can trace their origins to Western Europe (which could explain their weakness for pizza). European rats also headed to South America, Africa, New Zealand, and various Atlantic and Pacific islands.
Another surprise: Though our ports teem with brown rat visitors from around the world, the city’s current rat population shows little evidence of this. “You don’t see a lot of recent migrants arriving and reproducing,” according to the researchers. “There’s some force keeping them out.” Says Michael Kohn, an evolutionary biologist at Rice University, “It’s not hard to get there. But it’s hard to get in.”
The thinking is that the first wave of brown rats arrive in a city and plant the proverbial flag–brown rats are known to be territorial, snarly and altogether not very neighborly. When subsequent asylum-squeakers disembark in the city’s ports, they get the wall treatment (which reveals yet another way that rats and people have more in common than some of us would like to think). Dr. Munshi-South believes this could actually be defending us against diseases that arrive with the outsiders: “It’s unlikely that a lot of diseases are going to be entering cities on rats walking into the local rat population.”

Commercial landlords looking to compete with cutting-edge co-working spaces like the Navy Yard’s New Lab or amenity-filled developments like Industry City have their work cut out for them, and it looks like Two Trees is pulling out all the requisite stops for their new office building The Refinery at Williamsburg‘s massive, under-construction Domino Sugar Factory complex. Curbed got its hands on the first set of renderings of the 380,000-square-foot office space, which show how tenants can work with architects Beyer Blinder Belle to customize their spaces for “innovation” and “authenticity.” The interiors preserve the former industrial details (exposed brick, ceilings beams), while incorporating creative perks such as suspended glass-and-steel office pods, an indoor skate park, and a bevy of common areas.
Two Trees broke ground last spring on the three million-square-foot Domino Sugar Refinery Master Plan, which will altogether yield 2,300 apartments, 500,000 square feet of commercial space, a new school, and a public waterfront park. The developer recently put out a marketing package created by design firm Sagmeister & Walsh for The Refinery, which is where Curbed found the renderings.
Not surprisingly, the proposed designs have open floorplans with large, shared desks and plenty of areas to congregate, including four terraces totaling 34,000 square feet.
The 19th century building will have ground-floor retail, an open plaza out front, and direct access to the new park and ferry landing.
Provided Two Trees can secure an anchor tenant, The Refinery is expected to be completed in 2018.

When this enormous Soho loft at 50 Wooster Street hit the market for $23.3 million last December, 6sqft ogled its sleek renovation, complete with a motorized headboard, twin beds that slide together to form a king, copper tub, color-changing walls, and a secret cat tunnel that goes from the kitchen to the litter box in the pantry. But this wasn’t enough to entice a buyer, as it’s now gotten a pretty major price chop down to $15.95 million. If saving $7 million doesn’t do the trick, though, LL NYC has uncovered that the 4,800-square-foot pad once belonged to none other than Sir Elton John. He sold the loft in 2010 for $7.45 million to its current owner, art consultant Sara Tecchia, who enlisted Jeff Goldberger at Urban Edition Architecture to complete the uber-contemporary and tech-forward renovation.
A private elevator opens to the foyer, framed by a curving, back-lit bookshelf that leads to the 47′ x 28′ great room. Here you’ll find exposed beams, two giant floor-to-ceiling arched windows, and two sets of French doors that open to a 528-square-foot terrace.
Off this space is an additional entertainment area, fully loaded with the latest in media gadgets, as well as a Piet Mondrian-inspired powder room that has an “LED mood wall” that changes color via remote control.
The open kitchen has top-of-the-line everything, including rubberized wood cabinets, Ceasarstone counters and backsplashes, and a huge island suspended between two columns. The adjacent pantry has a second dishwasher, washer/dryer, and wine cooler.
The incredible master suite has an Eco-smart fireplace, motorized shades, and a motorized headboard that allows you to face either the terrace or the fireplace, depending on your mood or the time of year. There’s also floor-to-ceiling closets with custom lighting, specialized luggage storage, a dressing area, and built-in motorized clothing rods. The master bath boasts a curved vanity, heated porcelain floors, a bidet, a raw copper soaking tub, and a double rain shower with several body jets, built-in shelves, a bench, and glass mosaic tiling paired with custom sparkle grout.
There are two more bedrooms, one of which has a pair of twin beds that slide together to form a large King bed.
According to owner Sara Tecchia, “the space is the art,” a fact that will hopefully get the condo off her hands. The cat tunnel she personally designed for her three pets may also draw interest from feline lovers.

Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore bought a duplex loft at 345 West 13th Street in 1999 for just $911,500. After she and her husband, director Bart Freundlich, decided to upgrade to the West Village building’s penthouse in 2002, they turned quite the profit, unloading the apartment for $1.95 million. The couple now live in a townhouse nearby at 335 West 11th Street, which they bought in 2003 for $3.5 million and subsequently renovated to the nines, but their original downtown abode is back on the market, this time asking $4.3 million, according to the Observer.
Though there are no interior photos, we do get a glimpse of the charming view from the terrace, overlooking the adjacent Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. The apartment has 2,573 square feet, three bedrooms, high ceilings, and hardwood floors. A private elevator opens directly to the main level, where you’ll find the open living/dining room with exposed brick walls, a galley kitchen with entrances from both the dining room and home office/library, and the master wing that comes complete with an ensuite bathroom and four large closets. Upstairs is a laundry room and two additional bedrooms, one of which opens to the 225-square-foot decked roof terrace.
Listing agent Tom Doyle of Sotheby’s International Real Estate told the Observer to expect more photos next week. Until then, why not ogle Moore’s charming, pond-front Montauk home?

When SpareRoom CEO and founder Rupert Hunt announced earlier this month that he was looking for two roommates to share his $8 million West Village apartment–both of whom would be paying just $1 a month–we knew the interest would be high. And after a “SpeedRoommating” session on the 19th, the room share service’s version of speed dating, we’ve learned that a whopping 8,795 people applied for a chance to live in the triplex loft. According to a press release, Hunt has narrowed it down to 10 lucky finalists, and he’ll be hosting them next week at house party, where he can learn more about them and see who gets along best.
Why the $1 deal? As 6sqft previously explained:
After separating from his wife in 2013, Hunt started sharing his apartment. Not only did he love the experience, but it gave the idea for SpareRoom. He believes compatibility is less about shared interests and more about rapport, lifestyle, and habits. He also personally knows what it’s like to have financial hurdles stand in the way of pursuing your dreams in a new city, which is why he’s excited to give two lucky people this opportunity.
If you can believe it, each of the available bedrooms has its own walk-in closet, private bathroom, and office area. And that’s not to mention access to the entire sprawling, 3,400-square-foot loft, which boasts a giant open-plan lounge/dining room/kitchen and a 1,500-square foot roof terrace with 360-degree views and a 17-seat barbecue area.
