The real estate bookshop is back

I'm taking a little break and traveling this week. I've been quite busy recently working on new business; resulting in a few half finished posts, while also tweaking the blog's CSS, and refining it's typography and visual elements over the past couple of weeks.

I'm donating all profits to corcoran cares, an initiative to give back to the communities that we live in and serve.

Update 2: Soho Townhouse duplex apartment now $7950

We've just improved the price of this ideally located duplex, in a federal style townhouse, to $7950 monthly. It is located on King Street, at the crossroads of Soho and the West Village. The tree lined block is lovely and away from tourist din; but accessible to the shops, restaurants and entertainment, which make downtown living great. It's a spacious and private 2200 square feet (aprox.), with three to four bedrooms, a real roof terrace, wood burning fireplaces, and central air. This unit is a modern, sunny apartment, in which everything has just been renovated. It is vacant and available right now.
