the news real: this week's jumplist

id_news.gifWow, what a very busy week it has been. No complaints, but its left me with a few posts half-finished— my apologies to subscribers and visitors who've been left hanging in suspense since Tuesday :-) Permit me to direct your attention to a few of the original news items which caught my attention this week, while I tie up some loose ends. I'd like to highlight one of the running features of comitini.com today. My personal reading list is compiled on the fly under the heading "the news real℠", in the right column. It is an outbound jumplist which includes the top five real estate headlines on NY Times.com, plus an aggregation of real estate news items, pretty much bookmarked as I read them, in no particular order. The links will direct you to the original source of the news, without commentary. You'll find a copy of this week's "the news real℠" jumplist below.

The Hungry Cabbie

taxi_skyline.jpgid_blogs.gifIt's said that it is possible to eat in a different New York City restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner, each day for the rest of one's life, and never eat in the same place twice. At the intersection of Broadway & Gourmand, a man is standing dedicated to changing all that. 'Famous Fat Dave' aka David Freedenberg, is a NYC cab driver who's blog, The Hungry Cabbie just couldn't happen anywhere else than in NYC. This is the real thing— local man with obsessive drive (pardon me) meets Web 2.0 technology, and goes global. Dave eats his way through the traffic, in all five boroughs, publishing a Web log of street gastronomy that reads as a documentation and celebration of our diversity, neighborhoods and people; not to mention the shawarma, pasta and pastrami.

the corcoran report: fourth quarter 2006

Corcoran Report Q4 2006market reportThis is my special edition of the corcoran report. It is a comprehensive view of the Manhattan marketplace in the last quarter of 2006 which is analyzed and compared with data from a year earlier. I'm pleased to present it here for download, along with some commentary about the state of the Manhattan market that's posted after the "jump". It is also the first corcoran report to carry the new title of Vice President near my name, since I was promoted last Thursday.

Get Smarter Agent, or smarter agents?

smart_razor2.jpg
id_tech.gifI was quoted in this week's New York Magazine regarding Smarter Agent, a new location based cell phone service for searching properties, using the phone's GPS location cross-referenced to a database of listings. I know there's something attractive about an advertising medium distributed on ubiquitous mobile phones that are aware of where and when I'm accessing the system— especially if I own the local MacDonald's and it's lunchtime. Beyond lunch, the jury is still out on people finding it to be a very useful way to find a home.
