Weekend Links

Presidents Day Weekend, the traditional nadir of real estate in New York. Not only is it February, but it is a holiday weekend in February. This year, of course, with all that is going on, perhaps it is more pronounced. On an optimistic note, at least on a seasonal basis, it doesn't get any slower. With low rates, a stimulus plan, a future housing plan, and an $8000 home buyer's tax credit, we'll see what spring brings.
I was delighted to see the NY Times article on East 82nd Street between Third and Lex. When I moved to New York in 1974 (I was 7), this is the block where I first lived. Pretty cool graphic in the story as well:
