How affordable! I'll take two units--one to live in and one for out-of-town guests!

That kitchen still looks vaguely institutional. If I pay $14,000- can I have a real Kitchen?

Boggles the mind that people would pay upscale prices to live in an area where you are not quite safe, you have to watch your wallet and your back, esp. at night. And gang violence and shenanigans not too far away. I guess its different priorities after all that roof deck and outdoor showers does sounds pretty sweet.

How nice! And you get to live in a hurricane zone B with flood risk from category 2 or higher hurricane! and that's from 2011!
Re; the kitchen - this guy can't quite pull off "luxury" can he?
But damn, evicting poor and infirm elders from their nursing home? I mean it's classic Dickens kind of shitty, yes? The kind of bad guy that everyone this your "legacy" Mr. real estate guy?
"Oh yes I'm THAT guy son!"

Where are all these super rich people? All I see are luxury condos popping up all over the city. Who are they built for exactly???

No salaries under $165,600 please for the 1-BR (not a joke, most apt brokers want your rent to be 25% of your income, though 50% is more common in NYC---still 80K shuts out alot of people).

Yeah there's a real shortage if luxury housing in NYC. Even funeral parlors aren't safe.

It's going to be students, frat boys, & 20 somethings partying night and day with multiple roommates squeezed into make shift bedrooms. Beware if you try to live there

Pied a terre (s) for the trustafarian generation ... "we're buying little Johnny a condo while he's at Stern, and then we'll flip it!"

rentals are income = 50x your rent.. so a $2,000 apartment you need to make $100k.. a $10,000 = 500k and 14,000/4 say 4,000 = 200k each..

and do you get the other half of that kitchen or is that it.

Misleading advertising. This explicitly describes it as a "new building" and "New Doorman bldg". It isn't a new building, just a gut renovation.

Anyway, the prices are tragic/comic, but the saddest part is they are probably already rented.

I agree with most of the commenters here. The price is too much considering that the neighborhood is not what exactly you would call "ideal". Look at all those graffiti! I still hope they can rent this out though.
