In the News: Shady Square Footage at 443 Greenwich

••• “‘Ghostbusters firehouse’ to reopen this month.” —Tribeca Trib

••• The woman who was attacked with a metal box relives the experience. Also, “Surveillance video taken prior to the attack showed the woman with the box was on a violent spree. People at a bar near the scene told the victim that they saw her attacker hit someone else before her. Also, the victim said, her assailant shoved a man before she approached her.” —New York Daily News

••• The new album by Beyoncé and Jay Z includes a song, “Salud!”, that mentions Tribeca in its first verse. I hate that point when musicians get so big they can’t sing/rap/brag about anything other than themselves. —Just Jared

Mazel tov, gold bottle talk, wife got a model walk

Spill some out for the past

••• When it comes to New York City real estate, square footage should always be taken with a grain of salt—or, in the case of 443 Greenwich, the whole shaker. “On average, the usable space in each apartment is 13 percent less than the offering plan states, according to an analysis by The Real Deal and CityRealty. A difference of 5 percent—and no more than 10 percent—is generally considered to be non-material, according to experts. In that regard, 443 Greenwich—a magnet for celebrity buyers like Meg Ryan, Jennifer Lawrence and Harry Styles—sticks out because the difference between the gross and usable square footage is so vast.” —The Real Deal



  1. Where can one check online for the actual usable square footage of an apartment (The Real Deal references Department of Finance documents)? Thanks!

  2. So sorry to hear about the vicious attack of a woman in our neighborhood. Does anyone know if the assailant has been caught?
