In the News: Streets paved with gold

THE CITY’S MOST EXPENSIVE STREETS
Property Club did its usual fun number crunching and put Murray Street as the #3 most expensive street in the city, using the most recent home sales data from the NYC Department of Finance from January through July 2019. The Civic Center is the most expensive neighborhood for home buyers, but Finance considers the Woolworth building as part of that neighborhood and not Tribeca. Also for the record: Park Place was #5; West Street was #6; Chambers was #7; Leonard #12 and Warren #16.

TROPHY HOMES NO PRIZE?
The Journal reports that no units over $35 million have sold since a progressive “mansion tax” went into effect in New York City on July 1, but they are slicing and dicing a bit with the stats, since two condos asking over $30 million went into contract last week.

STAY LOCAL FOR WINTER ART
The New Yorker published its winter art preview for the big museums and galleries and calls out the upcoming Artists Space show, with works by Danica Barboza, Jason Hirata, Yuki Kimura and Duane Linklater, in its new home on Cortlandt Alley. (Opening Dec. 6.)

CAPPING FILM SHOOTS
The Broadsheet reports that Margaret Chin has co-sponsored a package of bills to rein in movie shoots downtown – including caps for certain streets. The city “issued permits for 9,000 production shoots in Manhattan during 2018, and almost half of these were for filming in Manhattan. In one striking example, permits for shooting on Reade Street were issued 25 times last year, which means that local residents could expect disruption roughly once every two weeks.”

JAPANESE FLIPPERS COME TO SOHO
Eater reports that Flipper’s, a popular Japanese pancake chain, has opened a store in Soho at 337 West Broadway at Grand. “The chain is known for its “miracle pancakes,” aka soufflé pancakes that jiggle and wobble at the lightest touch.”
