How High Is High? How Are You Doing?

[Gothamist] (www.gothamist.com) yesterday posted an interactive map on housing prices in NYC.  Take a look [here] (http://gothamist.com/2013/10/30/interactive_map_where_is_the_afford.php), and hover over your neighborhood to see how well you are doing and where, as the report says, “you can no longer afford to live.”

The information comes from the NYC Finance Dept.’s property assessment data. The detailed data can be found [here] (http://www.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/property/assessment.shtml#roll).

Gothamist’s skinny on the market:

Short analysis: Manhattan and Western Brooklyn have unsurprisingly continued to skyrocket over the last four years. Greenpoint, Chelsea, Southern Brooklyn, parts of Harlem and the Garment District have all exploded in prices; housing prices are also on the rise in the south Bronx. More surprising: they are on the decline all over Queens and eastern Brooklyn.
