In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the efforts to contain its spread, there's no denying that New York's short-term fiscal future and budget look pretty grim at the moment. And yet, while there is much room for improvement in New York's infrastructure, transit, and housing stock, these sectors are strong enough to lead the city into a brighter future than most.

During the predicted downturn, there will be time to take on a project. For those thinking bigger than making simple fixes and integrating smart home technology, low interest rates make now a good time to snag a property that needs some TLC, hire an architect or interior designer, and create a dream home in preparation for happier times ahead.
