As PropertyShark checks in on New York’s most expensive neighborhoods, it also reveals buyers’ shifting priorities and wish lists. While Tribeca’s combination of historic conversions and eye-popping new construction helps it cling to the top spot with a median sales price of $4.34 million, the newly constructed Hudson Yards zoomed to the second spot on the list with sales in 15 Hudson Yards, its first residential building. Further downtown, the redeveloped Puck Building was a key factor in Nolita/Little Italy surpassing Soho and knocking it down a spot.

Nine of the top ten most expensive New York neighborhoods are in Manhattan, but Brooklyn cannot be counted out. The Cobble Hill House, a new development that combines brownstone traditions with contemporary wishes, accounts for 17 out of 29 transactions in its neighborhood and nudges Cobble Hill into the upper echelons. See New York’s ten most expensive neighborhoods and the best of what they all have to offer.
