While it is far too soon to speculate on the long-term effects of the pandemic on the New York City real estate market, it is becoming clear that some New Yorkers are craving more space and privacy after weeks on lockdown in small apartments. A recent week saw more townhouse contracts signed than just before the pandemic

However, well before the first case was reported, townhouses attracted a certain class of buyer seeking extraordinary real estate. A REBNY residential report from Q1 2020 found that Manhattan one- to three-family homes were asking an average of $10.7 million, and Brooklyn prices averaged $2.6 million, but perhaps this is not surprising - as Jonathan Miller observes, "Townhouses are a niche luxury market with limited supply." We take a look at the most beautiful townhouses to come on the market in recent weeks.
