New York will survive this (Views from 2 Sutton Place South via Brown Harris Stevens) New York will survive this (Views from 2 Sutton Place South via Brown Harris Stevens)
Well into another week of sheltering in place in a largely closed-down city, it's natural to wonder if we'll ever see the end of this. For some, it is the end of their time in New York City. The Wall Street Journal talked to city families who had contemplated a suburban move and then taken the plunge in the wake of the pandemic, citing fear of contagion and lack of fresh air and space. And with Governor Cuomo reporting that some of New York's less densely populated areas could reopen faster than others, they might feel extra-justified.

It may feel good to escape in the short term, but the move could come back to bite some in the long term. One person interviewed said, "Who knows what the city could look like after." Indeed - as Lower Manhattan's renaissance in the years following 9/11 shows, New York has been known to come back from tragedy stronger than ever. Those who stay will get a front-row seat to New York's recovery and revitalization, and some for prices they couldn't have foreseen pre-pandemic.

The 41 listings that had their prices reduced over the past seven days include a Brooklyn townhouse, a Park Avenue home in an Emery Roth-designed building, and several units with private terraces for fresh air without fear and spectacular views to boot. Please note that the following figures reflect cumulative price cuts and not the most recent reductions.
