42 Crosby Street, #4N (Corcoran) 42 Crosby Street, #4N (Corcoran)
A strong first quarter in terms of apartment sales and contract activity has invited sellers to re-list top-of-the-market homes with the hopes of luring increasingly-covetous buyers. Manhattan's apartment inventory has steadily dwindled over the last several months and a dearth of new condo construction suggests that higher prices may loom on the horizon. With condo closing price down 6% year-over-year on a price per square foot basis, and mortgage rates still relatively low, bargain-hunters are out in full force to capitalize on Manhattan's still-soft luxury market.

We have been scouring NYC listings for some time now and it's been interesting to see how decor tastes have changed. Clean, white-box and highly functional interiors have taken a backseat to warmer, more inviting spaces that are splashed with colorful talking pieces, plantings, and natural materials. Surely, it is no surprise that during the pandemic many residents invested in making their homes more comfortable, characterful, and inspiring.

A more recent shift is that fully virtually-staged apartments have become seen as off-putting due to buyers recognizing their degree of disingenuity. In response, professional stagers have become more adept in making empty apartments seem more like a lived-in home instead of a furniture showroom.

Below are our picks for the most stunning new listings to hit the market in recent weeks. These apartments enjoy sweeping views, expansive interiors, and top-of-the-line appliances and finishes. However, such elegance comes at a price out of reach to most New Yorkers.
