From August 10-16, 2021, a total of 165 sales units throughout New York City experienced price reductions. Among them was a West Village townhouse located on a timelessly charming block, but gut renovated to offer fully integrated smart technology, a private garage, a temperature-controlled wine room, and an infrared sauna and steam room. The townhouse also features a private garden and several terraces, and Lady Gaga rented the home for a few months while working on an album. However, the history and enhancements have not yet won a buyer - the townhouse was originally listed for $23 million in January 2018, relisted for $17.5 million in fall 2020, and reduced again to $15.7 million.

A borough away, a Brooklyn Heights penthouse also demonstrates that even an address in one of the city's quaintest neighborhoods is not always enough to woo buyers. The grand scale, triple exposures, endless closet space, and wraparound terrace should not hurt either, but its price was reduced by $1 million. A full, sortable chart of the past week's price reductions may be found below.
