Liberty Tower, #PH32 (The Corcoran Group) Liberty Tower, #PH32 (The Corcoran Group)
When most people picture a typical New York City apartment, they tend to imagine either a high-rise with sweeping city views or a walk-up in a charming prewar building. Ground-level apartments rarely figure into the popular imagination, but are nevertheless part of the city's real estate landscape. While these apartments have certain advantages, including private entrances and outdoor space for some lucky residents, they are not necessarily for everyone. Ground-floor units have less light, less spectacular views, and more street noise and odors by default. Additionally, at a time when the effects of climate change are past ignoring, these apartments are most vulnerable to flooding and water damage.

From July 5-11, 2023, a total of 272 sales listings throughout New York experienced price reductions. A selection of notable listings, many ground-floor units among them, may be found below. Please be advised that all figures quoted reflect cumulative price cuts as opposed to the most recent reductions.
