The Osborne, #2DB (Sotheby's International Realty) The Osborne, #2DB (Sotheby's International Realty)
While the city's new condos and skyscrapers have garnered considerable attention, New York is also home to buildings that have stood since before the 19th century with apartments that rarely come on the market. In addition to being rich in original architectural details, these homes are frequently priced to sell, allowing buyers to get a steal on a piece of New York City history. However, it must be noted that sometimes when a listing hasn't been on the market in decades, it often hasn't been updated in decades, either. As such, any money saved on these homes' sticker prices might go straight toward bringing them into the 21st century.

From April 12-18, 2023, a total of 347 sales listings throughout New York experienced price reductions. A number of notable listings, some of which are on the market for the first time in decades, may be seen below.
