10 Years of New York City Townhouses

Posted June 22nd, 2017 by Jason Zylberberg Download Report

New York’s townhouses are highly-prized for their prestige, privacy, outdoor space and architectural heritage. They are quicker to purchase, posing fewer hurdles than New York’s ubiquitous condominiums and co-operatives. In this report, we analyze pricing and sales activity over the last ten years of these sought-after properties.

We analyzed pricing trends* in nine New York neighborhoods with the highest distribution of townhouses. Many of the city’s grand Beaux-Arts and Neo-Federal houses on Fifth and Park Avenues, homes to Rockefellers and Vanderbilts, have been lost to demolition and replaced with condominiums and co-operatives. Those townhouses that remain command premium prices in both emerging and more established neighborhoods.
