View Full Version : When i said the crisis won't end until Manhattan real estate drops 40%, people think it is funny.

Now, i think even 40% is too little. Definitely more than 60% fall.

Prime real estate in HK fell 60% during the Asian financial crisis, and it is not even one third as serious as the current crisis.

I believe it. Though the conservative nature of co-operative ownership has at least kept the worst kind of mortgages largely out of Manhattan RE, a fact that has thus far spared the area of the declines seen in other hot markets across the U.S.

It will be the '70's all over again...

hopefully, enough chaos returns to manhattan that there'll be a nightlife again, as opposed to the yuppie retail therapy imposed on the place.

I'll be on the look out for cheap real estate near columbia... :D
