    As New York City ushers in an era of vast development projects — whether the Freedom Tower, Hudson Yards or massive plans for Manhattan’s East Side — a glance back at the life of developer William Zeckendorf Sr. is proof that there are no new ideas under the sun.

    Trend alert! The hottest new marketing trend for suburban housing developers is farms. They’re called “agrihoods,” and although they’ve been around since the 1980s, they are now becoming more popular with large developers, who are banking on farm-fresh food to lure people to their communities.
