From comments posted this week on The Real Deal’s daily blog.

1. Wall Street problems hit high end

Friday, September 26

2. Herald Square hotel-condo developer seeks financial partner

4. High hopes for latest wave of Harlem hotels

5. Still not a buyer’s market in Manhattan

Monday, September 22
I wonder what’s going to happen when the co-op board and banks start fighting over selling foreclosed properties.
