The January issue is live

Between fears of a Mayan apocalypse and uncertainty over the fiscal cliff, the new year certainly kicked off with a bang—albeit not a literal one. (Phew!) So what does it mean for New York City real estate?

This month, The Real Deal turned our sights to the year ahead, gathering predictions from real estate pros to gauge what the residential and commercial markets will hold in 2013. We also looked back at the blockbuster deals of 2012, from the priciest home sales and residential leases (and the brokers behind them) to the most expensive commercial leases and building buys.

Also, we asked, does it pay to give? For New York City’s real estate elite, a high-profile donation or seat on the board of one of a powerful philanthropic institution can lead to fruitful business relationships.

Also in the issue: the Corcoran Group’s famous French bulldog, the city’s top listing photographers, and profiles of the Ponte family (whose extensive Tribeca portfolio may finally hit the market), WeWork’s Adam Neumann (who is making a play for New York City office space) and top Douglas Elliman broker Joan Swift.

Finally, in our Closing interview, we sat down with Michele Kleier, the founder of Kleier Residential, and learned how a robbery at gunpoint inadvertently propelled her into real estate.
