These days, you’re not in the know unless you know the data.

Thankfully, The Real Deal’s 12th-anniversary volume of the Data Book is our biggest yet. The 2017 edition explores both the residential and commercial sides of the industry, new development, the luxury market, and offers a look at the records broken in 2016, like the most expensive listing ever offered, a $250 million spread at 220 Central Park South.

As a taster, watch the above video to see the top five Manhattan neighborhoods with the biggest increase in total dollar volume in 2016.

As well as the regular annual rankings (top agents, biggest investment firms, etc.), this year’s Data Book offers info on the top rental landlords in New York City, the all-time top condo developers and the city’s most active architects. The commercial market coverage includes the city’s office market, as well as the multifamily market, the retail market and the hotel market.
