A lot went down in the world of real estate this past week — and Instagram was there for us to document it all.
Here’s a look at some of the most interesting uploads from around New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
1. Los Angeles-based photographer Hunter Kerhart catches the Wilshire Grand Center right down the middle in this superb sunset shot.
2. The Manhattan skyline was a lot less crowded in 1940 (but certainly on its way up), as seen in this #TBT from Getty Images.

“They say that it isn’t possible to grasp the concept of another world, that the galaxy we inhabit is the final frontier. I wish that they could see the world through eyes like mine. Eyes that see the universe shrouded in the light of possibility. A light of hope.” #Miami #Brickell #Sunset #QueenOfTheClouds #Home
5. The city’s firefighters put out a five-alarm blaze at 565 West 144th Street in Manhattan on Friday. The fire ripped through the apartment building, displacing 40 families.
6. The Valdivieso Group posted this pic of a glowing SLS Lux Brickell. The under-construction condo tower is wrapped in blue LED lights.
