Investment sales in the city have returned to Earth after an end-of-year frenzy.
Ten New York City i-sales in the $10 million to $40 million range were recorded last week. Brooklyn led the way with eight sales, while Manhattan had two and the Bronx had one. Together the sales fetched $162 million, well below the $370 million that deals in that range gathered the week prior.
Here are more details.
