Great Explanations: Donald Trump's Obama-Baiting Gong Show Was All To Sell Condos, Of Course

We've got no real quarrel with Donald Trump here at New Construction Manhattan. Aesthetically, we might favor Superior Ink or HL23 over the "big gold box" style of the older Donald Trump Birth Certificate NYC CondominiumsTrump Manhattan condominiums, but we can certainly see the appeal in new Trump condominiums such as

 

and Trump Place. And while The Donald's shouty, humorless self-promotion and cartoon ego can make him a little tough to take on television, even we have to give it up for Trump Park Avenue, which is one of the more impressive pre-war condo conversions on Park Avenue, and among the elite pre-war condo conversion listings in all of Manhattan. Yes, Trumpian real estate grandiosity can be a little silly. But no, we've got no problem with his luxury condominiums; luxury condominium listings are kind of our thing. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy a good laugh at his expense from time to time. This would be one of those times.

New York Burger City: Two Manhattan Neighborhoods Get Prime Burger Outposts

Apartments near Places to Eat in NYCAt New Construction Manhattan, we are not unaware that people browsing Manhattan apartment listings are often looking for different things. This is why we've built our advanced condo search function so that NYC apartment hunters can search condos in specific price ranges and apartments near specific landmarks and so on. It's our hope that a more focused and specific way to search Manhattan condos will lead to a more satisfying and successful experience. That said, there is not currently a search function at NCM that enables you to find an apartment located near a delicious hamburger. For that, we use the NCM blog. No, seriously: we've covered food-related real estate news pretty extensively in the past, and we're not going to stop doing that. We do it for you, readers. And also we do it because we're hungry, and because (in this specific case) Shake Shack is delicious. And so it is with no small amount of delight that we inform New Construction Manhattan readers that condo listings in Battery Park City will very soon be rental listings near a delicious hamburger. And we are further pleased to announce that they are not alone.
