Peggy's Upper East Side Apartment Hunt
Did you catch last night's MadMen? Peggy is shopping for an apartment on the Upper East Side! Real estate is a topic which all Manhattanites obsess over: I've -run- to submit a lease application, been hugged by colleagues for snagging a sweet 1 bdrm with 500 Sq ft terrace.
Myself and my husband visited half a dozen places Upper East Side some months back, after our lower Manhattan apartment building was massively impacted by Hurricane Sandy. We collectively (with the rest of the city) burst into laughter when Peggy's realtor supports the value of the space will increase when the "second avenue subway" is finished. Did you know they *still* tell you that?
Gothamist has a funny recap worth reading including these fantastic vintage media images:
