I guess the cocaine den with the mirrors is the best deal then - that one’s COA fee is only $3,723 per month.

Then again there seems to be some weirdness in those listings - all but one has square footage listed as 212,505 sq. ft., which I presume is the entire building, so maybe Zillow is aggregating something wrong. Because a COA fee surely couldn’t really be pushing 10k even in ritzy buildings, could it? Or maybe there was a massive assessment recently? Still though

I would argue that while it has probably faded, it's not far off the original color. The cabinets are solidly early 70s.

there are definitely tons of price errors or typos on Zillow

however I could actually imagine a 10k monthly fee at a ritzy building in NYC easily. Actually part of that is probably why the price is so low - only 475K for park avenue? I've seen this in other cities, where a condo will have a lower list price in exchange for higher monthly fees, or vice versa. I assume the idea is a lower list price with higher fees might be more beneficial for someone planning to live there only short term.

Something similar I saw was in a condo listing in north chicago, right on the lake, the list was only like 200k, but the fees were several thousand a month. The same building had units with much higher listing prices but much lower monthly fees.

Nope it's a thing NYC realtors do when they don't want to reveal the actual square footage of an apartment but still want it to show up in searches for minimum square footage so they make up a 5- or 6- digit number they use for several listings. Real estate in NYC is shady as hell, there's a reason why it's the only part of the country that mandates floor plans be provided for every listing.

And yes, NYC condo fees are loving insane especially for buildings with cache (if it has a Wikipedia page with a list of celebrities that have lived there it's gonna cost you an arm and a leg) or associations with poor financials

quite a dead zone on the left there unless there's something just out of frame. nice chairs though :p

I had an estimate today for what they called "kitchen renovation." Basically you keep the existing cabinet boxes, but replace the doors and hinges with bigger ones that gave a frameless appearance. And of course they paint the frame to match. The estimate they gave me was about 30% of a full reno, so definitely something I will do at some point!

They were super professional, three people showed up, and they had a computer and monitor with them to show a mockup right then and there. I then asked if they could email me the mockup pictures, and they said "that's proprietary" (until I actually buy of course).

Slab doors with built in recessed handles, that would own

Those exposed rafters are interesting designwise, but painfully functional. Probably help a little bit in the fire rating, but I see most places with those covered on what looks like a fire retardant, probably so the whole building doesn't cave in during a fire.
