Broker group’s first holiday video is a ‘beaut’
A group of New York City residential agents has made its first holiday video, spoofing the Oscar-winning actress’ “American Beauty” character, and it’s funnier — and less cringe-worthy — than the Blackstone Group’s annual production.
The New York Residential Agent Continuum’s video depicts its own members as Bening’s character, real estate agent Carolyn Burnham, trying to sell an apartment. Eight agents take turns channeling Burnham in the cleverly written four-minute video.

There's a big difference between what 'penthouse' used to mean and what it actually means now
When most people think of a penthouse, it's the top-floor unit of a luxurious residential building that typically comes to mind.
But in 2019, the definition of a penthouse has become murkier. In New York City in particular, prospective buyers must navigate terms such as "triplex penthouse" and "sky loft" and figure out why a unit called a "penthouse" might actually have floors above it.

Puck Penthouse IV
Hits the Market Again, Now For $35 Million
If a top-floor penthouse in one of Midtown Manhattan’s sleek skyscrapers doesn’t quite appeal to you, now there’s a chance to snatch one that’s just as lavish, but in a low-rise in Nolita, instead, just steps from SoHo. Penthouse IV, one of the six bespoke penthouses in the Puck Building, a Romanesque Revival style architecture designed by Albert Wagner in 1885, has returned to the market after a two-year hiatus, with a higher price tag and a different broker, too. The 6,000-square-foot residence is now listed for $35 million by Town Residential. Public records show that it last hit the market for $27.5 million in 2014 by Douglas Elliman. It was listed as a $85,000-per-month rental earlier this year.

Lavish Puck Penthouse Returns with $35M Asking Price
Way back in 2013, one of the opulent Puck Penthouses entered contract for $27.5 million, though it’s not clear if a sale in Penthouse IV—the second-largest of the lavish apartments atop Nolita’s iconic Puck Building—ever closed. Now, nearly three years later, only a few of those lavish pads are still available to buyers—including, as of recently, Penthouse IV, which is back and asking $35 million. It was (and still is) recently listed by Town as an $85,000/month rental.
