Great Moments In Real Estate Advertising: Manhattan Style Living

I almost shot hot chocolate out of my nose when I saw this corker on Broadway this blustery afternoon. Granted, I have not been to Manhattan lately but this does not strike me being something one would ordinarily see there. At least not without a neighborhood association or two raising holy hell first. No sir, masterpieces of this caliber are almost exclusively an outer-borough affair.

I would also be remiss if I didn’t point out that this advertisement’s claim that this excrescence is “new construction” is somewhat disingenuous. Believe it or not this building was once a carbon copy of its neighbor to the left. Now it is “Manhattan Style Living”. Lucky us.

  2. Oh yeah, Dirty Old Man Realty. They are in a race with Maximillion to represent the most unworthy property in Brooklyn.
