Speaking of Pittsburgh real estate... the NYT highlights what $275K buys you in the Pittsburgh real estate market. You know.. folks in NY really can't understand most Pittsburgh real estate pricing.Even what seems incredibly expensive to us is still awfully cheap to anyone owning anything in Manhattan or environs. When I moved back to Pittsburgh from Manhattan many years ago (and long before the uber inflation in NY real estate prices).. I was looking at apartments and when folks would tell me prices I once seriously almost asked if they were quoting me a price 'per room'. and I imagine the price disparity between Pittsburgh and NYC real estate has only gotten a lot wider in the intervening years.
How long ago was that? I remember wanting to research local rents before coming in one weekend and I remember having to find a newstand off of Times Square that sold the Sunday PG to find classified ads.
Still... looking at the NYT piece I really wonder who in Pittsburgh pays $275K for that? I checked the ebay listing I mentioned recently, but the ebay ad itself has expired. The winning bid was around $3K I believe. That's about the amount you tip the doorman in some buildings in Midtown isn't it?
