Top 6 Fall Events in New York City

Top 6 Fall Events in New York City

This weekend marks the start of the Fall season! Who doesn’t love making the most out of fall? Even in the city that never sleeps, the leaves die and the trees fall dormant making for incredibly beautiful scenery and cool breezes all of which encourage people to break out their fall attire and bask in the long-awaited cool weather.

 While cozying up with a hot cup of tea and a good book are certainly tier one fall activities, your flannels and boots will look much better out on the streets and at some of New York City’s best fall events. There’s plenty to choose from for a variety of ages and interests, but these top five are absolute must-sees in NYC.

6. Blood Manor

Looking for something spooky in honor of Halloween? Look no further than Blood Manor - New York City’s scariest haunted house experience. The house includes 5,000 square feet of terrifyingly themed rooms and passageways with everything from zombies to clowns to werewolves and more. It is described as the most “intense, creepy and ‘scream inducing’ haunted house attraction” in the New York tri-state area.

General admission tickets are priced at $40 at the door or $38.50 online. Blood Manor is open from October 1 to November 3. The haunted house is not recommended for children or anyone with a heart condition, but anyone else is guaranteed to have a terrifyingly good time. Oh, and don’t forget to wear something you don’t mind getting blood on.

5. New York City Food and Wine Festival

The New York City Food and Wine Festival is the largest food and wine festival in the region.  It will take place this year from October 12 through October 15. This event is a collaboration between the Food Network, the Cooking Channel and Food & Wine Magazine aimed at bringing attendees some of the tastiest cuisine in the country. Guests are invited to enjoy demos by nationally-acclaimed celebrity chefs, multi-course dinners at popular local restaurants, tastings and opportunities to see Food Network stars in action.

4. New York Botanical Garden’s Giant Pumpkin Weekend

3. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

   via

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is so much more than a fall activity to cross off your list.  It’s the world’s largest parade, an American icon and for many families, a holiday tradition. If you’re available to attend on Thanksgiving morning, that will be one more thing you can cross off your bucket list.

 For those who may not know, the Macy’s Day Parade has been a part of the city since 1924 and each year attracts around 3.5 million people. Over 2,000 performers flood the streets including dancers, clowns and marching bands and each year the parade features 30 large floats.

Be sure to verify the parade route before arrival and plan to arrive early to do your best to beat the crowds. You’ll thank yourself later when you remember to dress in layers.

2. Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade

   via

Sure, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is known around the country and is basically a New York City staple...but nothing beats dogs dressed in Halloween costumes. That’s why the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade is number one on our list.

If you’re a dog lover, you won’t want to miss this event. If you’re not a dog lover you can see yourself out. This is the place for all of the city’s best dressed pups to come together to show off and compete for thousands of dollars in prizes. This event is free and open to the public. The runway competition begins promptly at noon so don’t be late!

 1. Apple Picking in The Hamptons

   via

What says fall more than getting out of the city and into a beautiful orchard for some fall festivities? The Hamptons are equally as beautiful during the fall season as they are during the summer season. If you are looking to get outside in the crisp air with latte in hand for apple picking, check out Seven Ponds Orchard and Hank’s Pumpkintown.

Seven Ponds Orchard, located in Water Mill, offers apple picking with multiple varities including McIntosh, Honeycrisp (our favorite), Fuji, and more. They are open every of the week until Thanksgiving, and also offer hayrides and a corn maze for the kids.

Hank’s Pumpkintown is well known on the East End and a family favorite each season. Also located in Water Mill, it is a great place for the family to enjoy apple and pumpkin picking. They also offer a variety of fall favorites for sale including mums, straw bales, Indian corn, and baked goods.

3 Things to Consider for the Fall Real Estate Market

New York City Skyline

Fall will officially be welcomed September 22nd, however, the fall real estate market is already getting in full swing. This season is typically a busy one for New York Real Estate with increased activity post summer including listings coming to market and new developments launching sales.

 If you are considering buying or selling before the end of 2018, ensure you are set up for success during the fall seasons as it may be prime time to make a deal. So, what do you need to know?

Time

Speaking to luxury properties, absorption rate is up nearly 16% versus a year ago. What does this mean? Expect a longer time on the market going into the listing. Yes, your Broker helps reduce this time and sell faster than the average, but it is important to note where the average is. Given current supply, it would take 16 months to sell all the luxury homes listed in Manhattan in the second quarter. This is up significantly even from a year ago. During the last weeks of July, luxury properties were averaging 536 days on the market.

Price

Simply put, the price must make sense. Sellers that purchased in 2011-2014 that are selling now feel that property should be priced significantly higher than where the market is today. Buyers are more attuned to price, and if the numbers make sense, they are more inclined to act. They are even more so inclined to act if the property represents a bargain.

More price scrutiny may come into place if the buyer is purchasing as an investment because resale numbers must make sense for them as well. Work with your broker to set a pricing plan – discuss price every X days, and if there is zero to little activity, agree in advance to reduce the price by Y every X days to stay relevant.

It is important to understand the crucial role pricing plays in the current market. No one wants to take a loss on their purchase, but if selling is the most important, sometimes getting a deal done means a significant price drop from the original ask.

Broker

Even though Buyers and Sellers have more information and access to information to make informed transactions than they did 10 years ago, listen to your Broker! A Broker has access to even more information, they are your boots on the ground. They know what is going on across the market at various price points because of their proximity to the industry. Listings where Sellers are not listening to the advice of their Brokers are sitting.

New Developments arriving this Fall

The fall is an exciting time as many new listings come to market, including new development. There is still an ample pipe of new development coming across all boroughs from Manhattan to Queens and Brooklyn. Below are a few to keep an eye out for as they hit the market this fall in Manhattan.

  •  100 Franklin- Situated across the street from the Roxy Hotel in TriBeCa, this project will bring 10 full-floor homes from DDG Partners

  • Greenwich West – Located at 110 Charlton Street in West SoHo, Greenwich West will be a collaboration between two Parisian design firms, Loci Anima and Sebastien Segers, and be comprised of 170 condos.

  • 200 Amsterdam- After fighting for approval, 200 Amsterdam will be one of the tallest buildings on the Upper West Side, clocking in at 668 feet. The building will have 112 units with a distinctive crowning top.

  • 1010 Park Avenue- Extell is bring new development to Park Avenue with 1010 Park Avenue design by Beyer Blinder Belle and interiors by David Collins Studio. The apartments are expected to be very luxe with prices starting around $15M.

While the views are not the focus of the restaurant, they will certainly impress. In fact, the staff was trained with the blinds down so the view was not the focus, but rather the food and hospitality are the main focus. The dining room offers a pre-fixe, 3-course menu for dinner for $78, while smaller bites can be ordered at the bar in addition to a burger.

Boating

Waterfront Development Offers Buyers Yacht Access

   via

From Manhattan to Brooklyn, developers are snagging up some of the last waterfront parcels to develop what will be the next wave of trophy properties and coveted buildings. Examples in 70 Vestry Street in Tribeca, The XI in West Chelsea, and One Manhattan Square.

In a luxury market that is saturated with inventory, developers are continuing to entice and innovate when it comes to amenity offerings. The latest waterfront property to grab the attention of buyers seeking amenities is One Seaport in Lower Manhattan. What is better than waterfront living coupled with a yacht? Nothing some would argue!

One Seaport, built by Fortris Group, has partnered with members-only yachting service Barton + Gray Mariners Club. Residents will be able to walk out the lobby and onto a Hinckley Yacht. Currently, residents are entitled to 3 complementary yacht excursions a week. There will be an extra charge for fuel and champagne. This amenity for residents of One Seaport packs value as a membership to Barton + Gray Mariners Club would normally set you back $20,000-$50,000 a year.

   via

One Seaport has been a popular new development in the heart of the revitalized Seaport District, luring buyers with an expansive amenity offering, luxe finishes, and wonderful water views. The residences are completed with luxurious finishes such as gold calcutta marble backsplashes, Gaggenau appliances, and grey limestone in the bathroom. The full suite of building amenities includes a port-cochere, fitness center overlooking the water with Brooklyn Bridge views, and a “Water Club” on the 30th floor with hydrotherapy and a pool.

   via

The building is currently 75% sold, however, we do expect additional inventory to be released for the fall selling season.

This particular amenity offering comes at an interesting time when the city has been expanding the NYC Ferry System on the East River. Commuters are looking for alternatives to the crowded, unreliable subway system. Many wealthy commuters have opted to take Uber to and from work given the convenience and relatively the lost cost compared to a monthly transit pass.

In an effort to get people out of the crowded subway system and onto the water, the city has pledge some $600 million over 5 years towards the NYC Ferry program.

For those looking to take cruising the East River and beyond to a new level, the private yacht offering at One Seaport is certainly the way to go!

Inside the 2018 Hamptons Designer Showhouse

The 2018 Hamptons Designer Showhouse is underway, and we got an exclusive first look inside during the opening night Gala at the Bridgehampton home. Each year, the Showhouse allows designers to exhibit the latest in design trends all while benefiting the Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. This year’s home is presented by Traditional Home and was built by Barsalin Building and Design.

The home is located just past Channing Daughters Winery and nearby to Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor Villages. The 8,000 square foot home is finished on 3 levels and comprised of 7 beds and 7.5 baths. The home is situated on 2 acres with a gunite pool and tennis on the exterior. The design features signature Barsalin touches. From the moment you enter, you are greeted with magnificent scale thanks to the double-height foyer that extends fully to the Great Room where a 25’ wall of glass overlooks the backyard and pool. An Open floorplan is at the core of the home’s design with a grand kitchen that flows to a 3-sided glass breakfast room, to a Butler’s Pantry/Bar, as well as an oversized outdoor Dining Porch.

The home features beautiful materials throughout such as gray rift oak cabinetry in the kitchen and the most up-to-date electronic plumbing systems from Kohler in the Master Baths. The Showhouse designers have used this extraordinary canvas to exhibit the latest interior design trends from modern to nautical.

We’ve highlighted some of our favorite spaces throughout the home, but with so must to see and all the inspiration that can be found, we highly recommend a visit to the house!
