When Graham Patterson begins his first year at Columbia University, he will be moving into a newly renovated Harlem apartment. “I wanted to buy something that would serve the twin purposes that Graham could live in it during his college years, and then I could sell, keep or rent it,” said his father, Dennis Patterson, 59 years old, a Rutgers University law professor. While some college students are decorating dorm rooms, others are moving into new apartments as part of a family investment strategy. Although the phenomenon isn’t a new one, real estate insiders say they are seeing new twists on the trend. It isn’t just foreign...

MSNBCLiving In New York City Co-Ops Vs Condos

In many ways, the New York City real estate market is unlike any other in the United States. One of the biggest differences between NYC and Any-Other-Town, USA, is that apartments for sale in NYC are either condos or co-ops. In most places, condos are the rule but not in the Big Apple.

AvenueDiane Arbus Slept Here

A 126-year-old converted stable in Greenwich Village, once the hideaway home of a famed New York photographer, hits the market.
