The Afternoon Wrap: Monday

  • The Afternoon Wrap is getting 2007 off to a grand start by posting our first link to The Party for Socialism and Liberation. An article on New York real estate and the scary Pinnacle Group points out: “[U]nlike Trump, most of the real estate capitalists keep a low profile. Most workers will never meet them nor even know their names. While families in cities like New York City struggle to pay at least $1,000 a month, big capitalists are collecting billions.” [PSL]
  • But back to gleeful capitalism! Down in Florida, legendary Celtic Larry Bird has put his waterfront abode on the market for $4.8 million. That’ll buy you “a bar with a 500-gallon, salt-water aquarium and multiple balconies” and “a waterfront pool with a spa, private dock and a tiki hut.” [WSJ]
  • Round II of the Curbed awards are in. “DUGO,” “NoMaS” and “Hell Square” take honors for new ‘hood nomenclature; Trader Joe’s and Red Hook’s Fairway get some prizes, too; and “The Party Barge” is officially The Most Anticipated 2007 Opening. [Curbed]
