This week, readers visited Brick Underground to read about how Brooklyn shifted to a seller's market in 2020. The borough has seen demand increase from buyers, and listings drop, but that could change once more properties hit the market in spring.

Also of interest: Residents in luxury supertall towers, like 432 Park Ave., are dealing with significant noise when wind makes the building move—and that's just one of the several design-related issues they're facing.
