This week, our readers were interested in stories on the state of the Brooklyn and Queens rental markets, where new development is skewing prices upward, as well as a piece on why some NYC buildings lack a certificate of occupancy. We also looked at companies that offer doors and panels that fit IKEA cabinets, so you can get a custom kitchen for a lot less money.
