This week, readers checked out Brick to learn about Manhattan's sales market in the third quarter. Sales of co-ops and condos in the borough fell year-over-year by almost half, but the median price for co-ops slightly increased and leaped 19 percent for condos, according to the latest Elliman Report.

Also of interest: New York City co-living has taken a hit during the pandemic because of the loss of young renters, international students, and tourists, but it's still a good option for NYC renters who want flexibility. Brick spoke to CEOs of some co-living companies on how the experience has changed in the Covid era.
