This week, readers visited Brick Underground for the positive ways in which the pandemic has transformed New York City real estate. The city was one of the hardest hit places, but it changed some aspects of real estate for the better, like digitized co-op board applications and paving the way for virtual closings.
Staff writer Austin Havens-Bowen covers the rental market and answers renters' questions in a column called Realty Bites. He previously reported on local news for the Queens Ledger and The Hunts Point Express in the Bronx. He graduated from Hunter College with a BA in media studies.
