An inside account of the high-stakes world of Manhattan residential real estate. Gaines takes us from New York's most expensive condominiums and co-ops to the offices of its most powerful real estate brokers to reveal the displays of ego, bad behavior, and status hunger that come into play when the best addresses in the city are on the line. Gaines weaves a gossipy tapestry of brokers, buyers, co-op boards, and eccentric landlords and tells of the apartment hunting and renovating adventures of celebrities. Here, too, is a chronicle of the changes in Manhattan's residential skyline, from the slums of the nineteenth century to the advent of the luxury building. Gaines describes how living in boxes stacked on boxes came to be seen as the ultimate in status.--From publisher description.
