Urban Family Land

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Families are coming back to the city according to this New York Times report. Big apartments – with three to five bedrooms – are all “the rage,” says the Times, as families rediscover New York City living. Money quote:

“The new Bergen County or Westchester County is now the West Village and the Upper West or Upper East Sides,” Darren Sukenik, a managing director at the New York real estate firm Prudential Douglas Elliman, told the Times. “Big families are back, and nobody wants to move to suburbia. It’s the antithesis of what our parents did.”
