These Manhattan Neighborhoods Saw The Biggest Price Cuts In 2020


If you thought you missed your chance to land a bargain in New York City’s housing market, you may be in luck. The average asking price for condos, co-ops and townhouses across Manhattan have dropped by nearly 10% this year, according to new data from UrbanDigs.

Chaotic conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with an influx of new listings have driven home prices down by an average of 9.3%, when comparing the original asking price to the last asking price, UrbanDigs data shows. A total of 10 Manhattan neighborhoods have seen the average price drop by 10.7% or more.
