Fewer New Yorker may be forced to buy flood insurance in the future, thanks to an appeal by Mayor Bill de Blasio s administration.

The M新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区ayor’s office asked the Federal Em上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝ergency Management Agency (FEMA) to redraw New York City’s flood maps, arguing that they are too pessimisti爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fc, and the agency agreed to do so.

Our city needs precise flood maps that reflect real risks, both today and years from now—and we have to do that fairly, de Blasio said in a statement.

The new maps will likely shrink the boundaries that determine who is required to buy flood insurance.

Shortly after Hurricane Sandy hit New York in October 2012, FEMA redrew 上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝the city’s flood maps for the first time, doubling the number of homes that required the purchase of flood insurance to qualify for federally-backed mortgages. Meanwhile, the 2012 Biggers-Waters Act had ended a de-facto federal subsidy of flood insurance, causing premiums to rise dramatically.

The agency will now analyze flood data to draw new maps. Until that’s done, insurance rules will be based on 2007 flood maps and construction will be based on 2015 maps, Crain’s reported. [Crain’s]  Konrad Putzier

The president-elect and his daughter Ivanka Trump will both leave their executive roles上海千花网论坛 上海千花网 at the Trump Organization, putting the company in the hands of Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg.

Standing next to a table stacked with dozens of document-packed file folders, Trump attorney Sheri Dillon detailed the president-elect s plan to distance himself from his wide-ranging business interests, several times emphasizing that Trump was taking the measures voluntarily because conflict of interest laws do not apply to presidents, she said.

“He instructed us to take all steps realistically possible to make it clear that he is not exploiting the office of the presidency for his personal benefit, Dillon said, noting that Trump “will resign from all officer and other positions he holds with the Trump organization entit上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰ies.”

Socialite Shafi Roepers Upper 爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fEast Side co-op is back on the market for $65 million — with no discount in sight.

The third-floor pad at 4 East 66th Street was listed in late 2015 at the same price for seven months, before being yanked off the mark新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区et in May 2016.

At approximately 7,000 square feet, the massively grand and vast co-op is still asking $9,285 per square foot, according to the listing. That s in the ballpark 爱上海同城 爱上海of some of the priciest units at new development condos like One57 and 432 Park Avenue, where an $87.7 million condominium traded for over $10,600 square feet last year.

The exclusive, J.E.R. Carpenter-designed building has been home to other well-known residents, including the late Alan Ace Greenberg, former CEO of Bear Stearns. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen paid $25 million for the penthouse in 2011, property records show.

John Legere

John Legere and 91 Central Park West

John Legere, the unconventional CEO of T-Mobile, is 上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛cutti上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝ng out of New York.

Known for his pink T-shirts and online c爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛ooking show, Legere listed his four-bedroom apartment at 91 Central Park West for $22 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Legere bought the 3,000-square-foot apartment for $18 million in 2015. He later received approval from the city s Landmarks Preservation Commission to acquire the rights to the building s roof in order to expand the apartment by 2,246 square feet.

Those plans never came to fruition, however, after Legere signed a three-year contract extension with the wireless carrier, which has k上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛ept him in Seattle.

In its current form, the unit has 1,700 square feet of terrace space, and a tower lounge featuring 14.5-foot ceilings.

The expansion plan would preserve details like the apa上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区rtment s herringbone floors and stained glass windows, while optimizing the Central Park views and vistas, said Legere.

The apartment was reportedly once the love nest of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst and his mistress Marion Davies. Lee Mindel, the architect hired by Legere to expand the apartment, told the Journal he found Davis initials etched into a fireplace.

Yoron Cohen

Yoron Cohen settles defamation lawsuit against JLL Broker claimed former bosses called him “checked out”

Yoron Cohen

Yoron Cohen settled his defamation and age discrimination lawsuit against his former brokerage JLL, according to records filed in federal court.

上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰

Terms of the settlement were not immediately known. Cohen and JLL did not respond to requests for comment.

Cohen, one of New York’s top investment sales brokers, left JLL for Colliers International in December 2016.

Five months later, he sued JLL, alleging he was repeatedly denied contract extensions and that the company favored younger brokers. He also claimed his former阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿 bosses called him “old,” “tired” and “checked out.”

Cohen accused JLL of defamation because an unnamed company executive told The Real Deal in January 2017 that Cohen had been told his team was underperforming. (Full disclosure: TRD received a subpoena in the case.)

Case Shiller

Nationwide gains in home prices just half the story, report shows The higher prices in some major cities may be slowing the pace of sales

The positive news for the economy is that housing prices throughout the U.S. remained strong in May, maintaining their steady growth.

The CoreLogic Case-Shiller national home price index released Tuesday showed a 6.4 percent gain from the same period last year. That is similar to the growth recorded in April year over year.

The less positive news: Hi上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛gher home prices are affecting the pace of sales, which is slowing around the country. New home sales reached an eight-month low in June, dropping by 5.3 percent from May, while existing home sales fell for the third straight month.

David Blitzer, who leads the index committee at S P Dow Jones, said price increases are affecting affordability. Factoring income into pricing, it has “gotten consi新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区stently worse over the last 18 months,” he said.

That’s reflected in some of the larger markets around the country. In Manhattan, the number of home sales dropped by 34.2 percent year over year in May. While home prices were higher than they were a year ago, they’ve barely moved since March.

Miami too may be showing signs of slowing. The gain in prices in the second quarter was 2.3 percent less than the gain in the first quarter, according to a recent report by Attom Data Solutions.

Real estate industry players have argue阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿d that a lower share of union workers on construction projects has been driven by inflated labor costs上海夜网 阿爱上海同城.
