Hi Wendy, hope you get this message. I have a very interesting design story to share with you. It is about Jane Heiles who was the Fashion editor of Working Woman magazine. Her husband died on 9/11 and its her story of the design she put into the home that he renovated in Warwick. My phone number is 646-319-6111. Hope to hear from you, Best, Carleen Spencer.

Ms. Goodman, though you may not intend it, your word choice surrounding "where to go to get deals" in the current real estate market is insulting and provocative to the many people who have already been living in these neighborhoods for years. Going into "emerging" neighborhoods and taking risks? No wonder why residents in neighborhoods like Harlem, Greenpoint, Bed-Stuy and Bushwick get defensive when new people start moving in.

A neighborhood is a neighborhood, period. It can not "emerge." The term "emerging" is really a masked way to say that it is becoming populated by either whiter people, wealthier people, or both. Please stop using this kind of language when discussing real estate. It's one thing to say that a neighborhood is getting more businesses, or that crime is dropping. But the whole "emerging" thing so clearly sets up new residents versus old residents, which only fans the flames of class and race tensions in these neighborhoods.

This sounds great!!!! Developing the whole city by the children of the 1%. The locals can be moved into the Hudson river to be dredged up to work changing the diapers of the 1%. And the rest are in prisons. Great urban solution.

The next fronteer is truly the south Bronx; and after that Southern Westchester. Measure, in time, the trip from Yonkers or New Rochelle to midtown, compared to Queens.

What's old is new:
1) Murphy beds
2) Cohousing

Sorry, but your guest is dreaming if she thinks Perry Street is in or near the Meatpacking District.

We just renovated a smallish house in Brooklyn. We love the tiny bedrooms upstairs and a HUGE open space on the main floor. We have a fluid kitchen/living room and it's a great place to hangout.

Apartments can be so efficient that you never have to leave your home?

Ugh, this sounds horrible. People - more than ever - need to get outside
and interact with the real world.

Ms. Bernstein, you completely missed your guest's point about the young people not engaging with each other!
