Why fight against the town hall when you can instead do real estate business with it?

New York City was active in the real estate market last week as a buyer and seller, grabbing land for schools in Inwood while selling development rights to Greenpoint.

Biggest contract of the week was for homeless shelter in Hell’s Kitchen sold by Triumph Hotels co-founder Horn Shimmie for just over $ 25 million. The building is operated by Care for the Homeless, a non-profit homeless services organization, which received $ 11 million in government grants in 2019, according to tax records.

The six investment sales in the $ 10 million to $ 30 million range last week reached $ 113 million. Three were in Brooklyn, two in Manhattan, and one in Queens.

The previous week, sales of investments in this range had totaled just over $ 200 million.
