Is NYC’s Real Estate Bubble Cracking?
I read the NY Times article this weekend “Worrisome Pileup of $100 Million Homes” and wondered if the problem was real (or how real). After watching the “The Big Short,” how could you not?

MediaRadar’s CEO– from past to present: get to know Todd Krizelman
Before Kevin Systrom and Mark Zuckerberg, there was Todd Krizelman, one of the youngest Internet sensations of the first dot com boom. In 1995, as a 20 year old student at Cornell, he cofounded a social media company called TheGlobe.com, based in New York City. TheGlobe.com allowed users to engage with one another through chat and games, while also being able to publish their own web pages. On its first day going public, shares flew from $9 to $97! But, in 2 years, the stock would only be worth $2.Read
