Happy Thursday everyone! Every Thursday we set out to share a tidbit of real estate history with you. Do you know an interesting event, obscure real estate law, or funny real estate story that you’d like to see featured in our series? Then email Jennie with your contribution at email@example.com.
Today’s Throwback Thursday Tidbit:
1799: The City of New York sells a virgin tract (now bounded by Broadway and Sixth Avenue on the west, Madison Avenue on the east, 33rd Street on the south and 36th Street on the north) for $2,600 to John Thompson for farming. The Empire State Building currently stands on this piece of land.
