Property values in Manhattan are showing no signs of falling, and that includes those lucrative corners for vendors. I personally fancy that little spot over on 53rd and 6th that serves one delicious lamb and rice combo.

Pasang Sherpa is a hot dog vendor that just paid $362,201 for the food-vending rights for the north entrance of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He paid $81,701 more than what he paid for the south entrance when MoMA auctioned off the sales rights to two of its corners.

What a deal?! There are two multi-million dollar custom homes built in Paradise Valley by Five Star Development.

I bet the Red Cross doesn’t get this many applicants when they ask for it. An unprecedented 60,000 people have sent applications to the Presidential Inaugural Committee to volunteer for activities surrounding the swearing-i of Barack Obama — even if it means just giving directions or friendly hellos to out-of-towners at airports and Metro stops.

Let's go incognito for a change and put down that camel-colored paperholder you call a briefcase, shall we? I personally prefer a neutral shade of black and the Ralph Lauren Black Satchel Briefcase definitely gets the job done. The silver “accoutrements”...
