The holidays are the perfect time to thank the people who add value to your life. We are very lucky to live in this wonderful city, where we are surrounded by people who help us day in and day out. This is the time of year when it is customary to tip, however you may be unclear how much you should tip. The amount that you tip depends on numerous factors. Are you an owner, a renter, are you “high maintenance” or do you require very little attention? Do you receive many packages and ask for favors from time to time? What level of service do you receive? When to tip is also a good question to consider. Most doormen and service providers prefer to receive tips during the first few weeks of December so that they can use the money to do their own holiday shopping. Others prefer to receive tips spread out so that they don’t spend it all at once. In order to bring you the recommended tipping amounts based on service providers, I have aggregated information from Brick Underground, New York Times, and New York Magazine, among some lesser-known sources. I hope you will find this guide useful!
As a New York City real estate broker, I am an avid reader of The Real Deal, a real estate-focused website that does a monthly column called “The Closing” in which a market leader is interviewed. In line with the recent opening of the 160 Leroy Street sales office this month, I am featuring The Closing’s 2012 Ian Schrager interview. Schrager is a NYC real estate developer and hotelier, whom you likely also know as the co-founder of Studio 54. His most recent NYC project, 160 Leroy Street, has sold nearly half of the 49 units within two weeks of launching. The Herzog & de Meuron-designed building will have 15 stories and each of the condos will have a unique layout. Prices begin at $2.6M for an 1,100 SF one bedroom. There will be a 6,000 SF five bedroom for $25M as well as a 12,000 SF penthouse with 7,500 SF of outdoor space and a private pool. The price of this home has not yet been disclosed but it is likely to move quickly.
Hint: The Oreo Cookie was born here in 1912.
