DreamHouse6

Both condominium complexes (1 & 5 Renaissance Square comprise two separate complexes)  at the Ritz Carlton have experienced a more uneven recovery than Trump Tower.  This is probably because the finances of both complexes caused some concern for a couple of years.  This was mostly due to the unfortunate timing of the openings and the financial travails of the original builder (Louis Cappelli).  As a result, the Ritz Carlton took a bit longer to recover from the housing recession.

Trump Tower – White Plains – Sales History –  2011-2015

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – By the fireside…

By the fire....

I went to a wonderful party on Sunday afternoon.  The home had a large number of happy people celebrating the holiday season.  As the party wound down, I became aware of the cutest cat that I’ve seen in a long time.  Apparently, she had been keeping a low profile while so many people had invaded her home.  But as the celebrations quieted down, she came out of hiding and made a beeline  for the warmth and comfort of the fireplace.
