New York Residential Specialists (NYRS) are getting ready for a night at the theater.
On April 1, they’ll attend Atlantic Theater Company’s production of the musical The Threepenny Opera, with ticket proceeds benefitting the theater’s arts education programs.
The performance will be held at the Linda Gross Theater in Chelsea, with a reception to follow with the cast and creative team of the show.
Shirley Hackel, NYRS co-chairperson and associate broker at Warburg Realty, said the division is growing and “our goal to add more philanthropic events to our calendar is coming to fruition.”
The arts education programs serve some 3,500 public school students every year. The company also awards over $100,000 in scholarships annually so that underserved young people can study at the Atlantic Acting School at little to no cost.
Choreographed and directed by Martha Clarke, The Threepenny Opera cast includes Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham and Tony Award nominees Mary Beth Peil and Laura Osnes.

A&I Broadway Realty’s Valentina Sharapan is accepting offers on a 2,177 s/f loft space at the coveted 15 Central Park West.
The ground floor space is currently raw but, says Sharapan, it offers the buyer an opportunity to create a private office, study or even a live / work unit.
“It’s a blank canvas,ˮ said the broker. “The tenant must make alterations, so they may choose the option to change use and obtain a certificate of occupancy, although the live-work use must be approved by the management.ˮ
Situated on the southeast corner of the building, the high-ceilinged property gets superb natural light and has a semi-private entrance on West 61st Street.
The apartment has five windows on Central Park West and three windows on West 61st Street.
Sharapan said a long lease would also be considered. That is being offered at $19,950 per month.
It was only a matter of time folks.
Drone technology has made its way into the American real estate market.
“Drones have been used for military reasons for 20 to 30 years, but in the last five years costs are coming down,” said Derek Tye, president of The Tye Group, told the Cincinnati Enquirer.
After hearing about drones being used for home tours out west, Tye bought a remote control helicopter, attached a GoPro camera to it and started making videos from the sky of properties he was selling.
Tye cuts the footage into videos that he narrates and uploads to helihometours.com and YouTube.
The drones are reportedly most popular in California where they are used mostly for cliff-side homes to get a view from all sides.
CORRECTION: News of Trish Goff’s move to Elliman last week included an inaccurate reference to a 2013 Rookie of the Year award. That honor did in fact go to Eric Brown.
