Brooklyn continues to stand out as one of the fastest-growing markets in New York, and the townhouse tops all.

In the Meatpacking District, a plan to transform five low-slung Gansevoort Street warehouses into swanky offices, stores, and restaurants has been held up for years by the local preservationist group Save Gansevoort.

Everyone loves the captains' houses on Sag Harbor's Main Street, but lesser known areas of the village have been gaining attention as of late.

"Today's market is begging for some discounting at the very top, and we've priced our portfolio to account for that," says Extell Development Company's senior VP.

With three new subway stations finally open on Second Avenue between 63rd and 96th streets, this previously lackluster stretch of town is suddenly booming.

It will include new residential units.

Residents are expected to start moving into the luxury condos, which sold for as much as $15 million.

Everyone knows that Brooklyn's where it's at.

Late last year, the Brooklyn Heights Association filed a lawsuit in tandem with the Save the View Now coalition against development within the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
