A friend passed on this tidbit from the "Ask Barbara" (Corcoran) column in the Daily News:
"Madison Square Park is picking up speed daily. With celebrities moving in (Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have just bought there!) and big brand developers drawing up blueprints, prices will soon go through the roof!
"Remember, Madison Square Park is tiny and there's not a lot of properties to go around.
"So get your husband out of his La-Z-Boy chair, put on your sexiest dress and take the old guy on a stroll around Madison Square Park this weekend. You'll probably come home as the proud and sexy owner of a brand-new condo."
Barbara Corcoran used to refer to herself as the queen of Manhattan real estate. I never bought into that--the duchess, maybe, but not the queen. That title, of course, belongs to Elizabeth Stribling. However, Barbara got it exactly right this time.
