This book provides a helpful overview for anyone looking to dive into the swamps of NYC real estate. The only issue I had with the book was it's financial and geographic focus.

It is unclear whether buyers in other boroughs will face the same hurdles, but if anything this book will leave you over prepared.

Relatively dry but chock full of everything you actually need to know about coops in NYC. Seriously, everything. Must buy if you are considering purchasing into a coop in NYC. Extremely helpful about what to ask, keep an eye out for, and expect in the best and worst of coops.

This book is perfect for understanding the basics of both co-op and condo life for the uninitiated. It should be required reading for anyone that is thinking about buying a co-op or condo in NYC.
