Phony bidding war costs Brooklyn apartment buyer thousands


He may have not been the first agent to do that, but how many snarkily boast to their own buying client in writing?


I met that agent a year earlier at an open house (when he was at Corcoran; this story has broken while he's now at Citi Habitats), and I had been impressed. We called him Bright Eyes. Unlike the buyer's broker we ended up using at another firm, Bright Eyes actually listened to my feedback and tailored his suggestions accordingly, repeatedly working hard to get our business by offering smart recommendations.
I looked at his Facebook profile a couple of days ago (three kids; spouse dressing up as RBG) and found several commenters making fun of him. His surname's kind of unique; I wondered if he'd shamed himself out of the biz for life. Well, he's deleted all that mocking.

I don't blame the neighbor at all.


Chickens are legal in NYC, though, and she loves having a backyard tiny farm. I wish she'd share of those eggs.

Thanks! And hi since around a decade ago, unless there are other Tubbses around town. 


I think my chicken hoarder wants an adult bird, so I'll ask them if they do that, legally or otherwise. And she'd keep a rooster if she could, but has already been fined thousands of dollars for that and for ducks, after a neighbor narked on her.

I'm not sure where else to ask this (either offline or elsewhere here)


An acquaintance here in NYC wants to buy a chicken, as a pet ideally earning its keep as egg-layer -- not for food -- to add to her current Brooklyn backyard flock of four. Normally she buys from live-poultry places. But she complains that the meat chickens are too fat to walk. And I assume she doesn't want a sick old $1/lb. laying hen normally sold for stock making.


She would love to be able to buy a hen from a tristate-area farm with laying hens. Anyone know of one in their exurban neighborhood?
