The rise and rise of New York’s Billionaire’s Row
Widely acclaimed as a global city, New York’s eclectic mix of boroughs and neighbourhoods gives it a rich and diverse identity that is envied the world over. Shaped by nearly two centuries of economic cycles and the architectural and urban planning trends that accompany them, the city that never sleeps is also continually evolving.
But one particularly notable development in recent times is the rise of a Manhattan neighbourhood that caters for the super-rich. With breath-taking views, luxurious interiors, endless amenities and eye-watering price tags, this new wave of properties are strictly for those with a 10-figure bank balance.
But how did this area come to be? What sparked its growth in this particular district? How were planning controls addressed, and how did engineers make the development of such small scraps of land commercially viable? The B1M uncover the story behind New York’s Billionaire’s Row in this acclaimed documentary.
