Over the last cycle, real estate fortunes were made by those who bought NYC land and vacant buildings in areas prime for future development. Neighborhoods like Harlem, West Chelsea, andWilliamsburgcome to mind. Today, major institutional players are making the same bet on the Hudson Yards by snapping up land.
