    This is a question that everyone knows the answer to. And here it is: because you're near Central Park. Think of it this way: if you live or rent in The Hamptons where is it going to coast the most? The answer, as most people know, is the closer you are to the water (ocean or bay) the more valuable the real estate. This is also true with locating near Central Park, which is one of the most popular desinations in Manhattan.

    But let's say it isn't in your budget to buy or rent on Fith Avenue or Central Park West? Consider this: if you are willing to walk a little bit extra to Central Park why not live further west or east. It will only take you 10 minutes to get to the park. Try a street inbetween train stops as these tend to cost less.
