This is not the way to sell a condo. To illustrate a real estate listing for a DUMBO property that purportedly offers "stunning views of the Manhattan Skyline," a broker used a photo taken just days after the 9/11 attacks that shows the still-smoldering World Trade Center site.
According to Brownstoner — which uncovered the listing titled "BEST PRICED 1 BED! DUMBO LUX BUILDING!! in the real estate section of the New York Times website — "[t]here are plenty of brokers with the poor judgment when it comes to what photos to include with a listing," but this one "takes the cake." Commenters point out that the photograph was reportedly taken on the Manhattan Bridge on Sept. 14.
