Yesterday's NY Times real estate section had the dishy but ultimately depressing article about men who buy pied-a-terres for their affairs. Gothamist was struck by two quote:

1) "In the movie 'Pretty Woman,' she only wanted to get married, but a lot of the pretty women in New York really only want a condo," said Michele Kleier, president of Gumley Haft Kleier, who has brokered her share of such transactions, typically condominiums in the $2 million to $3 million range.
2) Norman Horowitz, at Halstead, further emphasizing the typical mistress profile: "The women were in their late 20's, very good looking, with no particular skill set."

Gothamist knows this stuff happens, but reading this article, we actually felt like the women's lib movement was taking two steps back. Plus, there was no word on whether or not the mistresses got to keep the condos. And God help us, did you realize that there was a special 10th anniversary edition of Pretty Woman?
