Make it this month’s. The May issue—teased online today—is all about real estate, taking the morbidly fascinating route of recording memories from the boom times and reflections as the market turned. It’s nothing you didn’t know, but it fleshes out the story, capturing the insanity with great little anecdotes from brokers, agents, developers, non-profit types, and your average Joe Schmoe condo buyer: how it feels to live in a nearly-empty new condo building, for example, or the burgeoning business of cleaning foreclosed houses.
A good way to remember what a bubble looks like, before the next one pops.
