In Steele's introductory post on Curbed in May 2004, he wrote: "New York City is the self-described real estate capital of the world, but even to those spending the $1 million it takes to buy an 'average' apartment in Manhattan -- or those dropping $2 million to, you know, get that second bedroom -- the rules of the game can be obscure, and good information hard to come by.
Since then, Curbed New York's coverage has expanded to include Brooklyn real estate and neighborhood trends, and has included original reporting on Williamsburg waterfront development, regular market reports from appraiser Jonathan Miller, and -- among some of its oddball stories -- coverage of a cat killer prowling the streets of Woodside, Queens.
Curbed's network of sites now includes 10 blogs -- in addition to Curbed New York, there's Curbed San Francisco and Los Angeles; in the same three cities, meanwhile, there are Eater and Racked, sites devoted to restaurants and retail; and Gridskipper, a travel site recently peeled away from Gawker Media -- that Steele says attract about 1 million unique visitors a month.
