Quote – Op-ed by George W. Olvany, special counsel to the Real Estate Board.

You can no longer distinguish the real estate owner by the smile of prosperity, because his property is now a burden and a liability instead of a comfort and a source of income. To own a factory building in New York City is now a calamity.
