“Everyone’s really keen to look at this car all of a sudden. And then someone said, ‘Is the price still reduced to $6000?’.”

Investigating, Bing discovered something untoward on Facebook Market.

Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden Buy $14.7 Million Beverly Hills House

After a full decade spent living in a sprawling Coldwater Canyon estate she bought from Candice Bergen, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have upgraded to a new home in a different section of the 90210, where some of their nearest new neighbors include Vin Diesel, Gene Simmons, John Mayer, Kate Upton and Justin Verlander. The retired actress-turned-wine mogul and her Good Charlotte rocker husband paid the full asking price of nearly $14.7 million for their new address, records reveal.

Fastidiously secured behind a huge gate and adjoining gatehouse for a full-time security detail, the new Diaz-Madden estate sprawls across 1.7 acres and ranks as a bonafide compound, with a mansion-sized main house and separate guesthouse, both done up as “custom architectural farmhouses,” per the listing, and designed by ANR Signature Collection, a developer of ultra-high-end homes who has sold previous projects to the likes of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott,

If you’re the sort of person that savors the feeling of telling someone how much horsepower your car has and then seeing that wonderful look of amazement and disbelief, then boy are you in luck. See, there’s two ways to do that: either spend an absurd amount of money for something with 700+ horsepower, or drop a measly $500 on this Isuzu Amigo with an astounding 6.5 HP. I promise people will give you similar gasps of shock when you reveal that number. Maybe in a slightly different way, but still: $500!

Yes, you can be the proud owner of a 1992 to 1994 (it’s not specified in the ad) Isuzu Amigo, but if you’ve always hesitated about buying an Amigo because the 96 HP 2.3-liter four or the 120 HP 2.6-liter four just seemed like too much uncontrollable piston-slapping

America’s Small Colleges Were Already Hurting Pre-Covid. Things Are About To Get Worse.

There was history underfoot at Vermont’s Marlboro College. Tucked away in the Green Mountains, the nonprofit institution founded at the end of World War II held its first graduation in 1948. Robert Frost read a poem at the ceremony and Life Magazine printed a picture of its lone alum: a former rifleman named Hugh Mulligan who spent the years after the war hobnobbing in Paris with the likes of Picasso and studied Shakespeare in operatic form. 

Mulligan died in 2008. And now Marlboro is gone too, shuttered after this year’s spring semester following years of fiscal turmoil. The bucolic 533-acre campus was sold for $1.725 million in cash and debt, plus operating expenses—a sum reportedly “far below the property’s assessed value.”

It’s hardly alone. At least a dozen independent, regional colleges are on the brink of collapse—mostly in the northeast—and all buckling from the one-two punch of dwindling enrollment

Kevin Chisholm’s 60 Guilders and the Carlyle Group have found a buyer for four condos at their Midtown South office-condo conversion.

JLA Home, a home furnishing and bedding company whose merchandise is sold in places such as Macy’s, picked up four, full-floor condo units at 20 West 33rd Street for $35 million.

The company is taking the third, fourth, fifth and 12th floors — totaling 55,000 square feet — as showrooms, said Jeffrey Rosenblatt of SquareFoot, who represented the buyer.

60 Guilders and Carlyle bought 18 and 20 West 33rd Street, which sit between Fifth Avenue and Broadway, for $111 million in 2015. The partnership then converted the buildings into a 21-unit office condo complex with a projected sellout of $206.6 million, or $9.8 million per unit.

The idea was to market the condos first to the existing tenants in the building. In 2017, HUBB

Coach Just Quietly Put 100 of Its Best-Selling Items on Sale for Less Than $200

Coach has recently been doing the most after being quiet for a couple of months. To be fair, Barbra Streisand’s face on a sweatshirt is pretty hard to follow up. But with Jenny From the Block designing her own bag and Coach’s most recent collection featuring artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat, the brand has once again channeled a very New York energy, just without an EGOT recipient this time. And it’s not stopping there.

We expect Coach to round out the year with Jennifer Lopez wearing a ton of its pieces and an incredible sale, like it almost always does. And while this year’s biggest Coach sale is surely yet to come, the brand has quietly added 100 best-selling items to a secret under-$200 sale.

It happened so quietly even I, a shopping writer, didn’t know about it until I was browsing the site trying to find the cardigan
