When Pizzeria De Santo opened at 173 Ludlow Street in January, the 900-square-foot spot seemed situated for success; it sat on one of the heaviest trafficked blocks on the Lower East Side, one that breeds late-night pizza cravings.

ALL BUSINESS: Commercial brokers protect their spoils

The term "vulnerable" is not typically associated with the alpha dogs of New York City's high-powered commercial real estate world.

VILLAGE VOICE: The Gentrification Project That Turned into a Rat Castle on Ludlow

It turns out that a steaming bowl of noodles may be an antidote to the city's real estate woes.

DOWNTOWN EXPRESS: Burlesque Owner says Downtown’s Grit is It

New York real estate might be known for its big personalities, but there are a host of owners and investors like Frank Ring who shun the spotlight. Some publicity-shy players are revered in the industry for having orchestrated some of the city's biggest deals: Lloyd Goldman, Jeffrey Feil and Joseph Cayre, for example, are spoken of in reverential tones by commercial brokers as high-powered, big-money wheelers and dealers.
