"Manhattan on Sale? That's the Case With Two Cheap REITS" by Andrew Bary discusses whether Manhattan-focused real estate investment trusts Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE: VNO) and SL Green Realty Corp (NYSE: SLG) could rally as the New York market firms. Both trade at a discount to the value of private-market property deals, says the article.
