.NYC auction features 20 domain names.
A registry auction on NameJet featuring 20 .NYC domain names ends this afternoon.
The domain names have a heavy real estate emphasis. Real estate domain names have an obvious appeal in New York City, which is known for its high real estate prices.
As of right now, apartments.NYC is leading the pack with a $1,600 bid. I expect it to go much higher because there are 57 bidders in the auction. (All 20 auctions have at least 20 bidders already.)
RealEstate.nyc is in second place at $1,310 and Condos.nyc follows at $760.
As a point of comparison, 10 .nyc domain names sold for at least $10,000 during landrush.
There is a $500 reserve on all 20 auctions. Bidders must meet .nyc ownership requirements that mandate either living or owning a business in New York City.
