Prices for homes in the New York area declined at a faster rate in November than in any other month on record. According to the S&P/Case-Shiller Index, properties within a 50-mile radius of the Big Apple declined 1.6 percent between October and November and 8.6 percent year-over-year. The news wasn't all bad though: New York prices are still up 87 percent since the index started in 2000. New York also had company in the misery department: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Portland and Seattle all had their worst months ever.
