"Mr. [John Tepper] Marlin (former Chief Economist for the City Comptroller's Office) expects that there will be more defaults on buildings as condominium and co-op owners fail to pay their common charges, and also more sales of foreclosed properties. Rents will continue to dip. There will be longer lines at the grocery store, because fewer people will eat out.
