Once again we start with some disclaimers:
These numbers are unofficial.
These figures, did not come from the .NYC registry or Neustar the operator of the extension or SnapNames.com which held the auction. All these numbers came from bidders that may have won or lost landrush auctions.
All numbers are rounded off.
Here are some of the winning bids according to some of those involved:
The domain name MedicalMarijuana.nyc sold today for $5,000. Medical Marijuana was approved to be sold legally in the state of New York, recreational use is still illegal.
OfficeFurniture.nyc sold for over 9,000
manhattanapartments.nyc sold form over $8,200
pilates.nyc sold for over $7,000
manhattancondos.nyc sold for over $5,500
Limousines.nyc sold for close to $4K
Its interesting to note that according to reports there were not a lot of bidders in any of the .NYC auctions with most auctions having 5 or less bidders but still the few in the closed auction believed the domain names were valuable and drove the prices up
