Letter traditionally serves as a year-end wrap-up and often includes big picture commentary on the state of affairs for the economy & commercial RE. This year's letter includes positive commentary on commercial real estate including NY and Washington DC and expectation for a long sustained recovery. The tone, however, was more conciliatory - acknowledging need for change to regain 'luster.'"
