Foreclosures down in NYC region

The New York City metro area was far from the nation's gambling capital last year when Las Vegas came out tops in the percentage of households hit with a foreclosure-related filing. One out of every nine Vegas households got such filings, or 10.9 percent of all households there, said RealtyTrac, while it was 1 percent, or one out of every 93 households, in the New York City region, which includes Long Island and parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
That put the New York City metro area at No. 148 in a list of the nation's 206 biggest metro areas, RealtyTrac said. This translates to 79,849 properties in the region, a 5 percent drop from 2009, data show.
