Surprising jump in $4 million plus sales in New York

In my What does the election mean for real estate markets? report after the Election I wrote :
The bull case:  the removal of a lot of strangling regulations and the end of gridlock in Congress will produce stronger economic growth. Major infrastructure spending will boost jobs and wages at the lower end, while lower corporate tax rates and lower personal tax rates will produce increased personal wealth. Interest rates will rise, reflecting the stronger economy, and the demand for housing will increase. Greater wealth and confidence will provide a boost to the higher end of the market.

Is New York the canary in the coal mine?
