If a player owns ALL the lots of any Color-Group, the rent is Doubled on Unimproved Lots in that group.

New York Avenue is the third orange property and is one of the most-landed-on in the game, partly due to the "Go Back 3 Spaces" card and its proximity to the Jail corner. As with the last properties of other groups, it has slightly higher values than its neighbors: St. James Place and Tennessee Avenue

The Orange properties are great investments and this one is no exception; it is the first property on the track capable of generating four-digit rents and the first property to have a $100 mortgage value. Although it only makes $50 more than the other Orange properties, an extra $50 more each time it gets landed on can help in the long run.

Orange properties should be acquired whenever possible, since the orange properties are the most landed on in an average run around the board. This can be very pleasant when an opponent is in jail and rolls a nine (two-die combination) and has to pay to get out. This property is likely to be landed on from the nearby St. Charles Place, Electric Company, or States Avenue. Regardless of where an opponent is coming from, the more improvements there are on New York Avenue, the better.

In addition, it is one of the spaces the player could land on from a "Go Back 3 Spaces" Chance card (the others being Income Tax and Community Chest), thus if someone rolled an 11 and was able to avoid the hotel initially, once they get this card, they would be in for a nasty $1,000 surprise!
