It’s going to be interesting to see what this new listing at 119 Clarkson Avenue ends up going for. The interior of the one-family house is beautiful (and the exterior’s not so bad either, especially if you like the idea of having a three-car garage) but the location presents something of a challenge. Clarkson is several blocks south of the PLG’s “best” blocks and this house is located just a stone’s throw in from Bedford Avenue. (It’s also located next door to this eccentric house.) The asking price of of $849,000 seems reasonable for the quality of the house itself but we suspect that the location will end up dragging it down a bit. Agree?

Could work finally be starting again at 339 Greene Avenue, the 12-story high-rise that has been under construction in Bed Stuy for more than five years? When we stopped by recently, we noticed workers on the site. And earlier this month, the DOB approved three new alteration type 2 permits. The 57-unit project has been […]
