  • Those prices for Red Hook and Bushwick border on obscene.

  • Orient Ave is not Bushwick. Williamsburg, 5 minute walk from Graham L.

  • literal rather than the statistical term “outliers”. i think the most shocking listing is that Red Hook is corcoran putting that price out there. its not like the commercial space is going to be a wal-mart. and busiwick is elliman. you know supply is tight when they are taking this junk that will sit and won’t sell.

  • I think the Red Hook building is beautiful. But I’m not sure it is even finished.

    The house on Orient Avenue is FAR from Bushwick. I live on this street. We are smack dab in Williamsburg/East Williamsburg (English Kills for the old-timers) as the listing itself says. Bushwick Avenue runs nearby, but actual Bushwick is at least a mile south of here on the other side of Flushing. We are closer to Greenpoint than we are Bushwick. The price is actually typical of many others that have sold on the block fairly recently. I also think the price is high, but I have thought prices in Williamsburg have been insanely high for years.

    It’s a 5 minute walk to the Graham stop if you walk SLOWLY. My house to the stop is 3 minutes tops, faster if Im in a hurry.

  • yeah, although south of grand, east of bushwick in the East Williamsburg IBZ is commonly considered bushwick as of late…..but north of metropolitan? definitely not bushwick.

    price seems high to me too, probably should be a lot close to six figures assuming it’s a total gut, no?

    Well the house 2 down from it is also listed for 1.15 Million and is in need of a lot of work from what I hear. This one is actually in decent shape and still has all the woodwork, fireplaces, etc. A co-worker just moved from the basement studio last month after living there 2 years and she said the house was really nice upstairs – just needed cosmetic work. Of course I think all these prices are insane, but some folks pay for that 11211 zip code I suppose. I do like what is happening in the neighborhood – all the work on the park, new families moving in, very safe, and very easy to commute to Manhattan if you want to, or just stay in the neighborhood. We now have lots of good restaurants, coffee shops, and even shopping is getting better.

  • can’t comment on the price, but Orient Ave. is in Williamsburg, off the Graham L. It’s right around the corner from a renovated park, and kids can walk to PS132 which is a good elementary with a G&T, or go to the new school, 414, or to 84 or 31 which are all magnet schools in District 14. Also, reasonable distance to IS318, which is a great middle school and there was a movie made about it – Brooklyn Castle. School has been in the news because they won the National HIGH school chess championship. With so many families looking for houses, suspect that it will sell without too much trouble.
