  • Ridiculously ignorant comments.

    Yes, obviously expensive sales outside of Brownstone Brooklyn have to be made by the “criminal underword” and “money laundering schemers”.

    You can tell which commenters just arrived to Brooklyn, and have no clue about most of the borough. There are beautiful and very desirable neighborhoods in Southern Brooklyn; they’re just different than those navel-gazers living in the brownstone neighborhoods.

    Expensive sales IN Brownstone Brooklyn are also made by the “criminal underworld” ie people in finance.
