House of the Day: 146 Hull Street


Here’s a renovated two-family with a few original details and a front sunroom extension at 146 Hull Street in Ocean Hill for $449,999. It looks to be in good condition, at least in the photos, and is close to five subway lines, including the L and the A. How do you like it for the price?

    Ocean Hill is a new neighborhood name for me. I thought this was East New York.

  • Where Bed-Stuy meets Bushwick… Ocean Hill. Thats why you can still get 2 or 3 family brownstones in the 400K range because no one recognizes Ocean Hill name. Best kept secret til now.

    Ocean Hill is situated perilously close to the J/Z subway tracks. Anyone living there is hard pressed not to hear or see the train trestle. While this house looks nice from the photos, it can probably be purchased for $400K because the neighborhood is a little rough and there’s the issue with the subway tracks and the noise associated with that.

  • Ocean Hill is grouped in with Brownsville. Agents are desperately trying to sell it as Bed Stuy. Ocean Hill has the highest number of homeless shelters and rehad centers. Perhaps, not all that desirable.

    since i always love to hang out in brownsville, this could be a keeper. new trap… better than the old trap….

  • Wow, I’m a little surprised at the comments about Ocean Hill. As someone who was born and raised in Bed Stuy and has lived in Ocean Hill for the last dozen years I think I should maybe clear somethings up. Ocean Hill is not a newly named neighborhood – about the time that I moved over there they were trying to get the name Saratoga Square to become popular because it was redistricted to mostly become part of Community Board 3 (Bed Stuy.) At that time they rehabed a lot of abandoned city owned properties and built a number of new homes. It is not East New York, it is not Bushwick, it is not Brownsville. In the time since I purchased, my property value had more than doubled. I have never seen an obviously homeless person in the neighborhood. I don’t hear the elevated subway constantly (Hull Street is actually off of Fulton, not Broadway where the J runs.) Is there crime? It’s NYC, what do you think. But that crime map so helpfully provided by Boerum Hill, there are more clusters in Bed Stuy then there are in Ocean Hill. I can be to the City or shopping in Westbury, LI in 30 minutes or less. What it needs? Bank branches and bank operated ATM’s.
    Is the house overpriced? Yes, I personally know of a two family house not far from this one that has been on the market for more than 2 years that’s $399k fully detached. Smaller house on a bigger lot but the neighborhood remains a hard sell unless you have someone like me to tell you otherwise.
    I should also point out that the lots on Hull Street are extremely narrow…

  • If you’re in Bed Stuy, just keep rolling east and a couple blocks before you hit Broadway, you’re in Ocean Hill. Easy access to 6 subway lines including the L. Its a quiet area with the lovely Saratoga Park. There is no subway noise unless you’re living a few houses off of Broadway. Of course Broadway has lots of commercial activity, including plenty of supermarkets.

    You get affordable Brownstones that will go up in value as Bed Stuy’s gentrification continues. This is an investment area where you can live and not have to pay over a half million to get into the opportunity. I’ve seen flippers parking their cars and taking pictures often in the neighborhood and I’m looking forward to new restaurants and coffee houses moving in.
