This 1.5-bedroom condo in an 1898 building has a fair amount to recommend it, including a berth right across the street from Prospect Park.
Perched atop a brownstone at 543 Dean Street in Prospect Heights, this modern duplex penthouse condo has a fetching design, with two outdoor spaces and banks of floor-to-ceiling windows and an oversized skylight over an open staircase that bring in a lot of light.
This thoughtfully appointed two-bedroom condo was designed by a local architect and features custom white oak and wave-pattern details. The newly constructed building replaced a mid-19th-century (or possibly older) farmhouse on a big lot in Carroll Gardens.
This attractive three-bedroom condo occupies three floors of a newly condo-ized Late Victorian brownstone, at 503 Halsey Street in Bed Stuy. It's all newly renovated, with preserved original Neo-Grec details that include ornate mantels, mirrors, stained glass and plaster detailing.
This two-and-a-half-bedroom condo is renovated from top to bottom, and at 915 square feet it's got a price tag of $436 a square foot. Which is notably low for Brooklyn, though not necessarily for the exact locale — which is Hull Street in Ocean Hill, not far from the Broadway Junction train stop.
This two-bedroom condo sits on the 19th floor of the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank at 1 Hanson Place, whose clock tower has long dominated the now-morphing Brooklyn skyline. It’s got some killer views as a result, with a nice pair of arched windows in the living room that take in New York Harbor and the lower Manhattan skyline.
If you pay taxes on a condo or co-op in this city, you may feel like you’re getting screwed. NYC has a bafflingly complicated property tax structure that’s inherently unfair to co-op and condo owners. And the city knows it.
Which is why they created the co-op and condo tax abatement. Taking advantage of this break can shave hundreds to thousands of dollars a year off of a condo owner or co-op shareholder’s tax bills. Here’s how.
The wait is almost over: Phase 1 of the townhouses at Navy Green are within weeks of occupancy. By the time the snow from this blizzard melts, you could be settling into one of these airy three- or four-bedroom homes, each featuring over 3,000 square feet of space.
We recently went on a tour of one of the homes, and when we weren’t too busy daydreaming of living here ourselves, we took plenty of pictures of the interiors for you to check out. Come on inside!
Finally, a little relief for the long-suffering condo owners at troubled building 85 Adams Street in Dumbo. After years of litigation, two once-prolific luxury developers accused of fraud have reached an agreement with the state to repair and relinquish control of the building and two others in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, one of the developers, Shaya Boymelgreen, remains under investigation for fraud at the building and others elsewhere in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
This 1,809-square-foot unit is the first resale at Sackett Union, the Carroll Gardens condo building that opened its doors at 291 Union Street in 2013. It’s got three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a daunting price tag: $2,750,000, or just above $1,500 a square foot.
The place is enormous, bigger even than an old-school co-op, but with a modern layout. Among other things, that means an open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen, measuring 30 feet wide, with a wall of windows.
