Kelley Mansion Breaks Bed Stuy Record With $6.275 Million Sale

These open house picks all have unique features, including a two-car garage and a two-story colonnade porch. Only the most expensive pick, in Cobble Hill, is in the brownstone belt, with the rest in Bushwick, Bay Ridge and a stunner in Prospect Park South.
